      Why didn't you just edit your post with the new info??

        actually, the edit button is still gone. It only shows up on this thread.

          It's been tweaked a little. It was set that posted could be edited at any point in the future but now they become uneditable after a couple days. That is to prevent messages to be edited to the point where the rest of the thread is out of context.

            That's not such a good idea.
            I have a 1-month old program I constantly keep on updating.
            All of the updates and fixes are on the first post (to keep people away from listing through the thread).

            With this feature enabled, my only solution would be start a new thread with every release. (Or ask for my own subforum ).

              Wow, didn't know you could do that. Sounds like a pretty good idea except for cases where the first post is continually updated for things like software version updates or in the classifieds with price changes. Can that option be changed to allow the first post in a thread to always be editable?

                humm, should that kind of be left up to the thread author?
                What about in the software forms etc where typically the first post is where all the updates are located. Thats actually what im trying to edit, the first post with updated info on the latest verion of my skin.

                    Could you also take a look at this also.

                      Yeh, I'm in the same boat at the moment...I make a bit of software on here that gets updated every couple of days...and I use the front page to reflect all the changes and updates, saves me making needless new posts and threads - plus the fact its near impossible to find the info on the new download if its not on the first page.

                      Any idea when this is going to be restored back to normal, its a bit of a pig there is only 1440 minutes to edit a post.

                      Also (Mods), now I have your attention too, could you change my thread title from "Laptop Half Arsed Control System" to "ShutControl - Software Shutdown Controller for Laptops". On this thread.

                      Thanks

                      Edit: Please Bring Edit Back!, I've since made 2 updates to my software since Edit has been removed, I'm getting a lot of emails from people complaining about bugs which are fixed in later versions - but according to Post #1 it is the latest version!

                        I keep my threads organized when they relate to SKIN releases, Software releases, etc., and simply used to edit the first post.

                        Not being able to edit my first post is bringing me all sorts of troubles and headaches. Like now I have people asking me things like 'whay is the new version link down?'?

                        If I lose the ability to simply update first post, people won't be able to quickly find the most recent link and info etc. BRING THE EDIT POST BACK!!!!

                            here's another thing to consider.
                            Since the reason for this feature being turned off
                            "is to prevent messages to be edited to the point where the rest of the thread is out of context".
                            Dosent this also make it so entire threads are useless because over time none of the linked information will likely be available anymore? Which seems to be a bigger issue than context. Once a thread reaches a certain size, most of the post in the middle rarely get read, i for one on larger threads will only read the first few post and last few post and only dig deeper if i have to.

                            i hope im wrong in thinking this feature maybe wont be turned back on?
