I accidentally sent some posts to threads before completing editing of the posts, and I just reread a post that I wrote that sounded like something I didn't mean when I originally wrote it...I would like to make a suggestion of an "edit" button on posts:).

It would destroy forum mafia. No can do.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

1. People could try to cover up site rule violations
2. People would ruin forum mafia games by covering up slips in their play

Just click the reply button and edit it there, or add thoughts into the end of the post.

Fix'd. (Not deliberate, but a good example anyway)

There could always be an option to show what the original comment was.

Or it could just not apply to the games forum. That would probably be easier.

Wow, that's actually a great point... I wonder if it'd be possible to allow the edit option in other threads, while keeping it blocked for the "games" section.

... Only if you looked at mafia as something that needed to be destroyed in the first place.
