    I just wonder why you guys need to disable the 'edit' feature after some time? it doesn't make sense for me.

    I agree with you, but we can't do anything about it, only Gimper can.

    I see, then let's hope he come back soon so he can read our suggestions/thoughts about this edit rule.

    The biggest problem is editing topics is used mostly to update tutorials, update team rosters, for instance, if I wasn't a mod, I wouldn't be able to add tutorials to tutorial heaven. I would say if he didn't limit editing it would actually help the community.

    I think the limit was for keeping away spam, but you and I are on top of all that. ;)

    Yes, animated sigs aren't allowed (although occasionally we use them)

    I think that the edit function is working without limit(?) in posts of an author in the forums. It helped me in updates. Is there really a limit in edits? (If not, it is very fine as it is already!)

    Btw I think it's weird because this thread is under Gimp news and not in Gimper news.
