in reply to RE: RE: Edit original article
in thread Edit original article

I don't agree, I want all nodes I've written to be editable by me. Most nodes are editible now and I don't see any major abuses. What I usually see is this, when someone edits one of their nodes and doing that makes a following node meaningless, then the person who editied their node adds a note to that effect.

I don't see why the articles on the main page aren't editible, it seems to me that it wouldn't be abused any more than the current editing feature is.

Adding further addenda (addendums ?) just adds clutter where editing the original would have sufficed. IMO.

As for using the preview, well this node doesn't seem to have one.

Baldrick, you wouldn't see a subtle plan if it painted itself purple and danced naked on top of a harpsichord, singing "Subtle plans are here again!"
