    Exclamation Cannot Edit Old [Historical] Post
    Hi, I recently made the mistake of typing out my domain name in a site review post. This post now ranks extremely high in google for a search of my domain name, which isn't good. I would like to edit the post to "dot com" so that this no longer happens. But I don't seem to be able to edit or delete posts at all? Can anyone help me?

    Updated the ABW rules pursuant to this request and countless ones I've gotten in email. Below is the clause added:

    Historical Post Editing:
    It is not our [moderator's] job to edit out inconveniences of the original poster, if we [ABW] rank well for your keyword or domain it is because the SE thinks it is relevant. Henceforth, such requests are subsequent to a payment schedule of $25 per edited post payable via paypal to the moderator who does the edit.

    [The NEW rule is not applicable to the request above.]
    Continued Success,

    Haiko

    Hi guys,

    I just sent a mail to forum admin for a site review edit... but it wasn't anything to do with SEO factors. I wanted to change the points I listed to note in the review to be less specific - does this sort of change also fall under the editing rule?

    Thanks,
    Rox

    If you delete those points in your review thread that I just spent over an hour responding to, your name will be below "mud!"

    Anyway, I quoted the 8 points in my response. So, no point in changing that part of your post.

    Hi Leader,

    I've added the points I wanted to change to the review thread instead of in the original review request post as an edit - so your indepth review remains intact in all it's honest, insightful glory.

    I didn't mean to create mayhem and confusion - I was just trying to avoid being too specific instead of asking for overall impressions. Your general feedback before you went through the points made me realize that I was erring on the side of caution.

    The lesson I learnt today? Prevention is better than cure, especially when it comes to post edits!

    Thanks,
    Rox
