    Would like to "edit" my For Sale listing

    I was wanting to update my For Sale listing after posting it. After a short period of time the option to do so is not there.
    I presume a mod can re-enable this feature?

    Nope, they can’t open that option for you, but they can edit it for you. You can edit your posts for 12-24 hours, can’t remember which at the moment. Outside of that window you’ll need to contact a staff member to edit.

    The other option is just to post a reply with your change.

    I figured so much. Since my posting I've been monitoring other posts I've made to arrive as you mention.
    Given the forum software, the option for members to edit their posts (infinite) should not be difficult to turn on by the admin.
    I'm not stating this to "call you out", just that the option "should be" a matter of putting a check in a box at admin level.


    Such as life.
    Thanks

    It is indeed an option that can be turned on, but one we decided not to allow after several members edited older posts with junk or deleted the content after getting their feelings hurt for whatever reason making whole threads useless. This policy has been in place for many years and will not be changed.

    Plus, think about this: Say you have a For Sale thread, and now you want to lower the price. It is much better to reply to the thread stating the new price and/or info so it will return to the top of the "New Posts" so everyone will view it again. No one who might be interested in your listing will go searching for an old post to see if by chance it's been updated, so you are doing yourself a favor to reply to it.

    I see and understand your logic here, KennyD. Makes complete sense, given the type of forum.
    I can see where technical data and/or information pertaining to specifics and how-too....archived info just disappearing.

    Thanks

    I'm an administrator on one forum and a moderator on another and we only allow an edit window of maybe four to six hours on each forum for the reasons that Kenny stated, pretty common practice. I frequent a cancer forum and they don't have restrictions on editing but it's a different situation there. There's no reason to be nefarious.

    It's hard for me to think someone can get bent out of shape about a darn tractor. This is a forum, not AA. LOL

    It happens. More than you’d think.

    People read written word differently than what it was meant sometimes.

    Easily said, read, and mis-understood. That's been a problem people never could relate too, until they got a smart phone. They were a wake-up call when it comes to interpretation. Or not.
    I was admin and mod to a few forums. More like watching the grade schoolers.
    At any rate, this topic is stale.

    Thanks for the replies all!!

    The easiest way to edit a post after the fact or edit a title is to hit the button on the bottom left of said post. It is a little triangle to the right of “Thanks”. That is the “report post” button but is used for something like this also. When you hit they button you are brought to a text box where you ask what you want done. This goes directly to the moderators who will then review and take care of your request.
