more choices under "enable edit protection"?
In the Forum module, the checkbox gives:
"If this is checked, then 24 hours after a forum post is made, users who are NOT a Profile Admin OR the forum owner will no longer be able to edit or delete the forum post."
I find that if a member likes to stir people up, they can post a new thread that provokes some counter responses, and then after they've had a bunch of reactions and caused a debate, they simply delete the whole thing. If I'm away from my computer for the day I may not see it develop.
My point is that the 24 hours gives a whole lot of time where trouble can brew, multiple others can respond, and the original poster still has the power to just delete it all and be pleased with the reactions they got... like a kid who rings the doorbell and then hides in the bushes.
If I had more choices than just 24 hours, I could shorten it so there would not be such a long time window where many members could respond to a provocative post but the whole thing still be deleted by the original poster.
On some online forums, the original poster cannot delete their own discussion after there has been a reply to it. I find that a bit too restrictive, and I also don't want to set it so that the poster cannot delete their own posts and discussions at all. But 24 hours allows too much time for members who have discovered they can start a debate and then pull the plug on everyone.
For this Jamroom option, I'd like to see choices such as 2 hrs, 6 hrs, 12 hrs, 24 hrs, 48 hrs, and maybe 1 week. That would give a big range of choice for us as site owners. Different kinds of sites might have different needs.
Is this something that could be easily added?
