But however, there is a minor rule break that can be easily edited out. If the conversation is particularly fruitful, it'd make better sense to edit the post for censorship. When a post is edited, it will be edited in a way that does not take things out of context. If that is not possible, the post will be deleted. VIPs will not be putting words into people's mouths.

I understand that would be your intention, and the intetion of such a policy, that does not mean that is how it will be used in practice by everyone at all times. Personally, I do not want my forum handle attached to posts that are editted by someone else no matter what the intention.

As far as I'm aware, no one has ever claimed it has happened

daurwyn(VIP) January 03, 2008 07:37AM

I noticed it on Pro's thread below.

Death_Claw January 03, 2008 08:39AM

Hmm, you aren't thinking of my editing are you?

daurwyn January 07, 2008 02:53PM

And as soon as we mangle anyone's context, that'd be a very viable complaint. But we don't intend to. nt

Fine but don't say I didn't warn you or complain about it later on when your good intentions backfire. n/t

Death_Claw January 03, 2008 09:23AM

I agree with Death_Claw

What about logs as an alternative example?

How about you wait until we do edit someones ideas/views/experiences, then protest?

I think it natural no one -wants- to be censored. But the silent majority understand its necessity.

It's not a necessity, but it's a damn handy tool.

I'd far prefer editing out the bad stuff from good posts. Ie, quest info from a pretty good rant on quests. nt

For what it's worth

DurNominator(VIP) January 02, 2008 12:16PM

You're missing the point, us regular folk won't know you guys changed our posts. War is Peace and Freedom is Slavery.~

happyorb January 02, 2008 12:56PM

Are you sure it doesn't say that it was edited by someone? nt

The Forsaken(VIP) January 02, 2008 01:06PM

On the pro post below "I know and I wish"

Derexal January 02, 2008 02:09PM

If I had deleted the entire post, you'd all just throw a hissy fit on over-censoring.

Yhorian(VIP) January 02, 2008 04:32PM

There's no need to get defensive.

Death_Claw January 03, 2008 08:43AM

My censored version on what it read before

DurNominator(VIP) January 02, 2008 02:25PM

Personally I am in favor for nuking the post.

Derexal January 02, 2008 02:28PM

Yeah, I agree with Dexiekins.
