Default Time Limit on Editing Posts

Sorry if there is already a thread for this, but my computer is rather old and slow, and I am experiencing more and more of that phenomenon myself these days. One suggestion I have is would you consider increasing the time we have to edit our posts from 10 minutes to 20 or 30?

I poured over my last post to make sure it was okay before and after I hit THE button. Oops! I spotted a mis-spelling I hadn't seen before. Dayum! Okay let's fix it--after all I can surely look all stupid enough on my own without the typos. Crap! My 10 minutes was up!

Done...

The "Edit Time Limit" has been bumped to 20 minutes...

I was a little hesitant to do this...

One thing I'd HATE to see is a member intentionally changing their post after someone else has already responded to it...Opening up the time limit to a longer duration can be an invitation to deceit...

I don't see that with the crew we have now, so I'm open to bumping it up...

I'll revisit at some later point in time...

Thank you and yes-I understand your point about dishonesty. Sad that we have to think like that. Well I'll be here no mater the time lmit, but it is very cumbersome to someone like me with big time arthtitic hands.

At any rate--thank you very much! It is appreciated! If others wish it the other way I'll surely understand...

I have the same complaint.
I often post at work, and if called away I come back to poor spelling or poor wording I cannot fix. Often, when doing research , by the time I find a link to backup my point, the time is out.

As for deceit, yes but if you quote the poster in your response, that cannot be edited.
If we must have a timed interval to post, then why not 30 minutes?

This works like finding a bag of money...You might not start your day doing something wrong, but opportunity knocked and some will take advantage...

By the time ends on a half hour editing period, many posts could've passed and the edit would look to nullify anything afterward...I've seen it on previous forums...

Tip...When creating a very long post, I like to open up Notepad and write it first, then copy/paste it to the forum in one shot so I have my ducks in a row...

Also, you can always quote yourself and extrapolate in the following post...

Yes Yes but at work time is limited. And yes I've seen what your are saying bout about taking advantage But they always get caught by someone and that reveals the liars and cheats pretty well.
Meanwhile, thanks for the extension. It will help. And those who use it to cheat,,,; will be revealed. Count on it.

Ah, I think I got it. So if I said I have a 10-inch penis and 42 tells the forum it's only an embarrassing 3 inches, I won't be able to change my post and come off like a liar.

Good call.
