Why am I not able to edit my posts?

Posted 03 March 2014 - 08:32 PM

Greetings :winkiss:

Is there really no edit button on dreamincode.net/forums/index or I am not able to edit my posts because the amount of my posts are below some certain number?

Or do I need glasses? :blush:

Thank you.

There is a minimum post count before you receive editing permissions.

To clarify, the reason we implemented such is that some unscrupulous people would post a question, get their answers, then edit their post to clear it of contents, rendering the answers somewhat pointless for online archive purposes. This is usually done by students worrying about getting caught cheating. To reduce this sort of abuse, we do not allow "new" users to edit their posts. If you have additional information to share, feel free to post a reply (if you reply within a certain short timespan, five minutes I think) your new post will be appended to your last post, assuming nobody has posted in between you.

If you accidentally included personal or private information in your post (passwords, IP addresses, hostnames, etc...), please report it and/or PM a moderator/admin, and let us know what you think should be removed and why.

Hope this is helpful.
