This applies to editing or deleting your post.
We discussed this on my site the other day, and some users mentioned how on other forums with good quality content and guides, editing privilege gets revoked after a set time so you can't edit your posts without contacting a mod.
I argued that while I understand an admin wants to keep good quality content posted on the site and prevent it from being altered or removed easily, I feel if it's the user's content, they should always have control over their content and be free to edit and delete if they wish. This also keeps down the mod admin time responding to requests to edit.
Guides can also be improved over time, or a user may wish to add more info to the OP over time.
Some other use cases might be where members get riled up and in a tiff, or drunk or whatever else. They may say things they didn't mean to, or wouldn't have otherwise posted. They should then be able to edit or remove this themselves.
Just now I went to edit one of...
I am getting very frustrated at this point and would sincerely appreciate any advice from people that have been in this situation.
I own an anime forum and I am getting caught up in a barrage of false DMCA notices. I have had many Google SERPs removed due to copyright allegation claims by numerous companies.
But they are all without any legal basis! Some of the DMCA claims don't even match against the URLs in question on my site! It seems Google, to reduce their liability they will just remove your Google SERPs upon receipt of a DMCA takedown notice sent to them without any requirement to confirm it actually does infringe copyright!
This is the latest one I received via Google, where one of my tag pages were removed:
Long time member, first time post
I have a busy forum that started in 2004. For the last 8 years I've used vBulletin, currently 3.8xx because I don't like VB 4 or 5 and I can't see it improving any time soon.
Clearly Xenforo is superior and personally I'd like to make the switch. What I am worried about though is will my long term members adapt? Will they find a new platform confusing and depart, or will they enjoy the extra features and stay?
My members are typically of an older age bracket (35-60) and while they know how to use VB maybe they'll find the changes too much and run off to Facebook.
Anyone have any experience of this kind of switch?
