What would you rather – Your post not posted at all, and an explanation emailed to you. Or your post edited and posted, and big EDITED at the end of it?April 1, 2011 5:05 am at 5:05 am #755444
I’d prefer the email.
EDITEDApril 1, 2011 5:09 am at 5:09 am #755445
I’d choose an explanation. I doubt you expect the mods to do that, though. Oh, and I gather this is regarding your other post?;) Well, I feel for you. Don’t feel offended. They don’t even know you! (suppose that mod’s is that old foggie with bald head, cane, hunch, wrinkles, heavy accent…Who cares?)
Your description is totally off.April 1, 2011 5:09 am at 5:09 am #755446His Royal HighnessMember
I think the “edited” notation should be lower case and not bold, so it doesn’t feel like a “potch” to the poster. Instead of bolding, use indenting (lower case).
I’d also prefer an edited comment than no comment, with the proviso that the editing does not change the original meaning of the comment or make it meaningless.April 1, 2011 5:15 am at 5:15 am #755447
Duh. I trying to be a pain!
EDITED POSTApril 1, 2011 5:19 am at 5:19 am #755448
observe – Yes, it was in regard to that. I did not write something that I feal was a need to get edited, but if I would have had a choice I would have picked no post, because people think the worst of an edited – like it must have been realy bad…April 1, 2011 5:22 am at 5:22 am #755449
Now, now. Don’t tell me I started up with YOU again. SIGH.
I prefer being referred to as the ‘royal we.’April 1, 2011 5:27 am at 5:27 am #755450
Awwww. I really love brussel sprouts!!

DY – Was that you or a mod?April 1, 2011 5:31 am at 5:31 am #755452
Okayyyyy…… I love driving the Mods crazy!!!!
Please note, this poster is up way past her bedtime and you cannot trust the stuff she posts.April 1, 2011 5:35 am at 5:35 am #755453

Too bad they do not pay me time and a half for this.April 1, 2011 5:40 am at 5:40 am #755454

Additonaly, when the Mods write a note in the end of a post, why cant they email to the poster, why is it nogeia to everyone else?April 1, 2011 5:34 pm at 5:34 pm #755460bptParticipant
In a nutty way, every now and then I love getting the EDITED potch. It makes me look like a rebel!
Come to think of it, I’ll think I’ll go post something on the “nail polish” thread, just to see myself get whacked.April 1, 2011 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #755461hudiParticipant

I don’t think I’ve ever been *EDITED*, but when my posts get rejected I take it, not as a potch, but as a FRASK, & take it very personally; I usually go AWOL (AFK in computer-speak: away from keyboard), get a little introspective. …& then I come back.April 1, 2011 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #755463
always here – you rather get an edited? So not just you know that you got a frask, everyone also will know that you got one?April 1, 2011 7:38 pm at 7:38 pm #755464whocaresMember
I actually disagree with some of YWN’s hashkafos in regards to editing. I feel that they sometimes allow things that do not belong on YWN, and other things that have nothing wrong with them, they edit or don’t post. (I will not be surprised if they edit this post as well!!!)April 1, 2011 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #755465
Such are the natures of human beings.April 1, 2011 7:49 pm at 7:49 pm #755466

Why the EDITED do my EDITED posts keep getting edited???!!!April 3, 2011 3:59 am at 3:59 am #755471
Wow, I doubt the mods ever EDITED my posts as much as they did on this thread!April 3, 2011 2:29 pm at 2:29 pm #755472bygirl93Member
i feel they should edit it but not write *EDITED*April 3, 2011 3:26 pm at 3:26 pm #755473
i feel they should edit it but not write *EDITED*
Sometimes, the edit changes the meaning of the post, so it’s in the interest of accuracy that the EDITED tag is added.
