  1. 1. Would you like to see it return?



Recommended Posts

Sup fellas, and lady fellas (fite me reddagger)

 

I'm sure this was brought up so many times before.. but I'd love to get a public opinion about this. To start, I'll give you a bit of background. Back before the major forums update, if you messed up or made a typo in your post, you could quickly edit it and you'd be fine. No pesky "Last edited by (name) at 00:00 PM" or anything like that. It was just kind of like a second chance. Of course, I believe there was about a 1-4 minute cooldown period of some sort.. so if you edited after 6 minutes, it'd show up that you actually did edit your post.

 

Some may be questioning.. "Why the hell would they bring this back?". Many people do miss this feature and it just seems to have disappeared for no apparent reason (that the public knows of). It keeps the post looking neat and free of any random stuff. I think it came back just a short time ago, when the April Fools prank went on.. but then it disappeared again.

 

Would anybody love to see this return? I personally would be happy to see it make a come back :^: Of course, if you don't like the idea, or have another suggestion, feel free to post below. Opinions and other ideas are interesting to read.

 

Thanks~

It's not an absolutely necessary feature but it would be neat to have. I often end up making minor edits to my posts merely a few seconds to a couple of minutes due to, say, a typo or because I'd like to extend said posts a little.

But what would be the point of that though?

 

I stated the reasons for it in the original post.

 

Also, it'd be nice to have it back since it was pretty much disabled out of the blue with the new update.. if there was a reason, it would be cool of a staff member to let us know :)

Yes. Please.

 

Maybe like up to a minute after you post you can ninja edit. Most of the time when I'm editing a post it's either to edit in a quote or fix a typo. It would just be nice if I could make these quick edits without having an ugly tag showing up in my post and making my OCD go off the scale.

It would be nice for it to return. I usually edit my posts because I forget or want to add something, or I just found out I made a mistake so I go ahead and fix it.

Yes, that sounds really convenient. I'd love for this feature to return.

Sure, this isn't a necessary feature, but those of us who are perfectionists and happen to notice our errors after we post would love to have anywhere from a minute to five minutes to edit our posts before "Edited by" is stamped on the post. Half of my posts probably have "Edited by" on it for this reason.

I feel it would be used for trolling, EVERY post of mine has the mark of shame that represents the Edited by Midnight Hitman 2 seconds ago.

It's no biggie.

As far as I can tell, there is no longer a "ninja edit" feature or cooldown period option. It is simply a Yes or No question in the settings whether a particular member group can remove the "Edited By" line each time they edit their post. I don't see this being enabled as it's a useful tracking feature for staff and can easily be abused in the wrong hands.

Okay this is how it would be abused.

 

1.X makes a troll post,people see and report it.

 

2.X ninja edits it

 

3.Mod sees nothing wrong,doesn't do anything

 

4.X puts it back to normal.

 

As much as I would like to see it,they are people like that...sadly :/

When a post is reported it shows the post as it was when it was reported, so editing it won't change what shows up in the report.
