    reason: as some threads are more informative/collective lists rather than a discussion, it's very helpful for succinctness that the OP be continuously editable. In order to maintain OP history, the earlier versions of the text could be retained in the OP.

    This would also save repeated requests into the moderators to update the OP.

    The issue we have is when someone gets upset that users aren't supporting their OP. They'll go in and erase it all ruining the conversation. We hate it when people get petty and try to sabotage a discussion, don't you? In addition, we simply don't get that many requests to feel that we have to cut down on them. The current process seems to be working just fine and I haven't heard a single mod complain.

    • Hit the report button.
    • In the reasons box put "Please change text/title to read: "Insert complete updated text in quotes".
      • Please don't give directions on which word(s) to change as these are too easy to misunderstand.
      • Just give us the ENTIRE edited version of how you want it to read!
      • If you want us to change text and title, please send two reports. One report for each request.
    • This generates a thread in the Mod Squad which every mod can read.
    • If it's straightforward, some mod will jump right on it and deal with the request, usually within a few minutes.
    • If it's not-so-straightforward, then we'll discuss it and let you know our decision. Please be patient!

    Thanks very much. I'll squeeze in one edit inside the 24hr editing period, and then will come to you for the next set of edits :)
