I feel quite stupid posting this, but I checked the board FAQ and there was nothing about it there.
SO: I seem to have lost the edit button on all but one or two of my posts. Do posts lock after a certain period of time?
while trying to fix some annoying spelling errors.
If someone comments on them, then they get locked.
Huh. The more you know. Maybe that could be added to the FAQ?
I'll try to fix this this offseason.
I kinda like it, personally. Keeps people accountable.
I don't think it needs fixing. It is exactly how I would want board posting to work on my site if I had one.
It'd be cool if there could be an option to "append" additional lines to the end of a post, without being able to change the original text. That would keep people accountable while allowing them to go back and clarify stuff in their original message.
Too bad I don't know of any board that has such an option to explain better.
