Title: Modifying posts
Post by: namazu on June 26, 2019, 04:40:18 PM
I went to modify a post I made about a minute ago, and I don't see the "modify" option.

Should it be there?  (And if so, for how long, for future reference?)

Thanks!

EDIT: Oddly, I do see it here.  Is it only enabled in certain subfora?  Or will it vanish in a few seconds, too?

EDIT2: Looks like maybe it's unavailable in the Help & Questions subforum (which is, as I understand it, available to non-member guests as well) but available everywhere else.  Yes?

Yup!

I can modify the post for you, though, if you want.

No need -- it was really just an aside.  (New/old member with a chord-moniker, you have good taste in music!)

Thanks for confirming that I'm not imagining things, though!

Shrug. I pasted it in for you. There's not a ton of moderating going on at the moment, so no task is too trivial!

Oh. That was a simplified version of what I'd actually wanted to say.  :)   No matter.  Still true!  Thanks, anyway!

Should we recruit more spammers to give you something to do?

Do members of Parasaurolophus wear hats?  Or would they interfere with your thermoregulation/appearance/sound system?

I'm curious what this would look like.  I've seen your posts on the old fora spreading the word for new members.  What's your recruitment message for new spammers?

To be honest, I hadn't thought that through, but I was hoping that Baba-ji might have a spell to drive them here.

I feel certain that just chatting up these fora on FB would do wonders for the spammer population.  Still, let's not, maybe?

But...but...those posts are already gone and I have no means to get another set of spells.
