It was suggested to me that I should ask about it here as this is the appropriate forum for that kind of stuff. So, first excuse the previous breach of etiquette, I could have thought about it.
Now, could someone please explain to me why is edtiting of posts disabled in the Forge forums? I 'm a sloppy poster and as much as this is my fault, an edit function would have made most of my posts a good deal more readable.
Context from the wayback machine:
Editing posts (http://www.indie-rpgs.com/forum/index.php?topic=9411.0)
and more current (when the forge moved to a new forum software):
Editing posts turned off? (http://www.indie-rpgs.com/forum/index.php?topic=16170.0)
Hope that helps.
The forge works very hard to encourage a "think first, post later" approach. No edit button is part of that. If you muck it up the first time, you've gotta live with it more-or-less forever. It encourages people not to muck things up the second time.
Yes, I figured it was that way.
Well, if it's the rules of the game, it's the rules of the game. I 'll be more careful to edit everyghint offline before I post.
But of course, nothing is ever perfectly written. If I was a writer, I 'd be one of those who call the publisher with corrections even as the book is going to the printer...
Hey, you and me both! As I'm proving with a book this very instant, in fact.
Anyway, James has spoken rightly and provided the right links, so I think all is well. Remember too that everyone knows the editing is turned off, and therefore if you really need to fix a blunder, just post again and no one will think the worse of you. Or if it has to do with formatting like screwing up a bold or quote or whatever, just private-message me and I'll edit it for you.
