This is interesting. First a reply to my post by Dan, then Dan's post is rewrited a bit and the Moderator's name is changed to bobina and the topic is locked. It is a good thing "bobina" is not studying PR.

This is far from being the first time Dan has changed his posts afterwards. Moderator or not, that can hardly be described as good policy.

bobina will be moderating from now on along with wove - I no longer want to moderate since I'm the admin and I should leave moderating to moderators.

Me, wove, and bobina can edit posts all we want. We could also edit your posts if we really wanted to (but that never happens). Regular users can't because of some extreme editing abuses from early in 2006 involving people erasing dozens of posts at a time, resulting in threads comprising almost entirely in unsightly blank posts.

Once I figure out the addendum stuff you'll be able to add to your posts, but regular user editing will not return.

Excessive topic bumping, as on all forums, will result in locking. Most internet forums allow a maximum of two successive posts. Since we have no editing feature here, I usually let it slide, but five in a row is a bit much don't you think?

Yes but nowhere near as often during the school year, which starts next week. While at school I wont have much to contribute to S7T, which is why I asked for user-submitted articles.

I do not consider 5 posts during 25 days is "a bit much".

The question of moderator rewriting his/her posts afterwards, is not a question of can he, but rather should he do that.

Changing text afterwards to look good, is not very admirable, don't you think?
