    Post Edit after posting

    When I post a thread or an reply in a thread in this great forum, there is a time period after submit where I can edit the posting. Currently it's a very short period, 15-30 minutes or something like that. Would you consider letting me have longer time where I have the ability to correct my spelling errors or not-so-great formulations

    I second that notion. I can edit as much as I want, but in other forums I can't stand being unable to edit my posts after a certain time period.

    I'm with you both on this one, I hate editing limits (not that I knew there was one in place here, it doesn't affect the mods) - I occasionally still find typos days later! Hopefully when Mickey sees this one it'll be fixed!

    I believe Mr. Dooley that I mentioned in a post in another thread how sometimes the mods can't see the forest for the trees. I can still edit posts I made days/weeks/years ago, so I was completely unaware of this restriction.

    On Flyer Talk, another vBulletin forum, I can edit my posts forever.

    I vote for removal of time limits on member post editing.

    Yeah, spot on.. I think only one of the other boards I use has an editing time limitation, and it drives me insane there.. everywhere else lets me edit forever, so I think Mickey should have no problems with this change - I tried to do it myself, but it seems we don't have the access for it with the ModCP.

    No, problem. Thank you (all) very much for this update.
