I totally agree with Shal. I am a machine embroiderer and sewer and belong
to quite a lot groups pertaining to those subjects. I can see that causing
problems big time. We've had enough problems with Neo, let's try to keep
this as easy and clean as possible for the owners and moderators.

Subject: Re: [beta] Edit time out for posts


If I am reading this correctly and posts on IO may be edited, this is
a revolutionary and important development. I have stopped linking to
posts as much as they are carved in stone.
I have the opposite reaction: I don't like the fact that posts can be
edited. An archive that can be edited isn't an archive, it is a chalkboard.

In a technical help group editing may be as much advantage as disadvantage,
but in discussion groups I see too much potential for mischief, unless the
message posts have wiki-like features for knowing who edited them and what
changes were made.

Now in IO it would seem one can just go into the post and change or
delete the links. This is truely wonderful and will help me greatly.
In my own opinion that's what a wiki is for.
