Editing Posts?
 
Is there a specific time-frame available, in which posts can be edited?
As I go back through my lousy typing: I often find errors that I'd like to be able to correct...
Only I can't! :facepalm:
Can anybody tell me the amount of time given to edit posts, and perhaps why that limit exists?
Thanks!

I think its the # of people who have viewed the post--may not be a strict time frame.

I know I've edited mine after someone has replied so it isn't that.

thanks!
This is the first place I've been, where there's a limitation to the ability to edit a post... :facepalm:

And I'm pretty famous for my lack of TyPiNg skills! :D

The edit window is 120 minutes and if you need an assist after that you can either report the problem post or message a moderator. we can unlock the post for edits. The reason for the limitation is that we've had a few instances where someone removed several posts from a discussion leaving the rest of the thread without that content as a reference. It ruins discussion continuity - sort of like reading a book where pages were randomly torn out ;)

Two hours: got it! :thumb:

We've seen that in other forums as well... you might end up wondering exactly what prompted a particular comment.
Those of us who are really anal-retentive just HATE to see our typing mistakes indelibly burned into History... :nonono:
