You can always email one of the mods who, time permitting, will do the job for you. I volunteer Mooly!

Hit the report post button, it's easier than email route. I vote for Mooly too.

We're trying to maintain the integrity and meaning of the threads as they develop, this is why we do not permit unlimited editing privileges to members. If there is a critical mistake or something that needs to be clarified you should simply report the offending post to moderation, we're really quite happy to help if asked nicely..

Mooly perhaps put it best.

My whole message was lost when I was asked to log in again. I really don't have time for that.

The ability to edit the first post indefinitely by the OP is great, but is it possible to allow the management of the attachments too? For some of the development threads it would be nice to be able to put not just a link to a post containing an attachment but rather to directly add / update attachments to the first post. Is this capability possible?

So why not just extend the editing period a little longer like 12 hours?
Or limit to 4 hours. Sometimes I can't get pics or find links etc.

It can be frustrating to do over.

I am not saying to keep it open for ever. More time is helpful for everyone.

It shouldn't hinder discussion, AND it may limit a bit of flaming if someone
points out something you didn't notice and can fix it with out Mod help.

Makes everyone life easier.

4 hours is good to get stuff done.

Thanks,

Why not indefinitely edit all of your posts... There should be no limit, this is an informational hobby website.

You might want to consider what that might mean to the posts after the edited one.

We have. That's why it's set at 30 minutes.

After that, contact us.

But that's what I'm talking about - this is not brain surgery, this is not a juried philosophy or political debate. Why not let people fix their own typos and the like?

Fixing typos is not the problem.

Consider what the consequences of having unlimited or extended edit time are, even a few hours. If you post again, I'm going to ask you to consider it again. That's the politest I can be.

6L6, you're a member I respect. Think about what you are saying, the backroom has many times.

Cheers.
