Re: Why silent edit?

Those forums do not give even the administrator much control.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Found it.  I thought it was part of the profile, but I see it is part of the post itself.  I have turned off silent edit.

I assumed that the people who are offering the chance to create the forum would be the ones with more options.

There are forums for free forums ( I am not kidding ) that will help unlock the functionality.

Some forums I have looked at will allow you to enter code to change the functionality.

Re: Why silent edit?

Why not use a server where you alone manage all the code without caring about anyone Else's intervention?

That I do not know. Some of them promote ads in their user's pages.

Did you see that site ending with a .co.nf?

No I did not see that.

Many people do not want the ads.

I remembered the answer!

They have premium features available only for paid users( but to run a forum you do not need that).
