First I tried to edit a post I did few minutes ago and the button for editing was not present.

Second, I was editing a post I made couple of minutes after I posted and when I hit the save, it gave me an error.
I went back to the thread and the edit button was gone.

Is this a new policy?

Stopping editing the post after a period of time might be good to avoid people changing it too much, but at least give us some more minutes to correct possible errors.

Thanks,

Carlos.

Hi, the answer was posted HERE.

There is a ten minute window set by Hawk. My advice to members is to do as I try to do and preview your post and reread it before posting it, to make sure you are happy with it. Even with my doing that, I sometimes have to edit it when I have links or copy and paste in them but usually within a minute or so of posting them, since I had already viewed them and they looked ok but unfortunately for me somehow changed when I posted them or I missed something that needed to be changed.

I am sure Hawk will read this and possibly he can add his reply to your complaint.

Thanks for the clarification.

I personally think that 10 minutes is a short window.
Also, it should not expire after I had initiated an editing during the allotted time.
I am member of several forums of different natures and subjects, some do have a time limit, but I don't recall any with such a short window.

Please note that this is a suggestion, not a complain.
I can live with whatever policy Tim sets, just think that a longer window would be beneficial to the members.

Thanks,

Carlos.

A 20-minute window might be better.

I dont know why a person would need 20 min's to edit a post but I'll think about it and let you know.

A lot of people (you might be surprised) browse the forum while they are doing other things (or are supposed to be doing other things... like work :D ). Also sometimes they may save a post and not think double-check something right away, after the doubts creep in.

Ok over the past few days I've made some changes. One of them was for members editing their posts.
It's now set up that when a member makes 500 posts they will be promoted to Senior Member and will have NO time limit on editing their posts. If you look under your name to the left of your post you will see that it either says member or Senior Member. If you have less then 500 posts it will say member, if you have over 500 posts and it still says member and not Senior Member then you need to make one post to activate the Senior Member status. Members under 500 posts will have 20 min's to edit their posts.

Are there other benefits of being a 'senior member'? I mean like AARP, or going to Wendy's (I better jack up my posting activity!!!)....Hmmm ,,, I'm guessing you'd all like my posts to be accurate too so maybe I'll be a junior member for life..... Slackers like me are always looking for a free coffee!

If you're thinking I just have a screw loose, its just that the time it took for Sherry to get her green card has made me a blabbering idiot!!

Still hoping for that perfect post!!!!,

Hawk,

The general concensus here is that your cooking is not that great. I think you are going to see a decline in posts for the next few weeks until people forget about your threat...... or perhaps you'll see a lot more new members signing up with a great deal of knowledge on subjects here at WOF....

Running for my life......

JoeinMI

hmmmm. Just in case I'm wrong, what's on that senior member menu?
