Continuing the discussion from this topic:
One of the new features added to Discourse in the wake of Stonehearth’s massive spam attack was the ability to limit editing to certain trust levels. This was done in part because many of the spammers exploited a loophole in spam checking by submitting a valid post then editing it within the 5 minute grace period. Unfortunately, this restricts all editing, not just grace edits.
Currently, the following site setting exists
editing grace period with a default of
300 seconds. I’d like to suggest a new site setting:
TL0 editing grace period, or alternatively
allow TL0 grace editing.
