    Where do you get that?...because there are those who dare disagree with your position? We already had change.

    1) You CAN edit.
    2) We keep talking about it, hence you're wrong.
    3) No, WE don't.

    Based on a difference of opinion, we're apes? Many have given their 2¢. You insist on labeling folks in disagreement as backwards-thinking. What's so hard about replying to a post to update it? Why are you so intent on erasing past posts? 30 mins gives your forward-thinking brain time to fix any issues you might have. Write, check, post. Read post, leave as-is, or edit.

    I don't advocate unlimited editing. 24 hours may be too long a period.
    In cases where someone has come back with more info or photos for a post, it appears to be not too much after the 30 minute window closes. I would guesstimate a window of up to 3 hours would be sufficient.

    The first rule of Vintage Leather Jackets is: You do not talk about changing the Editing Policy.

    The second rule of Vintage Leather Jackets is: You do not talk about changing the Editing Policy

    Third rule of Vintage Leather Jackets: If someone yells stop change the Editing Policy, the discussion is over.

    Fourth rule: only 30 minnutes Editing is allowed.
    Fifth rule: one Edit at a time, fellas. Its too confusing for us to take anymore in.
    Sixth rule: no shirts, no shoes. Only Jackets and no talk about Editing
    Seventh rule: Editing fights (sorry discussions) will go on as long as they have to but we will not change the policy.
    And the eighth and final rule: if this is your first posting at Vintage Leather Jackets, you have to say editing for only 30 minutes is a good policy.

    Without pain, without sacrifice, we would have nothing

    I think we should make a change.
    New rule:
    A member can only repeat themselves..or reconfigure the same ole same ole..for no more than one other post. Otherwise..only one repeat. No matter how convinced they are that those who fail to agree must read it again..and again. If a second repeat is posted..it will be deleted within 30 minutes. :lol:

    No, if you repeat the same ol' same ol' more than once, you lose -5 minutes of editing time for the year. You start at 30 and go down to no editing. Pon Raul, 2012! :lol:

    Exactly the point
    This is not about unlimited editing time to start correcting posts and causing confusion, its about allowing members to have the facilty to adapt properly posts if required.

    Its about allowing what most other forums offer without any difficulties whatsover.

    Its just asking for an element of trust and not to be tarred with the same brush as a few ex members who caused problems in the past on this Forum.

    Some members may be happy with a 30 minutes timeslot.
    Well if that member is happy with that then keep working to that.

    If other members want more time then let them use that time frame.
    Just because its there and if it causes some members to much hassle/ confusion then don't use it.
    You don't have to !!

    Why don't you just PM Bill French :idea: ...and see what he thinks? He knows the past..and exactly what happened with editing..and the mostly self moderation that we once enjoyed...and just why the owner and mods felt themselves pressed to make the changes they did. 'We can do nothing on this end'..except keep this thread going untill hell freezes over. A few so dissatisfied..and others really not at all.

    Good point although I thought the OP and his post was highlighting this as a discussion point.
    Hopefully the Moderators have not been asleep and have been reading this and will make a decision or not !

    Unlike most of the Forum members who have been asleep.
    Bored senseless by meaningless banter..

    Well lets close the thread and get back to talking jackets jackets and more jackets.

    You realise that Bill already made a decision, and we already discussed it ... back in November 2010?
