I think that might overcomplicate things as it would mean having to assign permissions individually. Better way would be to have an edit function that's available to everyone and just let those who don't want it not use it.
Vila: I'm entitled to my opinion.
Avon: It is your assumption that we are entitled to it as well that is irritating.

Mrs Z - Would we have said to Shakespeare "No I'm sorry, you wrote "A plague on both you're houses" and you can't change it. Preview is your friend"?


Ehrm... In the time of the great bard there was not even a preview, it was 'write once, regret forever' in those days so one would really have to think about what they wanted to write *before* they wrote it :D15:

OK, sorry, didn't notice how much further the thread had moved and replied to something way way way past the conservation date (play on words for conversation :D15: haha). I could have un-posted or edited but that would remove the opportunity for others to learn from my mistake. And... I thought it funny so maybe someone else would think it is funny and liked it and maybe even respond to it so that the topicdrift that is part of the culture of h2g2 has been cast free once more and possibly even derail the yes/no is/isn't do/don't play by play of the conversations about the isssue....
I'm rambling, I can tell.
I'll go sit in that corner now. :S13:
