It used to be that I could edit or delete any post I left. Now it seems like I can only edit or delete it for a short time and then all those options go away. Is there any way I can edit my own message or delete it at any time?

You can edit your post up to 30 minutes after submission and only if it hasn't been replied to. After that, you need to contact us and request a change.

Dave,

Just wondering why you did that. After all, if I am the one who wrote it, why can't I be allowed to change or delete it at any time, just like the old way did?

What's the reasoning behind the new restriction?

Once submitted, a post becomes the property of the Café and we reserve the right to decide whether or not a post should be deleted.

In addition, if you edit a post, subsequent replies which have already been made may no longer apply or make sense. Most members wouldn't think to check all the other posts after making a change. We have a staff of people that do that function automatically.

So whenever someone submits a routine, finesse, etc., the Café owns it? The Café can disseminate that sort of information however they want? Is there a privacy statement of some sort guaranteeing that information posted here will not be used in another form (book, website, etc.) without the express permission of a potential copyright holder? What if a copyright holder posts a routine here at the Café and later wants it removed? Would the Café respect the wishes of that creator in this regard? Since google does seem to pick up posts here at the Café, the concern seems a legitimate one.

Please READ the rules for more information

In addition, postings made on this website are considered to be contributions (donations) and given to this site free of charge, and as such automatically become the publishing property of The Magic Café, Steve Brooks and/or Steve Brooks Magic. No kind of royalties, fees or other monetary considerations of any kind are promised, expressed or implied to authors of said postings. Members who make such postings do so of their own free will and understand that posting here is no different then contributing/donating an article to a magic magazine, which then holds the copyright to the article (once a post is made, we are not under any obligation to remove said posting, but do still reserve the right to remove any postings that are in conflict with our policies or violate any laws).

However, that is not to say you do not own the intellectual property rights to perhaps an original idea or concept contained within said post/article (which you of course reserve the right to market at some later date) you may be discussing here, the Café simply owns that particular article being posted, and may freely use as we see fit any said article/post in any projects (now or in the future) associated with The Magic Café, Steve Brooks and/or Steve Brooks Magic be it on or off this website. This is usually the case with any message board (i.e; Magic Talk, The Genii forum, Magic Bunny, KJ, etc).

In that light, you can understand why we do not want members posting articles that have been taken from other message boards on the net. Taking a small portion of a post, or quoting is a different matter of course.

That said, if you are really concerned about your material, it's probably not a good idea to post it on The Magic Café or anywhere else in cyberspace.

In no event shall either The Magic Café, Steve Brooks, Steve Brooks Magic or its affiliated or related entities be responsible or liable to any person or entity whatsoever (including, without limitation, persons who may use or rely on such data/materials, information or recommendations obtained from this site, or persons to whom such data/materials may be furnished) for any loss, damage (whether actual, consequential, punitive or otherwise), injury, claim, liability or other cause of any kind or character whatsoever based upon or resulting from any data/material provided by or obtained from this site; whether resulting from errors in or omissions from such material, any use of such material by third party, the content of any such material or otherwise.

Please know that we will fully cooperate with any law enforcement agency or court orders requesting or directing us to disclose the identity of anyone posting or transmitting any unlawful, obscene, scandalous, defamatory, threatening, libelous, pornographic, profane, inflammatory, or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law.

Please know that the above rules are not up for debate or discussion. When you become a member of The Magic Café you agree to all the rules and policies we have here and it is your responsibility to know and understand these rules. Further, we (The Magic Café/Steve Brooks Magic) reserve the right to change or ammend these rules at any time and with no notice given. Thank you. Smile
There is nothing that remains so constant as change. Don't end up like concrete, all mixed up and permanently set. Smile
