I'd really like an edit button in more forums for folks who donate above a certain amount. Not all forums, of course, but the Help forums would be a great start. I'll be sitting there, spending an hour on a post and previewing the heck out of it to try and give someone assistance, and then realize after I post that I made a glaring error I can't fix without posting AGAIN (and potentially making another error). No doubt it's my own fault, but still...it would help me help other people if I could edit my posts in those Help forums.

Phade used them once in the past. I think he wants to steer clear of them.

i wanted add some stupid word too

I do not want streaming options on yours site , crap quality we have on youtube , so you want that here? We would watch videos one , sometimes 2 times , and if we put to faworite we will watch crap quality video 10 times for day and we will send links to friends who will watch that crap quality video too , and transfer will outcome that situation what is now , when we download watch orginal quality and invite friends to our house to watch anime and amv's together , we can do with all video crap version of quality so we do not want links to streamed versions ^^ , btw we do not want legaly issues , my 2 videos was blocked on youtube (crap)... And realy I like when that site is so simple and clearly , better option would be get payed profesional comment on video (you could even hire someone to do that) with option to automaticly send video on some contest ...

BTW if streamed option could help for rating videos i could change my mind .... host all videos what was sended is great idea , and they should be not deleted , even if the creator die :P , should be some system to get old videos who are unknown and forgotten to watch and get more comment or quick comment what could be showed , so something like if I want some ratting or comments I have to rate some video (and could be option for random video from all) and should be some ratio , and with that ratio should be proposed that creator videos , so all who wanna get quick commend and rate should rate many others videos ...

:up:++

Totally agree with you. I've been around here since time immemorial, and there never was an edit button, and it's really frustrating when I submit a post accidentally (and I hate double-posting, btw). I think that the forum upgrade is not complete without an "Edit Post" button... but I think this is no place to complain about that, but whatev' :lol:

or Edit-button for all - but only with time up to 15 min after adding post ... Old posts shouldn't be changed cause would be changed context , information about changed post should be showed too

Actually, now that the forums have a function where you can review and edit your posts if you need to when someone has made a post while you're still typing your post, I see less of a need for an edit button. And there is always a preview button, too.

I believe that the admins should implement an edit button in forums like the caps and problem forums, so that a member can edit larger images into links -save the mods some time- or to update information in the first post of a problem so that those who wish to help wont have to read the whole thread just to find that the problem has already been solved.

Also, for double posts, could there be a sort of "snippets" adjustment added? Instead of a double post appearing, it would simply add on to the previous post by that user as an extra section.
Everything came from nothing, therefore everything is nothing.

There's nothing to worry about.

We're not thinking of doing crap quality streaming like YouТube. We might be doing good quality streaming. Oh, and, if I'm not lazy, some really neat streaming too.
