It seems posts can only be edited within a certain time limit of them being posted, why is this?
It is annoying, especially when certain diary mods completely change what you wrote in your post (what I wrote broke no rules, his reason for changing it being 'my diary') and you can't change it back.
So yeah I think this feature should be changed what does everyone else think?

I think it was because I mod of the diary, edited it
And its my diary, and I can do whatever the fuck I want with it

Yes I know it was you that edited it, and I know it was your diary. However no, you cannot 'do whatever the fuck you want with it' you can do what the owners of this site allow you and only that. Whether you mod the diary or not, you changed what I wrote so it appears I had said things I didn't. Surely that cannot be allowed?
Anyway that was only a side thought, the question behind this thread is why the time limit on edits?

I'm guessing because a mod (me) changed it

No Miguel, you can't do that. That's actual a horrible thing to do. If you feel offended, or that it is really rude you should edit the whole post or delete it, then repost it.

ok i dont like this whole editing post thing. editing posts should only be left to mods. because if you go about editing someones post like that you change what they are saying and that just undermines them totally.

if you have a problem with a post in your diary delete it or report.

the fact that there was no problem with it makes it so much worse. your abusing the fact that you can edit peoples post in your diary.

Thank you Alex and Diego for your support.
Miguel, take a lesson from this.
Edit: Miguel just saw that post, if you were referencing to Alex's edit, that is completely different. Pinkcar was just plainly advertising his diary, technically thats spam. Alex had every right to edit that.

Btw, I'm just looking what I can do defend myself... I've seen it done, so why couldn't I do it too?

maybe we should get rid of diary owners being able to edit posts. then we wont have this problem again.

No, I think we should allow it, but if there is another incident like this than we will take away the diary. It should apply to everyone. And there are some places to edit peoples posts, use your judgement.

Maybe... do whatever you want with my diary then, other than deleting it... you can change it whatever you want as long as I'm a mod of it... you can take out the editing post thing if you want... or trust me I won't do it anymore (I promise), and just ignore people...
But if you just don't trust me or just want to do it, go ahead, change the posting editing in my diary to prevent further fighting/problems

ok let me take this time to point out that the Moderators for the diaries are the Global Moderators and Administrators. anyone else is a Diary Owner. to be honest i am really not seeing the point of having the Diary Owners being able to edit other peoples posts. if theres a problem with the post it can be deleted.

this is the second time we have had a problem with a Diary Owner editing someones posts.

Your permission isn't needed to do anything with your diary, nobody on here seems to understand that you can only do what you can, because the site owner says you can. Whether it is 'your diary' or not, if an admin chooses to delete it, they can with or without your permission. So I wouldn't tell admins what they can and can't do.
I think the diary mod edit feature should be disabled, it is unnecessary and not all diary mods are trusted to use it properly as we can see.

I really didn't make bad use of my diary for changing a couple of post...
Here in VT I had the luck to have a diary, and I'll still have it... I understand that they can delete my diary, but really... if you think about it, it wouldn't be fair because of a couple of post I edited
