I would like unlimited time to... Can't Post

... edit my posts. Can it be changed?

Pretty please?

So you mean... [In reply to] Can't Post

...a year from now, you'd like to go back and change your opinion in a post that's had 500 responses...Wink

Heh! I'm afraid the system was set up with a set time limit for editing, I think it's 15 minutes after clicking "post reply".

However: there ARE several friendly Admins on these Boards, who would be more than happy (most of the time, at least!) to edit a post for you, after that time limit. Just PM one of us with the location/URL of the post, and what needs to be changed! (And you can check Who's Online to see if one of us is handy, if the post needs immediate changes.)

Hope this is helpful! Smile

Well yeah [In reply to] Can't Post

If I find an old typo, or if I find a typo that's two hours old, I'd like to fix it. I appreciate the info about mod help, but if you guys feel like it please consider changing the edit time. Sometimes typo's escape me for a while and end up biting me on the bum a little bit later. Wink

Edit: I wouldn't use it to change an opinion, that would be easily discovered with an edit time-stamp anyway. Angelic

Intentions [In reply to] Can't Post

They can't only consider your intentions, but all the possible intentions, some of them more nefarious. For example, trolls can post something provocative, then edit it to look reasonable after some number of posts, making others look reactionary and foolish.

However, I have missed that one final typo edit at times by just a few seconds. 20 minutes would be nice. 30 would be better. :) Some forums allow unlimited edits until there is another reply and then the time limit kicks in. Considering how fast this forum gets replies, that would probably be ineffectual, but it wouldn't hurt to allow it.
