Editing off after X days, but what about after flagging?


(Wolftune) #1

Continuing the discussion from Staff will not delete or anonymize my account, what can I do?:

Just a question: if an older post is flagged, then the poster can edit to fix it still? (some strangeness here, but not sure what’s best, though I think fixing guidelines violations is good even when older…)

These kinds of extreme edge conditions generally aren’t worth any engineering effort because the benefit is so small.

Not opposed, for the record, I just feel we’d be “fixing” a condition that is incredibly rare in the wild.

While I agree with your prioritizing, what’s the current status? Editing of older posts when flagged is not possible now? or getting flagged turns posts editable again?

Hmmm … why not create a sock puppet account on your Discourse instance and test it out :blush:
