Now i'm really upset. You only made the change to "prevent" abuse, but for no actual reason. What makes you think that suddenly, after all the years where it worked, something like this will happen? Still, you are ignoring the voices of the users and just stick to an unwanted change.
Posts are editable for 6 hours, so plenty of time to fix typos / broken links / image attachments etc
Sorry, but that's nonsense. Links become broken after several months/years, not after 6 hours.
Otherwise, just quote your own post and add the new info as you see fit
And then, after some more posts, that info is lost again in a thread spanning several pages, instead of just being visible in the first post, so noone will read it.
the current forum version does not support this
You are using phpBB, and quoting from the features:
Code: Select all
User's actions on the board can be logged and viewed by administrators and moderators. IP addresses are logged for these actions as well as each post made.
That should give you all the informations, should it be needed.
If you keep upsetting your users, they are just going to leave. I can't imagine that this is what you want.
