    Hi. I just wonder why the heck my WTB threads can be edited for a while, like two months or whatever, and then I suddenly can't edit it anymore... Is it possible to change that? Or do I really need to PM a mod/admin to have them delete my thread so I can make a new one? :eek:

    Thanks.

    Because the new administration team thinks it makes sense to have an edit-timeout ..... which it doesn't, at all.

    I've ended up having to post a thread 3 different times in order to keep it "up to date", and the staff cannot unlock it. I've just given up on this website a long time ago. :D

    Are you saying staff is unable to unlock the ability to edit threads for unlimited time?

    Just post a new thread if need be. Leave the old one to drop.

    And yet you continue to use the free marketplace to advertise your items for sale ;) Doesn't sound like giving up to me!

    I guess I can do that. And it's not that it's a problematic way to deal with it, but why - God, why, can't we just fix this. Are we under a strict-for-no-reason dictatorship now or something lol?

    Hey ho, hey ho, let's not start something... That part was not relevant to the question, so there's a reason I didn't hop on that. Let's pin the dictator instead. :)

    So there's absolutely no-one we can ask to change this?

    If the moderators can't do anything, i wouldn't hope for anything.

    Wait a minute. I thought we had this discussion before and the decision was to not enforce this rule? Somehow, I can't find that thread anymore either...

    So the final decision was to go with the automatic locking? I can't say that I love it, but well...
