    The new editing time-out is a bit stingy. Most mistakes aren't spotted until too late, which leads to extra posts for corrections.

    Any chance it could be made a little longer?

    Or at least let it be editable indefinately after a post.

    After a quick look around I can't see an option to adjust the editing window, but I will keep looking and we might be able to extend it slightly. It will certainly not be indefinite however, sorry.

    I demand the right to go back and change things if I post something stupid. Even years later.

    I completely agree.

    I proof read everything I write, but typos and grammatical errors sometimes get missed. I often don't notice until it's too late.

    It seems some of the permissions have gone out of whack.

    I can make changes and will try and find time over the weekend to do so.

    What I need to be able to do is make a change to everyone's permissions at the same time.

    Everyone that is except Rataca. :D

    Not sure any amount of editing can help his posts. :p

    I promise from this day forward to spell check all of my new posts.

    I will endeavour to use punctuation where necessary, as it vastly improves the readability of my work and I'm sure it makes a difference to how seriously I am taken.

    Lastly I'd just like to say that Simon is awesome. Handsome, smooth and definitely the man all men want to be.

    Note to self, quote the thing i am correcting so you cant use Admin sorcery. :p

    I didnt think you could stealth edit though, learn something new every day about forum permissions.

    Hello everyone.

    I'm not online that often, so what is the amount of time we currently have to edit?

    It used to be 24 hours I if I recall correctly.

    As I said earlier the setting are out of whack at the moment.

    It's Rataca's fault. The system tried to decipher one of his posts and it melted some wires on the server.
