    Gamefaqs still uses archaic forum software though.

    Welcome to 2002, Gamefaqs.

    Edit: Edited just because I felt like it.

    GBATemp probably has an edit history too, it's just not public.

    You know how redundant it is though? If anyone posts something that violates the rules, they can just delete it and repost, rather than edit a post.
    But no, most people will actually edit instead, and trap themselves in their mistake.

    It's actually a REALLY mean thing to do.

    Maybe soon they'll have... forum avatars?

    No wait, I'm too ahead of myself. That's probably a 2015 feature.

    You can still get modded even after you delete your post though. It's actually happened to a few people before.

    Its good to see they are updating the forums, even if they are still way behind the ball in terms of most forums. I just dont see why they can't play catch up since they have a huge userbase. Sure the users are generally idiots but its still a large amount of people.

    It's like they're keeping the retards penned up in their own area of the internet, and as far as I'm concerned, it's welcome [​IMG]

    Well, it's about time. I do like the format as is though, it's very easy to read. It's also great for those stuck with dial-up. Not me...but when I did have it, GameFAQs was great in that respect.

    May I remind everyone that they aren't called "Gamefags" by a certain imageboard for nothing?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but can't mods and admins on this site see edited posts? I know that's how it was on the other site I was on that used vBulletin...
