Post Another stoopid question..  Reply with quote
Very stupid question..
Is a double post when you update an original via a reply?... And if you edit your original will people who are interested get see that it has changed?

From my limited experiences on this forum,  I think that it counts as a double post when you just copy and paste a already existing post/thread. What im sure of is that people dont see when you edit a post, and have to physically look at the time the post was last edited on the bottom left of the post.

A double post is when you post twice one after another without anyone posting inbetween. It doesn't highlight edits. Double posts are only allowed when you are in a trading thread and you have added new items to the origional post and you want to draw attention to it, this is called a bump.

EDIT

Dusty's explanation is correct. A double post consists of two successive posts by a single user. In place of a double post we ask that you simply edit your original post.

Bare in mind that edits don't create alerts for anyone watching the topic. If you want to keep everybody informed of an update/edit, you have to copy your previous post, delete it, then paste it into a new post with the amendments. It's a bit of a faff I know but it helps keep things tidy.

How do we delete a post? Every time i've looked I can't see an option to do so

Edit - answered my own question - Delete appears to the right of the Edit button. Is it time limited?

Not as far as I'm aware.

It's not time-limited but AFAIK you can only delete your post if it's the last post in the thread (hence why not all posts have a delete button). This is why you have to delete your old post after copying the contents but before you create the new "bump" post.

... And this explains why I couldn't delete my original post on my mod log.  Thanks SSGT
