Alas, Adie (illusion) has just logged-on and, in a fit of recalcitrant childish pique, tried to delete all his posts.

As you can appreciate, this has left some threads looking a wee bit lopsided, but that's how he intended to leave them, so it is what it is.

Seems that he doesn't like to lose debates and thought this silly attack would be suitable 'pay back' Roll Eyes

Sorry guys, but as a result of this, I've altered the amount of time a member has to alter or edit a post (once they've posted it) to 5 minutes.

Therefore, in future, if anyone wants a post editing (after five minutes has elapsed since it was posted), then please let either a Mod or me know and we'll be happy to do it based on merit & necessity - i.e. it has to be a valid, rationale and sensible reason for a post's deletion or editing - not just a taking-my-ball-in, toys out of the pram spasm like Adie's.

UPDATE:

After a bit of jiggery-pokery, I've managed to recover & salvage 99.999'% of the posts from the wee tyke's delete-fest, so the threads are all back to normal and looking well again.

And anyway, the risk of any more deletes should have gone, as he's largely stopped posting anything here (which is kinda bizarre, seeing as he pleaded to be allowed back so he could contribute to the debates we have here    ). Might have to retrieve and award him his old avatar back   Big Grin  Strange really, the lad was offered the opportunity to return, begin posting again as before, like nothing had happened, no questions asked and he never took it? I guess you can lead a horse to water...  Roll Eyes


Anywhooo..., since the threat appears to have gone, I've changed the time allowed to edit a post back up to 15 minutes, that gives everyone ample time to proof-read and do any editing they need to do.

As of now, the time limit to edit posts after you've made them has been changed to 20 minutes. That should be ample time for proofreading and editing.

Let's hope that no one gives us reason to reduce it again...
