Is dit so dat jy jou eie post nie meer kan edit nie ná 'n paar dae/weke?
Bv 'n tripreport waar jy 'n naam of detail wil opdateer/byvoeg

Would be nice if Admins could bring that "edit" functionality back.
Two weeks ago I could still edit older posts, but now it seems that after about 3 days your posts get locked.

Is there any particular reason why this has been implemented ..... or is it just a system glitch??

Agree 100% with @Noneking that the lack of this functionality will be an issue in the "For Sale" threads.

Thanks Grunter, now we know the reason.
I fully understand the need for funding. We at WD forum are very spoilt with a well-functioning free site.

However, I have some questions regarding the benefits. Maybe some Administrator can enlighten us:

Wild Dog Forum Supporting Membership Benefits
  • Access to active private forums for Supporting Members only.
    • Personally I did not know this exists, I do not need it
  • Recognition of your Supporting Member status
    • I do not need this
  • The ability to post in Classifieds without waiting
    • I do not find this time lag a problem. Is it now different from previous?
  • The ability to turn off sponsor advertisements.
    • This would be great, but WD will loose some subscription by advertisers
  • Longer self editing time.
    • This is an issue to me. Often long after posting I find errors or missing pictures in my trip reports, then I would like to fix it.
  • Unlimited private message space.
    • Is this now less than before? I never had a problem here
  • Unlimited file attachment space.
    • Is this now less than before? I never had a problem here
  • Unlimited gallery space.
    • Is this now less than before? I never had a problem here
  • The satisfaction that you are supporting Wild Dog Forum's future and it's role within the adventure riding as a library of knowledge and community.
    • Very valid point. For this reason I would be prepared to subscribe at a nominal fee. (What is nominal? To me something like R20/month, or R100 per year or occasional R30 once-off to edit an old posting)

Some of my RRs have no photos after swop over. I will now need to re-insert pics but can't edit posts.
Please help?

Ek sien dit as 'n "vrywillige" Bydrae (for now at least).
En daar IS kostes , ek verstaan 200%
Anyway - het nie eens hiervan geweet nie, thanks for the heads-up. Its the very VERY VERY least that I can do, advertising Cars etc etc in here.
And soing some occasional spamming:LOL:
Mods julle kan net my "Badge" afhaal as dit kan, ek wil nie rerig een he nie

Edit verdwyn ná net 15 minute.
Dit is heeltemaal te gou wanneer mens 'n RR laai.
Hoe maak ek wanneer ek ná 'n uur die RR report check of 'n dag later weer lees en fout sien met die fotos of teks en 'n dit wil regmaak?

Admin, gee raad/leiding asb....
