Can the editing clock please be moved back from 5 minutes to 10 minutes?
I think its fine as is, if you need 10 minutes to edit then you should be more careful in the first place.
Five minutes is more than enough time to read your post, find errors, and correct them, even for a terribly slow typist such as myself. I'd be in favor of setting it to one minute, because people already can post, see responses, and rewrite history, as it were.
Maybe use the Preview Post function if you want to check how everything looks before releasing it onto the fat-arsed medium that is the interweb. I'm happy with five minutes and wouldn't want to see it go much lower.
It's fine. More then enough, and I only type 45 WPM
Not to long ago it was set at 2 minutes.
Only!!! I can't even think that fast sometimes.
The key is to not think, just type.
and thats why we need the edit feature.
EDIT: Got it!
I don't know about you guys, but when I'm jumping out of an airplane at 30,000 feet (9144 meters), I want the biggest parachute I can get.
I think the time is just about right.
I think the time period is fine as well. If you can't catch spelling mistakes and the like within 5 minutes then you should have to put up with the "Last edited by" tag which gets appended.
The system is fine - no need for a change.
Yeah, but does it take you ten minutes to hit the ground?
BTW When do the subscription emails get sent? Immediately or after 5 minutes?
My request would be for members to use that 5 minutes you propose to think before they post.
Hence your post count.
My thoughts exactly Does any other member even come close to Mad Jew's post count?
Five minutes is ample time for frivolity and repentance to embrace.
Actually Mad Jew is second on the list.
But not for long!
i certainly think 5 minutes is enough time. you can always go back and edit it still later, it just shows that you created an edit. in fact the one or two minutes was fine as well. if you need to go back and edit after five minutes, thats fine, but we'll know thats all.
i really don't see what the big deal is though?
I dunno, dmw007's posts/day is getting close...
exactly - what's wrong with having a little bit of text saying you edited the post? it happens all the time and if its really something stupid, you're more likely to get it quoted and commented on. So then you wouldn't be able to edit that anyway.
So the timer shouldn't really be an issue - and if you're that concerned about it, select Preview Post before you submit and read the post through once before you submit.
The text saying a post has been edited; is that customisable in vBulletin? Just wonderin'.
