Default Override vB's edit funtions

In the GARS settings you have the following option:
Ignore vB's edit time limit restriction for content

Is there any way you can add an option something like this:
Ignore vB's edit function so posters can edit posts

I have my registered users set up in the usergroup so they can not edit there own post. I can explain why but rather then make this long I will not. But I would like it so that if a user post anything in the GARS forum that it will override my vB settings so the users can edit the post.

I added it as an issue in the tracker. I saw no place to put it as a request. I hope that is fine.

Has this been implemented yet or should I put this in the bug tracker?

It was in, however the setting applies to all posts so I closed it. In other words, it should already function that way.

I hate to tell you this, but it does not already function this way as you stated in the previous post.

I just tested this theory.

I created a post on my forum as a registered user (I registered users set to a 15 minute edit period on their post).

I waited for 15 minutes after I posted and I was not allowed to edit on the posts.

This is why I would like to have the GARS override the vB options or at least be given the option to override the vB options.

Should I submit another ticket on this in the bug tracker?

Ill check back into the code once I can get it up and running. I set time aside to do this, but once I got to it, It looked fine.

I appreciate it. I have users now that would like to make corrections or additions to some of the articles that they have submitted but since I have set registered users to a 15 minute time limit for editing they can not do this. So what I am asking is please do not forget to look into this.
