Good Morning:
I was looking at a message which I had posted only last night after dinner, and realized I had failed to edit some spelling & grammer mistakes.

the system says I cannot because of being outside the ALLOWED time frame to edit a message

that is ridicilous & foolish criteria. Is this restraint being corrected/removed anytime soon??? (Come on editing, especially for the sake of clarification or readability... a time frame... that is a SERIOUS server flaw)

Is this being addressed?
Jeff

You have the opportunit to read, edit, and confirm your post before it is posted on the website. You are allowed 6 hours after you make a post to edit it. I believe this promotes responsibility in one's posts. You don't have the leisure to post whatever you feel and then go and change/delete it later. What you say is going to stay there and you must be responsible for it.

Simple editing for clarification can be a nuisance when not allowed, but why did you not review and edit your post when it was first made?

I probably sound like my mother as well.

By the way, Ronin1966, you misspelled Editing. You only have about 4 hours left to correct it.

Good Morning:

No actually spelling Editing with two I's was deliberate on my part... (whatever one has to do to get attention especially with a SERVER FLAW )

And respectfully, hopefully politely I will again propose this artificial time limit for editing a post... it IS a flaw!!! Please consider (reconsider?) enlarging the "window" of time permitted for more editing...

If an initial thread posting requires changing depite the authors best intentions & efforts... the artifical time frame is (again with ~respect~) a misguided idea.

Earnestly,
Jeff

All you have to do to get attention is to make a post. There is no need for tricks and gimmickery.

Respectfully and politely I again say this time limit promotes responsibility in posting.

If an initial thread posting requires changing despite the authors best intentions & efforts...the author either needs to spend more time forming his post or clarify later on.

It does no justice for people who respond and then the initial post is changed.

I am by no means the final authority on rules on this website. I am merely stating my opinion on the issue raised.

I am of the opinion that editing should not be allowed period.
You have the chance to edit when you press 'submit'. If you dont take the time to re read your post then it is your problem. Spelling mistakes are not serious enough a crime to need editing so crucially. And any other mistakes, like clarification, well you should have thought about it in the first place. When you hand in an essay for school or a report for work you dont get to edit it after you hand it in.

Dont be complacent and dont be lazy, and take care over what you type, and you should be fine!

Sure you do...it's called a 'first draft'.
Perhaps a better analogy would be conversation. You can jump into the flow, and later regret what you said. Forums are weird because in one sense they are like conversation...dynamic...a stream with a flow. And on the other hand, once written, words are permanent, static markers...a record.

Plenty of times I have tried to be thoughtful, or precise, and afterwards realized that I conveyed other meaning.

Don't take away my editing timeframe!
