    Can one edit thread titles?

    Hi there. Is it possible to edit thread titles that one has started (I want to work on consistency and immediate identification for some news threads)? Thanks.

    What is the reason why no one is allowed to edit their posts?

    MJost,

    Some users on the Internet have a tendency to revisit old messages they had written and (for numerous reasons) significantly altering them. This causes a conversational dysjunction in the following posts as they no longer "flow" with the content of the original/early messages.

    As a trade-off between allowing users the chance to correct/update existing posts and maintaining thread coherency, we've implemented a 24 hour editing window.

    It is worth stating some form of post editing restriction is standard practice on many Internet discussion boards.

    Thanks for the explanation.

    As one poster stated and I guess I have to bow and agree with overall, that there really is no need to allow mid thread edits, they serve no purpose unless you're obsessive compulsive and have to return to them 2 years later.

    GUILTY!

    Edit: I also now thought about Spammers posting once and days, weeks, ect later editing and posting spam links.....
