[quote] I’ve seen many forums where someone got angry and erased all of its posts Huh Most of the time because of a big disagreement with other members.
Other times, users have edited their “first” posts only to hide a mistake they’ve made and they don’t want to admit it. That’s awhy sometimes on forums, when I feel that the topic could go in this direction, I quote the original post, so that its owner can still delete/edit it but my copy will keep the original content.
“Reason for edit” is not enough, though useful. Don’t think that all people on forums are kind enough to put “edited because of a mistake in my code” Wink And btw, if the following posts were talking about this mistake, you can easily imagine that the whole topic would have no sense if the mistake is gone Wink
Although I agree with all of those points, I really don’t want to have a situation where there is a critical bug in some code that gets passed around just because the user can’t edit their post.
