Hi, I have noticed that it is now possible to edit PMs even after the recipient has read it. There is no indication that the message has been edited and no way to see what the edit was. I think this should be changed to avoid potential conflict. Either make them un-editable, cant be changed once read, or it made very clear that this message was edited and what the edit was.

Thanks

I have changed the settings for conversations so that private conversation messages are only able to be edited for 2 minutes after submission.

This provides members an opportunity to correct any embarrassing grammar/spelling errors noticed just after hitting send, but does not enable deceptive or manipulative 'ninja editing' of private conversation messages.
