What?
« on: May 06, 2009, 09:39:19 AM »
I can modify other people posts?  :o Am i a moderator or something?

Well i noticed this yesterday while editing one of my posts, i found every other post by another person was also editable. I tried it out, and it allowed me to modify the other persons' post (I didnt change it at all though) is this some kind of feature that everyone can use to correct other peoples spelling or something?  :P Or am i a moderator and just was not told about it?

Thanks.

If you create a topic, you are able to exert a few moderator features on your posts as well as others'.

It's a nice feature that won't be done away with until it's abused.  ;)

That said, there will always be that one guy that joins up one day and likes to wield power for the sake of wielding power.  ::)
I, for one, hope this is much, much more than a reconnaissance mission.

I don't think modifying someone else's post was intended to be on the list of user-mod powers. Thanks for reporting this.

Oh, wow, you're right. You can modify other people's posts. I knew you could modify and lock topics you created, but I didn't realize that. Dag, yo.  ::)
