Create threads with short editing span?



Does the forum software support creation of threads with short editing window? Or at least a thread where not even subscribers have the option to edit posts after one hour. The use case would be logging threads like the two gameplay trackers I maintain. Sometimes subscribers may post a few days early, I pick it up and transfer to Excel, and two days later I notice the post has been updated while I thought it was final.


If there is no solution to this, I fully understand and it is a rather small issue but I thought I can as well ask.

No, one hour is fine. What I was jabbing at are those who pay for AtariAge subscriptions who can edit their posts for one month. That probably is fine in most regular discussion threads, but in a thread of a logging type where someone would pick up data to be inserted in an external source and compiled for a summary, it can yield unexpected results unless already posted messages are read twice, or the compilation of data is delayed until well after the weekly deadline has passed instead of saving time by adding data as it is posted.
