    John, who leads AMD's open-source strategy and posts on our forums as part of his AMD Linux work, has written over 5,600 posts in less than four years. This trumps even my 5,496 over the course of five years or that of the Phoronix Forums news-posting bot.
    Aaaaah... I see... THAT's why you're implementing it now

    j/k, thanks for that change, at long last.

    EDIT: might as well start abusing it...
    Have you considered having a minimum time window before posts can be edited? You know, so that blunders are available for all to see for a bit

    I've always wondered: why limit the edit time while you can recruit some community moderators?

    Personally I would prefer if you could change settings to your cookies, so premium users won't have to login to forums every time to see ads free articles.

    Except that very soon you'll lose test result graphs when AdBlock is detected and instead served awkward tables.

    It's not about ads blocking. It's about convenience for premium users.

    This would be very bad behaviour. Adblock saves bandwith and browser resource usage.
    A tip that "site and reviews are payed by ads, disable ad blocking please" set as background image underneath the ads would be much more valuable.
    Don't fight users.


    PS
    thanks for edit-button bugfix!

    Smooth move. Users will love Phoronix more that way.
