    Could we please have the Edit Option available for 24 hours after creating a post?

    Thanks,

    I had increased it to two hours. I just upped it to four hours, and am still thinking about the longer options. My fear is that someone will get angry about something and edit out a whole day's worth of posts, leaving any replies orphaned.

    yes I agree, and I have seen that happen on many occasions on other forums...

    Another forum I once ran was ruined that way. I was allowing those who had been there a long time, and with the most posts, to edit their posts at any time, and someone spent the night editing out everything she had posted over a four-year period. She wasn't even angry - she just wanted to erase herself from the Internet, although she was using a handle, and ruined the forum in the process. I shut it down, as she had been one of my most prolific posters, and nothing made any sense anymore.
