Thread: 1 minute edit limit...

    looks like ubuntuforum did really good job managing this stuff without limit at all!
    Maybe all is needed that phoronix does the next step towards a open community and look after some moderator volunteer?

    I just registered at the arch linux forums and they also have NO edit limit, and I didn't find any spam around. I was able to edit my own single post with no problems. Having no limit at all is the best, but having the current limit increased would already be a welcome improvement. The words "[insult] edit time limit" must be a very big part of the phoronix forums by now

    With moderators around they can catch and deal with spammers that slip thru the antispam defenses

    Michael you should delegate moderation authority to trusted people so you don't have to do it all alone

    I second the above.
    Both Fedoraforum and Ubuntuforum seem to use the same software as Phoronix and yet both of them doesn't seem to suffer from spammers, even though both enable unlimited editing.

    ... I wonder how they did it.
    Micheal, have you considered contacting them and asking their help?

    Big side of the open source concept is this: win in competition isn't about try to kick others out... but provide the best result with shared knowledges.

    It's just a matter of looking up the vBulletin anti-spam plug-ins. It's on my TODO list to do this but alas there's a ton of stuff on that list. If anyone who really hates the time limit wants to do the homework of looking up such plug-ins, you're welcome to.

    Sadly enough, I know nothing about vbulletin, so I cannot really help...

    Thanks for the update.

    Add me to the list of people miffed by the 1m limit. Seems a bit pointless even having an edit button as it stands.

    if you going to keep an edit limit, then why not mandatory preview? but raise edit limit to at least 10 too

    Listen to that guy

    seriously, he speaks the truth.
