Hey All,

We meant to announce a change in the post editing feature sooner, but this is the first chance that we're getting. We hate to penalize everyone for the actions of a few, but unfortunately, the forum software does not allow us to implement this on a user by user basis.

Due to some users going back and destroying threads when they do not like the way they are turning out by deleting or editing their posts so that there is no content in them, we have implemented a 24 hr limitation on editing posts. After 24 hours, the cement is dry and the post will be there in perpetuity.

If you feel you NEED to have a post edited after the 24 hour grace period has expired, please feel free to contact a Mod or Admin with a link to the post as well as what you would like changed and we will be happy to do so for you.

To clarify for everyone, post editing settings are currently as follows:


Edit Thread Title: 5 Minutes
Add a Poll to a thread: 30 Minutes
Edit Posts: 24 Hours


We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but feel the content on AB will be better served by implementing this change.

Thanks,

The AB Team
