Re: Editing a message

*Edit* (now see what I did there) Now I do understand the argument of certain pinned threads, or first post in a thread, would benefit from being editeable. But how often is there really a need for that? Often enough to motivate everyone perpetual editing rights? Or seldom enough that it's a minor ...

Re: Editing a message

IMHO the amount of posts I've made over the years, I've rarely needed to go back and edit the original. I'd rather post an additional chunk of text highlighting the error and then moving on. I don't see a problem with this change. Those that are interested in my waffle get an update and know to go ...

Re: Editing a message

Maybe someone of the admins should take a look at https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/extension/gn36_firstpostedit/ I think that could solve at least some of the problems. Yes! That would be a perfect trade-off between unlimited editing and our wish to be able to edit the first post, but unfortunate...

Re: Editing a message

We made the change to prevent abuse. While the amount of times its happened is small, the change was made to prevent it happening again. The ideal solution is to have shadow copies / versioning of posts, so that if something questionable happens, mods/admins would be able to see what edits had been...

Re: Editing a message

Possible abuse as on atari-home.de was the main reason, the discussion is still going on on the admin team. Please be patient. Possible abuse or actual abuse? To me that's a big difference. Even if it was actual abuse, the consequences of restricting editing is in my opinion a lot worse than a few ...

Re: PSU options in 2019

If you have some spare power cable somewhere, just cut it and remove the outer PVC from it and you'll find 3 wires in it. Use one of those.
The ferrite bead you can get rid of if it's in the way, it's there to suppress noise but is not critical.

And we're already losing users to Facebook (which allows you to edit your messages at any time btw) and other social media so please change this back if the user's found it useful and made good use of it!

Re: Editing a message

Was the feature to edit old messages really misused to the degree where you had to disable it? If not, please revert this change. I hate when things are changed for the worse without a good reason.

Oh, sorry but this new restriction sucks. It was general practice to always have the latest information/updates in the very first message in many threads. Too bad!

Re: Dead Falcon

Perhaps a long shot, but do you have access to an SM124 or any other Atari monochrome monitor? It could have been a combination of your original problem with the loose cable and that your NVRAM is out of battery, messing up the boot video configuration. Connecting an SM124 forces the Falcon to boot ...

Re: Have a look at my new "back panel" for my Falcon060

Thanks everyone. I'm pretty happy with the result. I have a back panel, keyboard jack, and power switch left over if anyone is interested. Just send me a PM. The power switch and keyboard jack are fairly expensive though but a snug fit is guaranteed (no glue needed). The hole for the internal/keyboa...

I have an American TT keyboard which I used with my Falcon030. Will use it with the C-Lab now. Also have a MegaST keyboard but I prefer the MegaSTE/TT boards and the MegaST keyboard is Swedish and I can't stand that keyboard layout. :-)

Have a look at my new "back panel" for my Falcon060

Hej, have a look at my new "back panel" for my Falcon060, Can't live without an external keyboard. :-)
Didn't want to make any modifications to the case this time as it's a rare C-Lab MK-II.

One of those would be useful as I have the falcon version of cosmosex, how much are you selling them for?
