We should be able to delete but editing will cause more problems than it will solve. People will abuse it to troll all the time and evade being reprimanded. There would be nothing stopping a troll from writing "Fuck you, feminist cunt" and let you respond to it, but then edit in to something else just so mods and admins would not find out.
I think you should have like a 5 min edit period, So genuine typos or mistakes can be corrected. I don't think you should be able to actually delete anything since people will just troll up a storm then delete their post or edit it.
Yes, that option should be given to all members but with a time limit of course. Say at least 45 minutes from the time they have posted their question, after that the delete feature/button should disappear.
No. Never. That gives green light for haters who can then go back and change their posts to look good and not get them deleted. If you're discussing with someone and you're getting fucked by their arguments, you can just go back and say "oh, but I didn't say that", when you actually did.
Sure, not everyone will use that feature in a negative way, but many will. We already deal with many individuals on here that are all but grown ups, we don't need to give them more reasons to act like kids.
no because i could call someone very ugly things. then they would call me very ugly things back, and then i would go delete what i said to them in the first place or change it. then it would seem like they attacked me, but in reality i would have attacked them in the first place.
U know i dont like to suggest anything because any change comes with a crazy idea how to force people to choose mose helpful shit.. I can see in the future they would say pay to ask or choose best helpful shit... God im tired of being told what to do
I think the ability to edit should be available for a very limited period of time after the post. The time it takes to read it after posting and correct any misspellings but not long enough as to manipulate the answer after responses.
I think as far as editing, yes. You should be able to edit your posts. Deleting I feel should be only for questions and even then there's technically ways to make the question not yours anymore anyway.
I mean, I would love to be able to edit my posts if need be. However, that would allow trolls to change or delete what they have posted and not get flagged for abusing the rules of the site as often potentially.
Yes as long as there is a indicator that shows that the post was edited and has a time stamp
As long as the original post stays where it can be looked at. Too many jackassss would change their question to make it look like others agree with their opinion. But it'd be nice to go back and fix autocorrects and such!
