Edit Option

Recommended Posts

Requesting an edit option or actually change to the current forum edit option to unlimited time.

The current edit option lets you edit your thread/reply within a short time.

Un-limiting the time to use the edit option will benefit everyone, from editing the OP instead of filling a thread with multiple replies, to correcting errors.

They expressed a limit helps keep people from back-editing old threads to change their meaning and content greatly, which creates confusion and mayhem etc.

I think only extending the edit time a bit more than a few minutes would help. Most edits for errors happen within a short window. Anything beyond, its just too late to bother, as the internetz have taken hold of the info by then ;)

Exactly.

I'd say extending the time-window to "unlimited but until a new post hits" would be fine, but then again, just double check your post and there's no need to edit it to begin with.
If you created a thread with something like a list of bugs or anything and need something changed later, feel free to PM me about that. I can edit it for you.
