Do you want the capability to change own messages on the forum (without time restrictions)?[ 8 votes ]
1. Yes 4 / 50%
2. No 4 / 50%


As many have noticed, it is not possible to change own messages on the forum after some period of time (2 hours, if I'm right).
In my opinion, this is ok, in the "ideal world", where message writer already know what (s)he writes with prediction on the future changes.
But, also in my opinion, this is not ok, in the real (actually, virtual) world, where message writer wanted to change the message after some period of time, e.g. replace/update/delete unneeded files, add/remove/organize information, fix spelling errors, etc.

Before migration, it was possible to change own messages.
This is particularly useful for Bazaar section on the forum, where topic writer could update first message of the topic with new version of packages (also, this saved forum space in some case).

I suggest to return such capability to the users of the forum, may be, for concrete sections on the forum (Bazaar, among others).

What do you think?

Edit: Fixed links.
