Edit Post Query

This post was about not being able to edit my posts after posted..but it seems to have fixed itself up and made me look like a fool.

Actually I wasn't going crazy.Luckily.

Davids post in the " no washing thread" explained it all.

Sorry about that, Mike. We've just never run into such an unpleasant situation here before, so it was hard to figure out what to do.

It has always been great that members could be trusted to have complete freedom to change their posts if they felt any need to. That has never been an issue before. It was especially valuable with the thread where members were encouraged to list their regimes and how their skincare has changed over time. With luck, in a little while we can go back to that happy state of trust. :)

Many thanks for your patience.

Kind regards,

Aurelia

Ye, it's not a big deal for me, but I wonder if you guys can remove the ability to edit posts only from the offenders?

Hi Mike.

I don't know if that is possible. This is all new to us. However, if the situation can be satisfactorily resolved, then I don't see any reason why things can't go back just as before. It served us perfectly well for two and a half years, so why not in future?

Kind regards,

Unfortunately as the forum is almost real-time, we can only find out who is abusing the edit-after-posting feature when it is too late.

The feature is much restricted now, if you have a bad typo you can nip back in and fix it.

It won't allow 1984 Orwellian revisionists views of what you posted though.

"You" meaning "one", of course. :)

I thought about using the passive third person one, but preferred the big-brother-is-watching-YOU overtones instead .... ( (devil) insert evil laugh here (devil) )

BTW this is a joke; to everyone who worries !

That's the thing about international boards. You can never tell where they will lead you. But thank you for everyone for carrying on in an orderly manner.
