Meta Question

Will there ever be a time when we can choose to edit our question titles?

I guess this is more to mods, but it would be quite useful sometimes.
I know all about the if it’s obviously rubbish you’ll be forced to change it, but I’m talking about freely editing questions.

I don’t think it should be an option. Making things permanent all around Fluther is in my opinion why the quality of content is so high. If you’re forced to think about what you say before you commit to it being displayed forever naturally you’ll up your game.

And you can edit questions and quips, but after a while the window of opportunity for that expires. I love it as is. Maybe an extra minute or two would be nice, but I’m not too invested in it.

I think you’ve got something like 5–7 minutes to make your edits before the entry (either question or quip) is permanently committed to the primary database.

If they did eventually allow changes after any amount of time, I think it’d be important to be able to view previous iterations of the question/quip. And then that’d likely clutter up the interface, confuse people, yadda yadda yadda.
