I recommend we change the maximum allowable time to re-edit posts to 5 or 10 minutes.

I Think it should stay as it is.
I think that none moderators should go through the moderators before suggesting how a thread is run.

hence this area for suggestions.

here's what happens when the edit window is too large:

Scenario 1:
poster A gives an opinion.

poster B gives theirs.

poster A makes poster B regret having wrote that remark.

poster B edits thier post, removing the statements that made them look like a jackass. lol


scenario 2:
poster A gives opinion.

poster B asks a dumb question.

poster A answers it.

poster B deletes dumb question.

poster C reads the thread and now can't tell what poster A or B are talking about!


5-10 minutes is standard edit time in other forums. the window here is what? 30 minutes? too long, IMO. people should think more before hitting that 'continue' button.

maybe shortening up the window would encourage this...and honesty.

I agree with Ed the non moderator. Editing should not be abused like it has been.

We are not writing any college papers here...requiring many drafts and some periods of shelf time inbetween. The threads are more like...dialogue...only a little better; you can say something and once the words are 'out there'...there is no 'unsaying' them. Editing shouldn't be used to go into a post and restructure it, or edit it in such a way as to lose the original intent.

If a member has a bonafide handicap, either a substantial processing deficit, or other handicap that interferes with posting...then I think individual accomodations for editing post time should be available.

well andy, if posts haven't been deleted and severely altered from original, you might have been able to prove my hypothetical scenarios as B.S.

but since there is no longer any evidence proving it to be B.S. then you don't really have a case, do you.

I can't tell you how many times, I've read thru a thread, see your long reply to someone...then 4 people after you comment on your remarks, only for you to go back and delete the post and put " " in it's place.

"It's my perrogative." you said. ok, but it's my perrogative to see your actions as deceptive and ass-covering. it's my perrogative to request a change and a vote for a reduction of edit time.



the only B.S. I be smellin is coming from your posts that are edited 20 minutes after the fact.
