hmm ?

just curious, what did you perceive as "new" here ?

(last update was like 2 years ago ..)

Hmm - i had the impression that my comments are better formatted now(new lines preservation , etc) But maybe i am just way off - anyway - its not that important :-)

Hmm i can edit post of other users - is this a bug? Or was i somehow "promoted"?

" Or was i somehow "promoted"?" -- nope.

on the other hand, we always need more "moderators" here (which is less glamorous, as it sounds, mostly removing spam from the input queue...)

so if you want that, we should ask mshabunin, to add you to the list !

i don't think, it should be possible (or permitted), to edit other's posts. maybe make an issue here about it ?

I just login and click on edit. I will prove it on editing the coments from above.

Some time before that i noticed that known "Duplicate Comment Preview Window" when i accendently clicked on edit a post from berak. Maybe i got his rights somehow(bug)?

And i dont think i have enough knowledge right now to be a moderator ;-) Anyway - its no big deal for me and i will just be responsible. Its also fine if you remove this permissions.

ok. so we have a proof. but no idea why. issue, please ?

yea, i know the "Duplicate Comment Preview Window" issue, too, but i don't think, it's related.
