Could we please have the Edit Option available for 24 hours after creating a post?
Didn't @Ken Anderson change that a while back?
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.
I was scanning my posts on the Model Railroad Forum this morning, and found one that needed a slight correction.
It was dated 8-28-2018, and the edit option was still open, allowing me to correct the post!
Yes, even after 9 months, I was still able to edit my post!
I would like to see this Forum maintain its edit option for at least a week.
This forum was actually kept that way for a long time, but some people started writing posts and then deleting them after they had responses, making the whole thread confusing, so the editing time was changed, @Hal Pollner . However, either Ken or myself would always be able to make an edit for you if you needed that here.
Part of what i do, is look at thread titles, and fix spelling or other errors when i see them.
Because of SEO, and as a courtesy to other readers, all threads are supposed to have an explanatory title of what the thread is about, so when I find a thread that does not explain that, then I also re-title the thread so that it does comply.
So you won't grant me the courtesy of maintaining the edit option for 24 hours?
Then I hereby resign from the Forum.

It's set for four hours. I've tried raising it but that didn't work out. I'm sorry to lose you, and hope you change your mind at some point.
I've already changed my mind, Ken!
I'll never leave this happy, shiny little Forum!
