Here's a suggestion! Either make the arcade banner slightly shorter, or have the option to disable it (and put a normal link somewhere). Three times I tried to click the thread with the latest post and three times I went to the arcade instead. Darn macbook trackpad.

That arcade thing in the corner is really annoying and ugly. Isn't there another way to force people to go there?

Why don't we make it so that you can edit a post after someone posts after it, but make the little E green or something and/or display the time it was edited (if it was edited after a post was made.)

It used to be to prevent abuse, like people pretending that they didn't say something. It's not so bad now. Besides, most forums have that "Edited 5 mins ago" feature. I like it as it is, because it prevents a lot of annoyingness, but I'm not opposed to changing it.

I think that 4 word limit should go, though. Maybe change it to a 4 letter limit so people don't impulsively reply with "yes", "no", "". Sometimes all you want to do is post an URL, and most people figure how to get past the limit anyway.

I think the post editing system should stay as it is. If there's something you so desperately want to remove, you can always PM an admin. Like Muz said, it prevents annoyingness. People would start quoting all the time so that there'd be no chance for others to remove what they said later.

Probably makes people think twice before posting too, which is good.

Did you read my whole post? A blue E would show that you edited it before anyone replied. Green shows you edited after a reply. If somethings missing and theres a green E, it's probably because you edited it away. That's why the time and stuff would be there too, so you can check the last edit against any replies who can accuse you of not saying something.

Or better yet, why can't you just let the person who made a post, edit his or her initial post, so that we can post updates on something without replies. Mainly because if we have a thread and the original post is obsolete, people are probably not going to fish through the thread to try to find the most recent information. They could, but they wont.

Maybe edits to old posts get queued for admin approval or something?

Last thing we need is another thing for the admins to need to approve of. I say we just let people edit their posts, but under a confined set of rules to avoid abuse. I mean seriously, every other board out there lets you do it. Why are we openly reporting that we edited a post BEFORE anyone replies to it (no one cares), instead of after we edit it (when people might actually care).

Yea, admin approval of edits would be silly.

The majority of edits would likely be typo or misinformation correction and not deceptive manipulation. And you know, nothing says that a new editing system would have to be permanent! So perhaps it should/could be changed.

I'd like to know what Club, Flava, and Rikus think about it.

I'm registered to about 5-6 forums at the moment - and people can edit their posts whenevever, and a time is displayed saying when they edited it. I think it'd work the same here. Though I'm not sure how long it'd take to implement due to the current database structure of TDC.

Thank you and OMC, Flava, for at least acknowledging that the edit system is silly.

I've got rid of the banner and put a link in the navigation bar - hope that's better
