    I think the Edit option is enabled for 24 or 48 hrs currently by the Forum Admin.

    But that is my point. There should not be any time limit. I wonder anyhow why they limit the time. What's the purpose?

    There can be many reason for same... like:
    1) Suppose a user make some good posts and after few days just edit his/ her posts and add few links in all posts.

    2) Suppose user account is hacked, the hacker can delete all posts of the user.

    To avoid such situations, these settings are done.

    Just click your username in a post, or, when you are logged in, click your name after the "Welcome Pankaj" in the top right corner under the WinVistaClub Forum banner.

    A 24 time limit is quite generous...one forum I am a member of has something like a 5 or 10 min limit, which is way too short. I often will post something, then think of something else to add (like a link, for example) only to find that I had to create another post right under my initial post. Just doesn't look aesthetically pleasing!

    Question

    I know I am being stupidbut how will these changes effective us, that is the "ordinary" members here? Will we notice the changes and will we still be able to use it as we are now? Apart from that can I just say that I appricate the hard work at everyone does on our behalf. Perhaps to share the burden of cost we could have a voluntary payment to help with the cost?I don't know how this could be set up, but I wouldn't mind making a contribution if it helped to keep this forum going

    Default odd suggestion, hear me out

    wouldnt it make sense for the MVPs to have their names in identifiable group colors? their member colors clash with reg members. example-

    in stats: v3loc1ty, James, Corrine, Alsiladka

    purple or green lol
    eh?
