I am having the same issues... no way to edit my posts..... I have to edit a classified post because I want to add information and I do not want to reply to the thread as then I would be breaking a law!  No thread bumping within a week.  Not sure what to do here.. I may need to break the law unless we get a reply on how to edit a post.

Thanks!

-G

Thanks for alerting us to these issues. We will be looking into each issue that has been addressed on this forum, this week. We're still better than healthcare.gov .

The problem has been identified and is being discussed with Eric. It is a setting that has been changed rather than a "problem." In the meantime, please feel free to reply to your thread (bump) until the situation has been resolved.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

The HMA allows members to edit their own posts for up to 24 hours - after that, you can no longer edit your original post. Of course, you may always reply to it and update and edit as needed, but you will not be able to edit or delete the original post after the 24 hour time limit. This was done as a preventative measure against disgruntled members ruining the continuity of a thread. Meaning that a member could create a thread about a certain subject after which discussion takes place, and then the member gets hacked off about something and goes back and removes (or edits) all of the original post content thereby making the rest of the thread incomprehensible and irrelevant.

HOWEVER .. we recognize the need to edit and delete posts made at the Classifieds section upon selling an item in which case the post is no longer relevant. Therefore, that permission has now been granted at the Classifieds forum. Please be warned however, that scrupulous individuals may utilize this permission for their mischievous deeds. As always - buyer beware! 

DISCLAIMER - The HMA, its owners, and moderators are not responsible for any transaction on this site, other than those in which they are individually involved as a buyer, seller, or trader.  Transactions are solely the responsibility of the parties directly involved as buyers, sellers, or traders.  This is only a venue.  We reserve the right to remove posts without explanation.
