Given that FAQ/Sticky topics often become quickly and woefully outdated very quickly, this leads to them often becoming significantly less helpful as time goes on. If stickied topics had the ability to be editted indefinitely past the 1 hour window, this could probably fix many of the issues associated with them(outdated info, new info needed mostly).

I know this has been brought up before, and I want to say it’s something the admins have stated they would look into at some point.

Could be wrong though. I have slept since then.

I've thought about suggesting the same for a thread's latest post; the limit is to prevent people from causing trouble for later posters, but by definition the most recent post doesn't have any later posters (if it didn't, it wouldn't be the most recent one!).

The edit limit is in place to stop people from trying to sneak a TOU violation in just before the topic archives. There might be other reasons as well, but I've heard that one cited as the main reason.

But since sticky topics don't archive, that point is moot for them.

I don't recall seeing that before, and I've been a gamefaqs member as long as you (give or take a few days). In addition, trolls can simply wait until a thread has 499 posts and then post a TOU violation as #500, autolocking it.

Then again, I usually hang out on boards for older systems, so more often than not an hour passes between a post and its response.

Oh yes, I'm signing this as many times as possible.

...which is one, I guess. >_>

Posts in a locked thread can be marked for moderation. Posts in an archived thread can only be deleted by admins, or the poster. Bit of a difference there.
