1. I've started a massive SPAM purge, any accounts that have spammed are being removed, also for a short period new user signups are disallowed until the SPAM cleaning is finished.

Edit Time?

    How long do you allow your members to edit their posts for? I think mine is set at one hour, IPB automatically merges double posts for 3 hours I think.

    I think I have mine set to a day, but I can't remember off the top of my head.

    Yeah, I don't think it is fair people only get minutes to edit posts. I know I hate being able to edit posts for 5 minutes, so I try to make it fair. :D

    I currently have it set to unlimited but I think i'll change it to a day or two. The whole idea is to stop people going back and changing posts made several months ago and, thus, allowing them to be kept for posterity.

    To your left... no your other left.
    Too long is not good, as is too short, so a day would be about good I think.
