View Full Version : Adam

As I have already once pointed out in this same place, it would be largely necessary that "forum" would provide a means of editing, or even canceling postings. Those not full acquainted with the usage of english are sometimes led to foolish errors, which ad posteriore realised, become irreparable.

... and as it was also pointed out in this same forum for this very same request, if such feature was to be allowed, some people might be tempted to change their own original message following the replies they would get. We will then end up with threads of discussions with disconnected messages and totally unreadable.

Would you raise such unfair doubt upon your pals at this site ?

There's about 13 000 members on this website and I agree, few active but still few thousands. So yes I will raise such a doubt and I'm not the only one, Adam being the first to agree (Well actually it is more like I agree with Adam since he is the one who decide not to have this feature). And I'm not unfair but realistic.

Suppose you have a proxy from Adam to answer and speak on his behalf ? Your pitch sounds some decibels much aloud to my taste...stating with your reticences...

It is not the first time this request was made on this forum and Adam's reply always been the same.

I agree with Green/Romain - far too much potential for abuse. You have the option to preview your message before you post it... If you still can't get it right make a reply with your correction!
Most people don't care whether you make one or two little mistakes here and there anyway :-)

See English version under.
Pessoalmente concordo que as mensagens nos foruns não possam ser editadas.
Se estas fossem editadas após terem sido colocadas e respondidas por outros membros, para além de toda a lógica da discussão poder ser destruída põe-se também a questão de algumas discussões onde existe conflito entre os membros (poucas mas existem) poderem ser manipuladas.
Isto é, um membro insulta o outro, que lhe responde, e posteriormente o primeiro edita a mensagem ficando a parecer o “bom da fita”. Desta forma, se a situação for grave, quem começou todo o problema pode sair como vitima e quem “apenas” reagiu ficará marcado e poderá mesmo sofrer sanções. E como foi dito é sempre possível escrever uma nova mensagem a esclarecer o engano.
Se esta questão já foi aqui respondida mais que uma vez pelo Adam, não me parece necessário que volte a ser colocada nos foruns. Pode sempre voltar a sugerir a funcionalidade por mail se achar que os argumento usados da última vez para recusar a função já não se aplicam.
Finalmente, acho perfeitamente normal que se tenham cautelas relativamente a uma comunidade virtual como o TE pois existem milhares de membros que não conheço e que garantidamente não ponho as mãos no fogo por eles... Consegue você atestar a honestidade de 13.000 que nunca viu nem sequer falou?...
Não concordo é que esteja a tentar tornar o Romain um mau-carácter por lhe responder o óbvio. E ninguém está mandatado pelo Adam. Apenas a recordar respostas anteriormente dadas por ele, e que sendo públicas poderão ser citadas até ele vir dizer o contrário. E penso que ninguém estava a ser rude consigo. Se não consegue aguentar opiniões diferentes da sua então envie uma mensagem particular ao Adam e não coloque questões no forum publico. Nunca me pareceu que o Romain estivesse a falar “fora do tom”...
Personaly I agree that forum postings shouldn’t be edited.
If these were to be edited after being posted and answered, besides all the logic of the discussion becoming destroyed, there’s also the question that some threads were conflict arouses (few but existing) may become manipulated.
I mean, one member insults other, which answers to him, later the first one edits the message becoming the “good guy”. This way, if it’s a serious situation, the one that started the whole problem may get out as the victim and only the one that “just” responded will be marked and suffer sanctions. And as it was said it’s always possible to write a new message and clear the mistake.
If Adam has previously answered this question, I don’t think that it’s necessary to but put here again. You may always suggest this feature by mail if you think the arguments used last time don’t apply anymore.
Finally, I think it’s perfectly natural to be cautious regarding a virtual community like TE because there are thousands of members which I don’t know and I certainly won’t put my hands on the fire for them. Can you insure the honesty of 13.000 members who you never seen and spoke to?
I don’t agree that you’re trying to make Romain as a bad character for him to state the obvious. And no one is a spokesman of Adam. It was just remembered answers stated by him previously, which being public statements may be repeated until he comes stating the opposite. And I don’t think anyone was being rude with you. If you can’t handle different opinions from yours send a private message to Adam and don’t put these questions in a public forum. I never thought Romain was talking “out of tone”…
