Users can always edit their submission #598
Problem you are facing
I think this model makes the review system even more flexible. I want to point out that in the long run some "submission modifications history" would be of interest, but this would require major changes to the database layout and software architecture. Thus, I want to limit this issue to the possibility to modifications at any time.
"Allow submitters to modify their submission even between CfP close and acceptance" could be a good option to introduce, agreed. (That is the only time when submitters can't edit their submission: they are frozen for review, and upon acceptance become editable again.)
I think introducing settings per field would be overkill – I'm hesitant to make pretalx settings even more stuffed than they are already.
Regarding the modifications history: We do want something like that, and it won't take the amount of changes you suggest. We're pretty close to that point already, it's just never been a priority so it keeps getting pushed back.
Oh, really? Cool!
I think you have a good grasp on whether this feature is useful or not. I can live without it. I prefer to have it. Thanks for your work!
