If you harass other users, like he did @beaker you will get banned.
If you are an asshole, fuck off, you’re getting banned.
This is place for positivity and building each other up. If you notice negativity for the sake of being an ass, flag it so the staff (there’s only 2 of us, and really it’s primarily just @sidco) can deal with it
Default was 86400 minutes (60 days), now 2880 minutes (2 days) to edit or delete a post.
Unfortunately the mass deletions resulted in what looked like spam, confusing and broken conversations.
Everything you put on this site and the internet is public and backed up, from live RSS feeds (+1 to our RSS users :)) to my daily backups and live-mirror which will be public soon. This makes it more difficult to ‘take back’ a post when I’m going to provide it for the world X other ways. The older (and more involved) a post is, the bigger the mess post deletion. As of now no major edits happen after 1 day, so 2 days is more than enough and is manageable from this end.
If one really really wanted their name off of the live sites I would be open to changing the author of their posts to ‘anonymous’.
FYI, we have a wiki feature which allows edits for things like SOPs that require modification after 2 days.
I will always make an exception for Personally identifiable information - The public backups will never include IPs or the likes, If you accidentally post a picture with your address in it, I’d dig it out for ya but the internet (see RSS above) still knows.
@Future, @sidco, and other forum members, I am having trouble with the advanced tutorial session… LOL seriously, trying to delete a post and I feel like an idiot but I cannot figure it out? Has this feature been removed or changed. Tried the show more … icon and no trash can? Please help a tech-challenged guy out LOL
yeah we removed the ability to delete posts, since it was causing major confusion. Instead we ask you flag your post for removal. @KnowledgeSeth isn’t aware we changed our settings and I am not about to fork discourse to tell him how we run things around here.
