Default Edit Time

I just noticed that the time limit for editing is a paltry 15 minutes, I thought the previous standard of 30 minutes was just a bit short. I'd like to see the option to edit retained for an hour or at least a half hour.

I often significantly refine my posts over the course of a half hour or so as additional thoughts occur. This I think is often more coherent than posting multiple messages where the context in this ADD plagued world may have already been lost.

I know this is not a bug, but a choice..

Thanks, Cal.. Very much appreciated as it helps me put my thoughts in order when things don't quite read the way I intended them to - usually sometime after I posted..

Why is it so short?

On other forums you can edit a post of yours months later, with it noting an edit date/time stamp. There are longer threads that get indexed back to other posts made by people, and for example a For Sale thread with multiple items can be edited by the seller with a SOLD for individual items when they've gone so it saves looking through long threads. Or realising later, after the time limit you've spelled something wrong etc and can correct.

Never saw the point at all for the limitation.

Hello

Why there is a time limit for editing of 30 minutes only ?

I am french speaking and a bit dislectic, so writing in english are more complicate for me, not only because of writing errors but also because it is hard for me to explain correctly my ideas, so I have to edit lot of times most of my posts, and sometime I find out a corrections to do only an our later.

Is it possible to extend time limit for editing to much longer times ?

Thank you

Bye

Gaetan

Here's how I do it:
Almost every post I make is composed in a text editor. Only when I'm perfectly happy with it, its get copied into the forums' message box.

Hello

I do that too.

But I have some problem of concentration in text reading, maby because of my age, so most of the time I do not see the errors or the wrong terms in my explanations, so I need many times of reading or by reading the reply showing
that I was not clear in my explanations.

But why anyway there is a time limit for editing ?

Thank

Bye

Gaetan
