Default The option of editing our profile messages. :)

Hiya, there. Well, I'm not sure if this has been posted or not, but I think this would be really useful. I've spelled things wrong and posted unfinished messages countless times, and the ability to edit my posts would be extremey helpful. While some may argue that we could post "Oops! Misspelling!" or finish the message afterwards, sometimes that can't save certain things. For example, someone had posted their age on my profile, forgetting it wasn't allowed. While you can report them, many times peopl just don't, especially when it's a member you know very well, because may times, they do just forget. A modify button would save personal information from going out, and save me from my many crazy, horribly misspelled posts...

I'm not sure if VBulletin allows this, but it seems pretty possible, and if it is, it'd be great to see it become a new feature.

We used to have this feature, actually. Some members were abusing it, so it was taken away. I'd like to see it come back, though I don't think that's going to happen any time in the near future. It's a nice suggestion, though.

Yeah, it's unfortunate that because some people were abusing it, that it was taken away for everyone. I understand it's for the safety of the members here. I know how embarrassing it is to misspell something and want to go back and correct it! I guess you could just write another message and post a revised one. lol

It's been said before... and so has the unfortunate answer.
The ability to edit VMs was revoked some time ago by the WI staff because members were abusing the privilege by writing things and changing them before the staff could see. It might come back, though, like the ability to give rep did a while back.

I would think that would be almost impossible to moderate. Someone typing something, and then quickly changing it. It's really not safe.

I posted this recently on another thread, in different wording though- this feature was once what we thought to be our right, but some of us forgot it was only a privilege. These few ruined the possibility of VM and Pic Comment message editing, and it made it an inconvience to all of the respectful posters out here. Now we all pay the price, and some of us who thought it was just natural miss it dearly today...
