umm...me thinks this is a bad idea.
Why? Other forums have a permanent edit function and its not like they all crash and burn.
I just don't see it going well. If the OP want's to add something to their post, simply post again.

But that's just my opinion.

It's definitely something that could be abused, just like any other feature on this forum, but it could definitely be helpful like in this case of lalyil's thread.

Like chee said, OPs can edit on other forums and they're fully functional. Plus it'd improve threads like the actor/director challenge threads and a lot of forum fun threads. I see no reason not to.

Actually, to lessen the potential abuse, we could give that ability only to members with higher post counts.

Regardless, it's certainly a really helpful feature.

This would also be useful for Braked's TDKR Reviews thread.

What would that do?

I just don't get what kind of abuse there would be.

Someone posts something. Decides a year later that he wants to change it to "pig farts" and nobody sees it cause it was a year ago?

I wonder if T&A can make your posts permanently 6666.
