I've sent someone a Personal Message (PM). I want to edit it but see no Edit button. Any help would be appreciated.
Reviving this old thread because I would like to ask - WHY NOT? Editing a PM can be such a useful feature and saves from long strings of PM that can be just one message corrected/changed/added to, aka, edited. Its possible on some forums.
Any chance since the forum upgrades that PM editing could become a full time feature, rather than time sensitive?
Is there a down side? Obviously if some conversation is in dispute on some exchange deal gone bad and someone goes in to correct what they said - 2 week ago - anyone looking, who cares, can see the time stamp of the recent edit. It's not like you could cheat the system by lying? Am I missing something?
Thanks for considering.
Actually it is different, moderators can't see a PM between members unless invited to the conversation and no "history" tab shows in a PM after an edit like it does in the open forum.As for my imagined downside - I don't think it is a downside because you can see (certainly the moderators can) what time and day your message was edited. No different than when writing a post in the open forum.
