What do y'all think about being able to delete posts you made at least within a day or so after posting it? And how 'bout a longer editing time? Like let's say 2 hours later you go and read your post and you're like "oh crap, did i just type that!!??" or you go back and read the post that you were replying to and you see that you misunderstood what he had said. And then you try to edit it out but it's already to late.

One variation on this which I've seen is that you can delete your post as long as your post is still the last post in the thread.
Originally posted by Dr StrangeloveYes and that would leave the forums littered with crap posts when it should have actually been deleted.

You would still only have the hour though.
edit: as below.
Originally posted by Dr StrangeloveI didn't say that it would prevent the forums from having any crap posts.
This idea will definitely prevent the forums from being "littered with crap posts".
I don't think so!
Originally posted by PsychoPawnI don't see much difference really.
You prefer to see a post with simply the text "deleted" rather than nothing?
It would be cleaner just to delete it.
What's hard to understand about that?
