Editing your own post. Is there a time limit?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Editing your own post. Is there a time limit?

Postby UKJ » Mon Jun 09, 2014 11:56 pm

I had saved the "under a grand" thread to read. When I read it through, there were several posts that someone had gone back and deleted, making parts of it incomprehensible. I know some forums have a short time window that you can go back and edit , which is a good idea imo. Is there a time limit here?

No time limit.

You can edit "your" posts anytime "you" want.

Hope that answers your question.

Do you think it would be a good idea to put a limit on it? Like 24 hours?

I think it should have a time limit.

Maybe your always allowed to delete it, but not edit it.

I can think of ways where anyone can totally exploit this.

If you did put a time limit will the time limit be longer if you're travelling backwards through timezones?

I remember a guy did exploit it on another forum by going back and editing stuff, and later denying he ever said it! They put a three day limit on it after that.

I would like to have the option to delete my posts at a later date, if necessary.

I guess we can look at changing it if it starts to get abused.

For now I like that members are free to edit their posts at any time. It's your posts, so you have the freedom to edit them when and where you please.

Also, it does show that it's been edited (won't see it in Tapatalk though), so that should help avoid confusion.

Personally, I odn't see teh problem. If you post crap becuas eyou're drunk, just apologise, if you give false information unwittingly, just correct it.

I posted something stupid the other night because I didn't read the original post correctly (only ever happened once, LOL), then I went back and reread the original post and deleted mine.

Shirt happens.
