    Cannot edit my thread post

    I now find that I can no longer edit the first post of this thread I started:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=846920

    I continually update this thread with revised software.

    This change was brought in some months ago - unfortunately it's another issue brought about by spammers.

    Thanks, pity the database rules couldn't be changed to allow known legitimate posters to still do this.

    It should be easy to do a test of - for example - an account that has existed for more than 3 months AND has posted more than 50 posts to do this sort of things.

    That should be a fairly easy technical fix that would satisfy the anti-spam objective.

    Now this is getting silly - I cannot even edit the previous post I just made to fix a spelling error.

    You have never been able to edit posts in the RC for obvious reasons.

    The software doesn't allow for that fine grained control, it's possible that vb4 will - it's possible that we'll look at it again.

    The other side of the coin being the changes that we are making with Tutorials and Tips with regards to wiki's, the stickies in that forum explain those changes.

    I see you've created a wiki now - it might be best to close your original thread and start a discussion thread for your wiki - you can append changes to that new thread as and when.
