Extending the edit option on the Pilot Notes pages.

By Tim Dawson - 9/27/2023 11:03:50 AM

We deliberately turn off editing after a short window to correct initial mistakes, because when pilot notes are responding to other pilot notes (as happens frequently) it's important to us that the historical record is maintained accurately. If there's new information to be shared, the right thing to do is write a new note. Otherwise, another issue would be that the new information would be scrolled up and look like it was out of date.

Would it be possible to leave the edit option open on the Pilot's Notes pages for particular airfields? At present one can edit an input for a short period of time but then the option is removed. If the individual user is logged in and the only person able to alter their own input does it make any difference if the edit option is turned off? 

I've put in a few entries where the information I've written could do with updating but been forced to write a separate entry instead. It might keep things tidier if we could simply alter what we've written. One example is updating the phone numbers of local taxis or hostelry etc.
