Could the edit button be visible only on our comments and those we have rights?
The necessary I do right away, the possible... takes longer.
You can't ask a software engineer/developer/programmer if some feature or change is possible...
The answer is always yes, it's just a matter of time and priority and frustration and every other factor besides a parameterless "possible".
Not that related, but it reminds me of a multiday planning session we did with multiple teams. At the end we're supposed to all give our 1-5 confidence factor and if the average vote is too low it's back to the drawing board.
Well this particular release we had way too much work trying to be crammed into way too little time...
The project managers and other non-developer types were getting frustrated with those votes, and one of them grabbed the mic and said, "What if time was unlimited? What would your confidence factor be if time wasn't a concern?"
And the whole room got kind of dumbfounded immediately, lots of silence and muttered wat's.
If time wasn't a concern we can literally do anything, the whole point of this planning and vote are regarding what we think we can accomplish in a given time frame. Without time it's meaningless.
