Can't edit my previous comments, and discussions

  • Hi,
    Something happened to the option edit my previous comments, and discussion.
    If something has been changed in the forum code in this regard?
    Are you aware of this bug? Is someone working on improving this?

  • You just need to reload the page.
    And yes, it's known and being worked on ;)

  • Hello,
    Something happened with the option to edit my own comments, and discussion. Did something has been changed in the forum code in this regard? Are you aware of this bug? Is someone working on improving this?

    We have limited the editing to 30 minutes after you posted. This is to prevent people adding spam-links to their own, old comments or posts.

  • Thanks Christoph, I'm aware of the issue with "relod the page". My problem is different: today, since about two hours, the edit option, doesn't shows up for most of my previously added comments, or discussion.

    Ok, I understand, thank you for your reply, Andreas :-) By the way: Is this possible, that you can import all of my old posts, and comments (92) from the old form? Only 17 of them has been imported so far, but most of them are very important to me - thank you in advance ;-)

  • AFAIR only the past 6 months were imported. The rest would be outdated anyway, wouldn't it?

  • I'm aware of this also, Christoph, but I'm sure, that most of my posts from the old forum are up to date, and important to me, and they could be also useful for other Opera's users.

    Unfortunately, no. The import was a one-time operation, and we won't be importing more content from My Opera.

  • Don't worry too much about it, l33t4opera ... I lost 66K+ forum posts. Too hard for them to sift through the millions of old posts to "get to the meat", as it were. Not fun, but I can understand.

    Thanks.

  • Why can't you just import all posts? I think you can afford the extra space it takes.

    No, it would not be outdated. Opera 15 is about 9 months old, but many users are still using Opera 12 or earlier versions. You may as well import all of the old posts. There's gold-dust in some of those old threads about customising Opera, fixing plugins, etc.

    Although 90% of the threads are not worth importing, the 10% that are should not be lost to the community. Perhaps you could import all threads from the important forums — Windows, Browser, Mail, and Customising (and some others) — except those that were locked?

    It is probably easier to import the whole lot rather than filtering out some.
