Will there be an ability to edit our profile comments?
In case if we make a mistake or a spelling error, or we want to change our opinions.

>will there be

doubt it.
the board software hasn't been worked on in ages, so I'm not sure about how to get dirbaio to push small changes like this.

I remember blargboard allowed one to delete thier own comment, but it also allowed them to post insults and remove it once read. so it had to be disabled.

Removing profile comments is possible. It is not enabled for non staff members tho to prevent drama mentioned by Thierry.

If you have anything to add just do a new comment.

I'm in favor of completely axing profile comments anyway


* the main uses are a) conversations that could go in PMs and b) posting stupid shit (and c) for certain people to post copypasted welcome messages to every new user)
* conversations are spread over two profiles or more, making it a pain to follow old conversations
* the system is much easier to abuse than the proper discussion systems already in place (threads, PMs) while having less features


the only advantage is that it's quick to use

you said you were fine with it ;-;
I'm not really against profile comments, but I can see why you guys want them gone. But there are good uses for it, such as birthday wishes and quick questions.

Profile comments are also useful when someone has his/her PM function blocked by admins, and want to tell the admins to unblock that.

I don't feel like missing one more thing after the main page is gone, but I can't deny comments aren't much of use.

Then again, you can't just have every single member on Skype, and a whole bunch of PMs for every single conversations sounds unconvenient.

it's kind of silly when the user turns out to be a lurker or a russian kitchen spammer. I'd atleast wait until they post something.

indeed. Skype is crapo. so is Discord.

PM threads solve the 'bunch of PMs for every single convo' bit, by keeping them together in a nice thread.
