I understand. You could always makes a second, corrected post referring to a mistake.
If not twice a day, you could ask a mod to do the editing.

Time is limited because it might generate disputes:
“But you wrote in that post…”
“Me? No, I wrote…see here: <edited post#>"
“I’m sure something else was written yesterday…”
“No, it wasn’t…”
"You're a ..."

Sometimes editing for a novice is a bit difficult specially when they are not familiar with the site, but for the familiar they easily edit their post in just a minute, and sometimes other wanted to add more info in their post after a day later.

I know some forums where they automatically merge double posts. Wouldn't be a good idea for that to be applied here as well?

A feature where people can add to their post (ebay style) without changing the original content would be great IMO. We'll be looking to get a raft of new and improved features with the next forum upgrade.

Well, I am sorry if I submit it twice because I thought I never send it before.

Nope, i meant exactly what i said. When someone double posts the content of the two messages are automatically merged. That seems like a very good idea IMO and like i said, other forums are applying it successfully. The automerged double post still bumps the topic it is posted in, but spares everyone else of viewing that user's avatar and signature twice in a row.

LOL, some sensible characters here. You have the option of reading the text only. I'm never bothered about that, grammar mistakes used to bother me but not anymore, nowadays I found them funny. You have to keep in mind that people understand that English might not be your mother tongue.

It is true that sometimes you say silly things and want them deleted. Too late. Comfort yourself with the fact that even men of genius have stupid thoughts at least once a day.

Gotcha. Is that stock with vBulletin 4 perhaps?
