Continuing the discussion from Student ejected from ceremony for graduating while black:
This happens periodically to me as well where I want to go back and edit a older topic of mine but find that I am longer able to. @codinghorror what is the purpose of having the ability to edit tied to a time after which it expires? What is the amount of time before your ability to edit a topic or post expires? Also, why don’t wiki’s have this edit expiration?
If this is a site feature that needs to be preserved, and if it is tied to a set time limit and not something else, would it be possible to tie it instead to continued views or activity around a post or topic? How feasible would it be to reactivate the ability to edit posts or topics if they see an uptick in activity and views even after they have been quiet for a while?
