Perhaps 48 hours to delete or edit a post is still too long

    See this thread. Looks like a bunch of people talking to themselves because the posts they were responding to were all deleted by the poster. Do we really need 48 hours to edit a post. I think an hour is good to catch those typos and such.

    I like that the OP has 48 hours to edit/delete/modify. Yes, sometimes an OP will delete his post making the rest of the thread kind of weird, but those are the chances we take. Having 48 hours makes it nice to, for instance, delete a rental or sale or giveaway post if the item is taken or disposed of in the first 2 days.

    A simple followup post does the same thing. I think my issue with Xenforo is that it is to easy to reply without quoting.

    It 'does the same thing' in the same way as a refund does the same thing as a rescission. An additional post is not the same thing as deleting it like it never happened. Really, I don't care a whit one way or another. It was just an opinion. :shrug:

    I think 48 hrs is a minimum for editing your posts.

    You are provided with 48 hours to edit your posts on TUG. I am not sure exactly what one would need to edit a post from today on Monday, but I suppose it is how it is currently setup. I can perhaps understand deleting a Bargain Deal or Distress listing if taken rather quickly, but that is about it. Of every forum that I post on, this is the only one that allows up to 48 hours. Some of them are only a few minutes, mainly to allow for fixing typos.

    appears something changed with the upgrade to xen...looking into it.

    you should be able to EDIT posts for 48 hours...just not delete them.

    By me, 48 hours is fine.

    I remember when TUG-BBS added the 48-hr limit. Before that, originators could make changes indefinitely, without limit. What triggered the change was a long & contentious discussion (over something that seemed important at the time but that I can't even remember now) from which after a week or so 1 of the participants went back & deleted everything from all of that participants' own entries, leaving major holes in the back & forth for anyone trying to follow along or get in on the discussion. After that, the Grand Pro installed the 48-hr limit, & the rest is history.

    On our previous vBulletin board deletion was not permitted, just editing within the designated time limit. This is because deletion of the initial post in a thread will remove the entire thread. We intended to carry this over to this Xenforo installation as well. The oversight allowing users to delete their own posts was discovered today (as a result of the thread you're reading now, actually) and this capability was removed.

    What if someone starts a thread and there are no replies? Can it still be deleted? I know this is unlikely but still possible.

    Heck, if that happens to me, I just come back and talk amongst myself. (I've done it before.)

    It's OK unless you argue with yourself. :)
