I completely agree! If there is a problem with phrasing it can be addressed in a separate post, grammar or spelling isn't enough to matter.
We really don't need to have everything quoted, particularly for mobile users.
This has been an ongoing problem, I'd rather the time limit be a couple hours.

Thank you so much

Sure. I would like to know though, if people can just quote the post before responding, why have it in place? You could, perhaps, put a notification while making a post/topic saying something along the lines of "If you are responding to a post, you may want to quote it, as the poster may edit their post."

Riuma A better solution would be to quote the post as it is rather then make people unable to edit them after a certain amount of time. It could be for things as simple as correct grammar/spelling mistakes.

I've done that too! So frustrating! I came back to the thread after thinking how to word my post without being inflammatory. I went back to read replies to my post that didn't make any sense to find the parts of the post I replied to had been altered, making me seem off my rocker!

This used to happen frequently, even with this rule, when we were more active and caused quite a disturbance.

If you feel a video link would add to the op I can add it for you. Just message a mod or administrator, or just add it in another post

I would like to put the video I just recently posted in the thread (What is Classical Liberalism) right above the Beliefs Table.

Why is that implemented (assuming it is)? It doesn't seem to be necessary.

Can't Edit Topic

I made a topic, Politics and Pets, and now it doesn't appear I can edit the first post that I made.

(I feel like this has happened before and it got resolved...? I don't remember...)
