What is this? Are you serious? This is very inconvenient!
The administrator has specified that you can only edit messages for 30 minutes after you have posted. This limit has expired, so you must contact the <a href="http://www.sitepoint.com/contact/">administrator</a> to make alterations on your message

Yes, we're deadly serious. You can thank spammers for this rule
Anyway, the forum will be moving to a new platform quite soon (although there's no definitive date) and things will chage quite a bit then

Actually, you don't need to contact the administrators. You can flag the post in question and ask a moderator to make the required change.

Ooh! a proprietary Sitepoint-created forum. I can't wait!
molona — 2014-05-29T13:19:25-04:00 — #5
It will be as propietary as this one
Although it uses vBulletin, this forum is so hacked that you could say that it is something else. I suspect that it is going to be the same with the new platform... the only advantage is that many of the work that we're doing may become standard in Discourse (the new platform that we will be using)

Ah, I was envisioning a one-off forum created by molona, technobear, and hawk.

Well, thank you. I'm afraid you think too high of me and believe than I am more talented than I really am... but I'm cool with that
Gotta say that all the forum staff is working hard (much harder than myself) even if some names don't visit these lands (I mean this forum GD)

That wood bee a site four soar eyes
- hey, it passed spell check
; as molona explained, blame it on SPAM
This forum has over 5 million posts and a great team of ~40 Staff (plus some helpful members that use the Flag to Report). Imagine trying to keep an eye on that many to make sure none had SPAM edited in afterwards.

Heh. If you think this is the worst decision that I've ever made, you're in for a surprise.

Those spammers are great aren't they? lol
I wish I could take a flame thrower and destroy them all. xd
