The feature that allows editing of published posts

Virily has been magnanimous in letting us edit published posts which is a good thing.  Sometimes one sees howlers that are not noticed before publishing no matter how careful one is. Previewing and playing the quiz by the one who creates it also helps but enough is not enough.

Sadly there is the possibility of misuing this feature as Admin will not see it before it is republished. 

Users therefore could only perhaps edit those posts that have just been published to edit errors if any and not the old ones as, if the old ones are edited they reappear as new posts.  

  • Should published posts that are subject to edit be approved by Admin even if they come from verified users?

    • Yes
    • No

  1. I do not understand what the sense to overload admin with already approved posts? My old posts are missing photos, I do not edit any texts, only add new photos that they would not look weird. Does it need approval?

  2. I mostly take polls and quizzes on here. I’ve seen plenty of quizzes, which have errors in them; sometimes quite a few errors. If that is the case, why the need for admin approval when they get published with errors anyway?

  3. Allowing people to edit posts have lead to major problems in site I have worked with. On one site people have edited their posts and left just alphabets. It becomes a pain to keep approving edited posts when there the staff /moderators numbers are low on a site. I would just like being able to edit the typos in my responses.

  4. I think published posts that have been just posted and need to be edited should be edited and reposted right away but older posts that need editing should be admin approved after editing so that they don’t pop up suddenly as new posts again,

  5. I don’t agree… I think this feature is even edited for editing old posts because there was a bug that is still not fixed and our photos are missing in old posts. Also, why not change the article if you want it to be changed… After all, this is a blogging site, and we write not only for the people here but for the people outside the site and I think we have the right to show them what we write the way we want it…
