Re: What about logs as an alternative example?

January 03, 2008 07:10AM
I understand that there are uses for it that would be nice from a moderators stand point that are not really objectionable to me as a forum poster, ie editing out the one rule breaking prep or name in a log or some such that was an obvious oversight by the original poster. It is not hard to contrive uses for such a tool that are innocuous and hard to argue against. But, to me editing in general is a lot more subjective, it in general allows moderators a lot more control over what actually shows up on the forum, and it is easy to see how it can be used to in a manner I would object to. To me if a post is actually beneficial AND breaks the rules, then it should be deleted, and followed with a short post saying something like: "ok to repost without x rule breaking mention in it". This has been done countless times before and allows the original poster, not a moderator the chance to rephrase or not repost as they see fit. The thing is the post represents the posters ideas, views, expereince etc, they should have the right over the content of the post.

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

Let's say that there's a big discussion following started by the thread.

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

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.
