    Extending Time to edit a post

    Right now we get 5 minutes. Could this be increased to 10 minutes. I've found 5 minutes has stumped me on a number of occasions. Sometimes you need a minute or two to reflect on what you just posted.

    Am I the only one who feels this way?

    Re: Extending Time to edit a post

    I agree. After submitting a post recently, I decided to add a picture to illustrate my point. By the time I found the picture, inserted the link in the post and hit the submit button time had expired to edit. Another 5 minutes would have helped. Personally, I don't see why there has to be a time limit on editing. Sometimes spelling or grammar errors aren't apparent immediately, but jump out at you after you've read the post a few times.

    I agree with both of the Bills. If there has to be a time limit on editing posts, 10-15 minutes gives a little more flexibility. Don't know if it's possible but eliminating the time limit altogether in For Sale or Trade would let the offeror update a list of available products without posting further down in the thread.

    Add my name to the list. Several times I have posted and then wanted to add/delete subject matter,or a picture.

    Bill, you should create a poll for this question, I agree its should be more time or unlimited ( if impossible)

    I think a poll is a good idea, but I think it should be left up to the admins.

    The program may not give them the flexibility to adjust the time. If it does there may only be a limited number of choices. ie. 5 minutes, 15 minutes unlimited. The poll should reflect the available options.

    I think a poll would be a good idea though. The forum after all, is for the users. We should be able to have some input on what we'd like to see.

    Bill, I absolutely agree it needs to be extended.

    Honestly, I'm curious why there is a limit at all. Did something happen in the past that made this a requirement on the forum?

    If memory serves. There was a incident in the past. Therefore the consensus was to give editing a time limit. That is the way I remember it.
    quality creates its own demand

    Ah, I see.

    Well I'm not going to quit being a member of the site because I can't edit a day or so later, ha ha. I was just curious.
