moderated Re: Option to expire message editing capability after a short time #suggestion

My suggestion was to provide the limited editing window as another option at the discretion of the group owner, so you won’t lose the existing two options.

My group has thousands of users and many use the archives for searching for information, suggestions and previously discussed ideas. Having correct information is more important here than real time communications.

It changes history rather than amending it (via replys to correct) and leaving a trail, and produces different messages via email and those who later look at the web site. Also, immediate emails are often important in groups I moderate.
Like it is is how I like it.
Consider Better, not Bigger. So many advantages. Just ask. USA adds a Chicago to our overpop each year.

It wouldn't do anything for those using email.
It's true that it would be most useful for web posts. But it would certainly be possible to do via email as well, if truly desired (which, granted, it probably is not).

Messages are the sole opinion of the author, especially the fishy ones.
