Totally agree with you about this, perhaps users should be able to append posts (for price drops, sales etc) like they used to be able to but not edit out all the original content. Only problem is it can be confusing what has been sold in multiple-item sales.

Best solution would be to allow edits but keep a revision history like wikipedia, although this is probably too much work.

(5) Editing of original posts could cause your thread to be closed or deleted, at the discretion of Admin or Moderators.


Maybe that needs a ban thing added too.

In fact thinking about it, after it is posted the only person who should be able to change the first post should be a mod for a number of reasons, not only those above. If the seller want anything changed they would have to PM a mod to do it.


Only problem with that is if they have say 10 items for sale and want to add SOLD after each one as and when they sell.

Well this new FS forum mod will have some work to do then :)

In all seriousness, I understand what you are saying Shengis, but surely the preservation of information is the important factor here. Currently it leaves itself open for all kinds of potential abuse.

^^^^^ i reckon you should go for the position

Going to fix this guys as it's important the first post isn't amended to change the facts of a story.

Will a seller now need to request that the first post be amended by a Moderator if items have been sold along the course of the thread? It is typical to see sellers amend to reflect a drop in expectations on price, or just to update interested parties with what has been sold & to whom.

Perhaps some form of original thread comment history linked from the most recent revision, so that an update does not replace the previous iteration, but an audit trail is recorded instead.

The way it used to work - you could add text to the bottom of a first post, and the original text stayed there. I think that worked well.

An extension to this could be that a member with a certain number of positive feedbacks would be allowed to edit, but not new members (with zero or very few feedback points). This would keep the established members happy, and those who have just joined would not know any different.

Just a thought...

Another reason to have a FS/FT template in the first post that is uneditable ?

Just making the first post uneditable will only push those with an intent to scam into posts 2/3/4........

(not sure if uneditable is a word, but you know what I mean :) )
#12
Whilst this is still possible can the FS rules be changed to make clear this is unacceptable (at the moment it suggests that the worst that will happen is the thread will be closed which kind of defeats the point)
#13
Bump - any update?

It really should be considered a serious offence, for example whats for sale here and here?

What is stopping that trader from repeatedly creating a thread, then deleting the posts and submitting a new one?
#14
I totally agrre on this issue. i think it will cause a major problem soon if its not sorted
banned#15
Something needs sorting, the removal of first posts is getting worse, in one way i can see why they are doing it as people do not read the entire thread, sticking sold in the title doesnt seem to stop people continually posting to ask if its sold:? Mind maybe thats the time OP's should just ignore the posts
#16
Why has nothing been done yet? Its been a week now since admin said something would be done, people are beginning to take the p now....
#17
I think you guys are under the impression that changes don't take very long to knock up. If features were added willy nilly the site would be down most of time than up. Web development takes a lot of time, especially when working on a live site where data cannot be lost. (still waiting for the post preview tho hint, hint :p).
I bet the todo list is about a mile long by now.

A little harsh, but maybe take down FS/FT until a solution is ready?
#18
I'm honestly not, I'm pretty experienced with software/web development. I just think that when a loophole is opened such as this the change really should be expedited, and if not they could at very least change the rules to make it clear it is a serious offence (as I suggested above). A change to the FS rules would take a matter of seconds.

This is another example - looks a very dodgy thread aswell with what looks like dealing off the boards :-(
