Original Posts that serve as Thread Summary: Editing privs on a case-by-case basis?

Unread postby firefoxed » Tue, 28 Nov 2017, 06:02

Hello @ wonderful mod team,

Post editing is restricted to a couple hours -- I understand the reasons.

In some cases, users make posts with the intention of editing the first post over time to incorporate and summarize the information provided by others in the thread discussion. In such cases, the thread can be more useful to readers if the author is allowed to edit the original post to keep the information up-to-date.

In these situations, can we request editing privs for that particular thread -- knowing that there is no guarantee it will be granted?

In my case, I would love to be able to maintain and improve this thread in order to make it a useful resource for the community going forward:
How to Migrate from Firefox to Pale Moon for Beginners and Old Hands

Thanks in advance for considering it! :coffee:

Peace,
firefoxed

Unfortunately, phpBB doesn't allow per-post permissions to be set. The only way this is possible is if the user is question is given blanket permission to always edit posts (any post).
