    Donators access and post editing questions

    I see the extra Forums for Donators below all the other forums. I thought they also had access to a special Videos forum/posts. Was I mistaken?

    Also, I searched the FAQ for information on what extra features those who donate have and must have missed it. Are they in there?

    And for editing a post - I recall being able to edit my post once, but now can't see an "Edit" option. Do you only get one correction chance?

    In this case, after the initial post, proof readers (A.K.A., other readers) might point out misspellings or verb tense mistakes that creep in as sentences are re-worked. So I'd like to go back and replace the initial post with a corrected version. Or I could make corrections inside the initial post itself.

    Is it "Locked" after the first edit, or after the first person replies? I can understand a little that you might say that after someone replies, it would create a shift in the space/time continuum if I were allowed to change what the reply was referring to.

    I searched the FAQ on post editing and if it is in there, I must have missed it too.

    I'm afraid you are mistaken. The only video section is the same one that is available to everyone. There are a bit over 700 videos there right now.

    The current Donating Member perks are -

    - Access to the Off-topic forums (currently there are subs for Roundtable Off-Topic, Backpacks, Camp Kitchen, Clothing, Cutlery, Other Gear and DIY, Paddling)
    - Greatly expanded PM limit
    - Ability to disable banners
    - Donating Member title
    - Knowledge that you are supporting HF

    You can freely edit any of your posts for the first 72 hours after they are made. After that, if something requires an edit just PM a moderator.

    access denied

    Do donating get access to all threads?
    Or is there still other factors that might limit ones privileges, beyond the 50 post min for the PIf?

    Yes, Donators have access to all of HF. The only exception is the 50-post minimum for the Marketplace.

    When we remove a thread from the forum, we move it to a mod-only area...so if you're clicking a link to a thread that has been removed, even donating members would get that message.

    Ok that explains it.
