Anyways,

Me being a long time member here on BGR. I have always wondered, why is there such a limited amount of time to edit your own posts.

I do believe more time should me allowed

thanks

You would be better off PM'ing Midee1 or Torqque, the are the ONLY one's that could answer your question, so posing it here and bumping it will do you no good.

I do not have definite answers BUT I would guess that it is because of Pick 'EM contests and other things.

If there is ever something you want to change, just ask a mod or an admin, we will be glad to help if it is reasonable.

Another mod/admin may say something different, but that is my personal take, not the official BGR take.

I understand that. But I dont always feel like hunting someone down for when I make a type-o. Thats wasting mine and who's ever doing it's time. This is going on my 6th year and I have never had a definite answer.

Bumping the thread will do nothing.

I don't have answer for your question, and the only ones off the top of my head that can help you out is QQ, Beef, and/or Midee1.

I know that. Noone would reply to my thread, thus the comment. I figured I had better bring attention to myself, rather then be disrespected in a manner. Last I heard of Beef, he was in Australia. And Midee, well I have never really spoke to him. But really can everyone see where I'm coming from. BCA I'm sure you dont wanna have to go and fix everyone of my mistyped posts? I'm not asking for the answer or life or a stick of gold or anything ya know?

RB, the best suggestion is if your only issues is spell check, then download the qspell app to your desktop. It works great, and then you won't need to go back and edit.

What kind of time frame are you looking for?

Right now the parameters are set at 10 minutes to edit a thread title and 15 minutes to edit your posts. I would think in that amount of time you would be given plenty of opportunity to catch mistakes and edit them.

My opinion and this is strictly my opinion is that I wouldn't be a fan of setting the time limits to edit much longer than this.

Is there a negative to extending it? If not, then why not extend it? I agree with badman, I would like to see it.

The only negative that I can see is if someone posted something and started getting harassed about it and went back 45 minutes later and edited it out the it would just create an unnecessary argument with all the he said she said nonsense.

It's not extra trouble. It would take me just a couple of minutes to adjust the parameters. I'm just asking for a suggestion of the time adjustment so I can present it to the staff and see if it is something that we all agree upon.

Why would you have to actually PM ANYONE to explain a type-o? If it's that big of a deal, just correct what you said in another post.

Yeah, we've all been trying to figure out how to make the time correct. There is something wrong with the time period. Even if you set it to a time where the hour is correct, the minutes are still off. There's something in the software that needs to be reset.

Back in the day that was considered "post padding" and thats against the rules. Epically if it was double post.

But is it against this website's rules to double post? If it is, I'm in big trouble!

I think the edit time is fine the way it is. I have responded several times to posts, only to notice much later that the post to which I responded has been totally unwritten. Sometimes people post in haste, have second thoughts, and then "soften the blow." That's great but the longer the edit window, the greater the chance that responses will not match the prior posts.
