Predictions about effects of new feature


Hello fellow A'goners. Noticed the new nifty "Edit my post" function that just appeared? What do you think the ramifications of this will be in The Forum? Up to now, posting here has been like chiselling out words in stone tablets. Your inspirations from the mountain-top were eternal (unless deleted from the archives). Now it seems tabula rasa is possible. Will A'goners be back-pedalling, airbrushing and reinventing history -- behaviour unbefitting of the High End --... or be real men (and women), sticking to their guns even when the smoke gets in their eyes?

When someone posts after you, the option goes away.
This function has been around for a long time - I guess you just didn't notice it. But as Albert notes, the chisled stone remains eternal for everyone but the last word. Many's the time I decided a little editing after posting was in order, only to have my ammendments rejected upon clicking submit because another member had me beat on the draw...
True, true...
Alas, I stand corrected: Ecclesiastes was right; there is nothing new under the sun, the tablets are here to stay...
You probably didn't notice the feature because it only appears when you are logged on the site, not just when "visiting" the site.
