Unable to edit posts

Postby Russell » Fri Dec 19, 2014 6:37 pm

Almost every post I do I have to edit for spelling errors. However, it's now very common for me to post something and the edit option isn't there.

Any ideas?
If you can't talk about the problem, how are you ever going to even start talking about the solution?

Hi Russell, had the same issue myself and I think it may be time limited.
No doubt a Mod will explain.

It is time limited due to someone throwing their toys out of the pram and deleting all their posts making the thread useless.

Following an incident where a user deleted a shed load of his posts leaving quite a mess over various parts of the forum, I set the time limit on post editing.
It was intended as a temporary measure and perhaps the time limit is too short, so thank you for bringing it up...

Pi put it rather more succinctly than I and he can probably type quicker as well.

If an edit is important then just ask one of the mods to help.

Or type the post somewhere else then copy 'n' paste it to here.

I have amended from 5 mins edit window to 30 mins. Hopefully that's a reasonable balance.
