This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Disabling editing of posts after a certain time
« on: September 14, 2020, 08:16:04 PM »
Is there a way to turn off the ability of a user to edit or delete their post after a specific time, say a day, or a week?


I'm getting sick of finding older threads, where someone got a bug up their ass, and deleted stuff months or years later, rendering the entire conversation useless.

I set it for a week, but we'll see if it works.
