Don't know what's going on but I can no longer edit my posts, the edit button is no longer there for me to click on. Just testing if it perhaps depends on what forum section the post is in.

EDIT: Yep, that seems to be the case. Here I CAN edit my post but in this thread (http://www.picbasic.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=14876), for example, I can not...

in general posts cannot be edited once they have been live for 20mins
After that only an admin or moderator can edit posts

Articles , where users have contributor status, can be edited anytime.

Hey Lester,

Looks like we have something going on with edits. I can edit posts as a member here, but I can't on this thread: http://www.picbasic.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=14831

and neither can dhouston. Also, I kind of liked the 60 minutes I think we used to have.

Yes, this needs to be looked into. In the AMICUS section I'm still not allowed to edit my posts - ever. Not within 20-30-60-whatever minutes - never. In this section it seems to work. Lester promised, in a PM, to look into it but he's apparently either not had the time to allocate or didn't find any problem. But there is a problem and it needs to looked into IMHO.

I (almost) always use the preview post function before submitting the post but the format of the preview is not the same as that of the "published" post (great preview) so it's easy to miss things.

There's a problem/issue when pasting code between code tags (or I'm doing something wrong) as it almost always removes blank lines so it messes up the formating and needs a lot of touch-up before it looks respectable.

I've said this to a moderator in a PM but I'll say it in public, over the course of the last 12 month or so this forum have IMHO degraded. Where did the Dilbert section come from and what does it have to do with PBP? And the chatbox... I don't want it but I guess as long as it stays out of my way I don't care but it's been popping back out on me from time to time.... And if a decision on its existence have been made can we remove the message about voting that takes up half the screen even though I've already HAVE voted? (I don't see it today so perhaps it's BEEN removed, in that case thanks!).

And why do we need the inactive user policy text doubled at the top of the screen?

No, remove the Reply with quote button and put the Edit post button back in its place - and lets get back to discussing PICs and PBP and all the cool things we can do with that. Make what's already available on the forum easier to USE instead of adding more and more "feaures" which, IMHO only makes it worse.

I've seen this in other places as well, sooner or later a forum comes to a point in time where "it" thinks it needs to be "everything" to "everyone" instead of what it was actually instantiated to be in the first place - which in this case is forum for Melabs PB and PBP compilers.

And no, I'm really trying to not sound unthankful towards Lester and Crownhill, I know he provides this service to us for free but it is the users of the forum that makes it what it is so, as a user, I just had to speak up as it has IMHO gotten a LOT worse lately.

Sorry for the rant ;-)

And, the need for a random question to determine the poster's species seems superfluous for test posts. It's a real PITA. Surely, the bots won't flood the board with test posts.

You might be right, but on the other hand, there are a lot of spammers knocking on the door. Here is a log of < 5 hours time, and all who attempted to register using a known spammer email address, or IP. In this period, no one registered successfully, but other times they do get through. If nothing else, they are pretty busy. Hence the need for some additional security measures. Yeah, bummer.

You might be right, but on the other hand, there are a lot of spammers knocking on the door.Had the danged EDIT been working I would have changed test to preview - why is the random question necessary for previews? :confused: At the very least, it could retain the question/answer for the actual submission.

Looks like we have something going on with edits.This may point to the problem. From the bottom of the Amicus18 section...
5568
From the bottom of the General section...
5569
I haven't checked all sections but General and Ethernet are OK. There must be a configuration item that needs to be reset in the affected section.
