  1. Has the silent edit been changed again?



    Seems like the notification appears at the bottom of the message again. OK. Didn't happen on this message but it did happen in the episode thread today.

    Hey Jim @J Bar - thanks for the suggestions.

    I've implemented a few of these things - notably, I've added silent editing to your accounts and also the ability to hide your own content.  

    See how you go, and we'll look back in a few weeks and see if it's working

    Hi Sal @Hawker.

    Just noticed the silent edit has been added, when I made a couple of corrections to my post. It works brilliantly. 

    It's a great feature. Thanks heaps.

    Cheers, Jim.

  3. @Hawker Hi Sal.

    Sorry I didn't see your response here earlier.

    I understand the logic of why it's been moved, and due to how the post controls are linked into it (it's also where the moderator privileges sit), it's impossible to extricate.

    I'm a member of another similar site Media Spy. They have the Edit option at the bottom, next to the Quote button, which is why it causes so much confusion for me. I'm starting to get used it on this site now, so while I'm still accidentally clicking on the Quote button when I mean to Edit, at least I'm not accidentally posting them any more.

    ...but would it help if I gave members permissions to hide your own content?  Then at least you could 'get rid' of the mistake so the rest of the board can't see it, and the Staff can sweep the posts away when they log on?  

    Yes this could be good. One thing Media Spy does well is that it has a rubbish bin icon so you can delete a post without anyone seeing it. You also have grace period of a few minutes to restore that post, if you accidentally delete something.

    The other good feature is that you can Edit your own post without it being revealed immediately at the bottom of your post. You have about three minutes after it has been posted to make any quick changes, so spelling corrections can be made and it isn't shown as an edited post.

  4. There's another small issue that I've been struggling with, Sal @Hawker.

    The Edit option was at the bottom of the post next to Quote. It has now moved to a drop down menu in More Options top right (...).

    I keep hitting the Quote button and making the changes, then saving it. So I end up with a second post and then I can't delete it. I've noticed a few other people are doing the same thing and we're seeing double posts until a moderator deletes it.

    I'm sure we'll eventually get used to it but to save on errors, any chance we can have the Edit feature restored to the bottom of a post?

  5. I like the fresh new look of the upgrade on my laptop.

    It just looks a bit strange on my Android phone having the avatars and name at the top middle of each post, with a lot of space around it. I guess I'll get used it.
