Post edit expiration ?

I have noticed in the BST forum that eventually you can't edit anymore to lower price etc on the original thread. I don't think this was always the case. Any reasoning on this change ? I think it would be better to have unlimited editing ability for price adjustments.

It was made a long time ago to avoid sellers belching on their prices. If you need to update the price, you can post a message in the thread.

Yeah but few would scroll down once you've bumped the thread a few times to see you new price. Plus you can't edit the tittle to put "price drop" or the like. Juat doesn't seem like "belching" whatever that is would be that big of a problem.

I am aware of that rule, at one time I believe it was understood between the mods and users that forms of editing were not allowed.Such as changing the price without leaving the previous price, and of course not removing the price once sold i.e. Rule 9. I seem to remember the post being editable throuout the listing and you were free to make any changes within the rules of BST. Am I wrong in that recalection ?

You are correct. With the updated board software it is automated.

If you need an edit, just send a PM.
