    I've seen a lot of people wanting the ability to edit another member's messages, but if discord has the permission for that it could be used for framing or trying to get someone else in trouble.

    That would easily be abused by other people ( admins/staff members )
  • Greem

    While a good idea, that would be overly abused.

    Now, everyone here is saying that it would be abused, but that would be entirely the server owner's wrongdoing. They were the ones who granted that permission, and they are fully responsible for what they have done within the server.

    What about you can see who edited the message. For example: Message (edited by {name})

    I see a lot of people saying it can be abused, but so can things like banning, kicking, etc. All this would do is improve functionality and I would 100% love to see this implemented.

    There is still the audit log, here you could see such edits.

    It'd cause crisis. No please

    Think about a server with shared admins and a welcome message with rules

    Currently only the original poster can edit this post, however I would like all my admins to be able to edit that topic.

    I run a business server and people have to present themselves in order to get access to more channels

    Sometimes in their presentation they put ads or business links...
    I would like to be able to keep their presentation but remove their commercial link

    +1 for this feature!

    I've wanted to be able to collaborate with others in Discord for quite some time. Technically, I want to be able to (and have others be able to) post a message and as the poster specifically allow editing by [role].

    I know that everyone is saying that this can be abused, And you have others that say that this will be a very usefull feature, And I know that the only abuse that can be caused by this is the fault of the server owner by giving people the permissions, But It could still be used for evil. For example, a server owner purposely trying to ruin ones reputation. Like a user could say something, but an admin or owner could edit the message and make it look like the mark was saying something bad. Screenshot it and ruin the marks reputation.

    As with posts that are edited by the owner, posts edited by those allowed to by the owner could have a clickable "edited by..." link that would pop open the list of editors.

  • Tim

    I love the idea of Dal Stahr, I would go even further in being able to see what a message was before it got edited, this is a problem I have faced in the past with removed and edited messages.

    Or be able to mark/delete hateful language from posts.

    this will never happen and would be abused to no end in the majority of discord communities. Discord is not a forum software and should not contain forum-esque features such as this.

    What

  • Doggo

    The reason u can't edit the message other people sent is so u can't frame someone for anything...
