Don't think there is an obvious solution for this one sassie until sort form of revision history is brought in (which would be a very useful tool). I guess selling only a few items on each thread is one solution but then the forums may become clogged up by individuals selling many items across several threads...

yeah the smaller thread aren't to bad, but the long threads are a bleedin nightmare, especially if the iop listed alot as well, just thought it was worth a mention, although the feedback forum has become the hukd graveyard of late

I think the other suggestion someone had is if you have a massive list that is going to require a lot of updates is to reserve the first post for updates.

On most threads with one or a few items I don't think this is an issue though.

yes, i did see that and recommended to a member for future ref, but i wonder how long before members will do in post 2 what they where doing in post 1 - lol

Just wondered if there was any other way of allowing an edit, without it looking horrendous after a few, just thinking out load, i will hush now

I've done like Admin says: Repeated my OP into post #1, and edited that along the way.

However, like you say, Sassie... I've seen someone who has put something along the lines of "360 games for trade" in the OP, and then listed all the games in post #1. Then, it could ALL be deleted if they wish to do so...

yeah, i know, trouble is the not editing has made some threads a nightmare, im not sure which is best to not allow an edit, or allow an edit :?

I'd go back to how it was... the vast majority didn't abuse it, and like you've pointed out... if you want to get around it now, you still can...

Plus, I hate the way if you add something to the OP, it adds on your username on the line below, so it looks something like this:

new item
-hodsey77

another new item
-hodsey77

what is the point? Who else would have added something to your OP?

Just makes them even harder to read!

i really hate to say it but i think being able to edit was far better, and think the removal of op's was done by most just because thy never thought, not because they had something to hide

it makes things much clearer eg. to know what has been sold

The only full, fair solution would be to store a full revision history (like wikipedia etc), but failing this it must be a fairly trivial matter to archive the original post when it is submitted. This wouldn't be 100% foolproof but would certainly help in most of the cases where the op is deleted or substantially edited, and shouldn't be hard to implement either.

Yep I prefer the old way!

Is it not possible to just be unable to delete anything, and anything that is added is in a different colour.

I'm not sure what format this forum is, but i'm pretty sure it could be implemented in php forums by someone in the know how
