The QUESTION is wrong !!
You NEED to re-edit it to use the word RE-EDIT instead of edit.
Because you can always edit a post but can only re-edit it up till after 6-hour.

Man... i hope your 6 hours is not up yet :lol:

I voted for NO.

And it was completely inappropriate to introduce this significant change without communicating it.

Sorry guys, this is a no-go.

I voted 'No' before reading the new posts in the other topic... oops. I'd probably vote 'Yes' now, after finally reading an explanation. :P

I think there should be also the third option in this pool:
- Yes, its appriopriate, especially when done in the atari-forum.com style, which means that its done to prevent something what probably was not noticed by anyone and what is done quietly by not informing forum peasants.

The question should be clearer:

I agree, I had to read that question multiple times to decide whether YES or NO is what I want to express ;-)

Is there a "plugin" that will show history of each edited message?

I think that will solve the problem.

Surely the question can be formulated in many ways, but anyway other participants have published the link to the discussion and there is all the extended information.

It's normal, polls have a time limit or it wouldn't be a poll: it would be a discussion forum. :cheers:

Is there any national or international legislation for the "right to be forgotten", that is, if a user decides to end their participation in a discussion forum and asks the forum administrators that all their interventions be eliminated.

There is. And - at least in theory - it's the same for whole Europe (EU, that is, so it might well be it will apply to this forum until end of the month only).

You have the right to request removal of all your posts (or more exact: the elimination of all information that connects your statements/opinions to your personal data, including pictures of yourself you might have posted). Strictly speaking, you can't request removal of anything you have ever written in a forum, but you can request removal of your personal data (user names, email address and everything you have ever posted that connects your post to your person). This does not give you the right to freely edit/modify your older posts, however. And not necessarily the right to request removal of all your posts.

A poll with a time limit of only 6 hours is just useless.

Everything is relative, a good lawyer and attending to intellectual law, feelings and things like that ... could force them to eliminate comments and even ask for compensation, never give anything for impossible! But that is not the question, what I want to say is that the author of a writing must be the sole owner of his words and should not be limited by the administrators: they can be accepted or eliminated according to the rules of coexistence in the forum , but not limited or modified by third parties. That's my opinion.

It would be very interesting to be able to verify that people agree with the limitation to re-edit messages, they are the ones who least posts contribute, only then can I understand that someone wants to be tied with a chain, even if the chain is gold.
Bad move, administrators who do not care for their participants, and other users who act only to oppose those who claim to continue with the freedom they have had for years and that has not produced any problems. A preventive cure is not admissible, it is considered guilty preventively. I never imagined that the decline of Atari-forum would be originated by its own administrators and just over a dozen users who support it, a worrying number for what was once the most important forum of our little community.

One day someone will create a survey in this forum asking which retro computer is the one he likes most among several options, and of course anything will be chosen except Atari...

Rest assured that a lot of people can't wait for another post in such essential and classic threads as "Atari clothing and accessories", or locked polls that get shot down in a blink of the eye, or dust cover threads, or selling random midi hardware.

In fact, they're so flabbergasted by the quality they actually forget to post in this forum - say, for a few decades! And people whine about the decline of forums!

What I publish are things that all Atari users can use (the offensive ones like you too), instead a specific GFA post and discussions about the sex of angels (to finally not create any program for Atari in the century XXI) are not available to anyone, but perhaps that is what you would like: post inbred and exclusive.
However, my publications are also counted by thousands of visits, we may have to check yours.
Certainly there will always be the dog of the gardener, who does not eat or let others eat. If you don't like my posts, you have the option to block me and not read me, but don't touch my balls, OK?
