    I don't like that if someone requotes a post of someone's, they can totally change that post to make it say what THEY want it to say..Like this, for example:

    I'm sending this to you quickly, so that you just might have a chance to do that.
    Haha, oops. No, I am sure everyone knew what I meant, even though I made an error and did not catch it. Ever since I reinstalled Windows, my grammar check has not been operational. I do miss it.

    See, we all need more time with just about every post.

    They don't even give you 5 full minutes. Many times I've gone back after 3 minutes, and the edit time was gone..

    Maybe admin could just add a couple of minutes?

    It is true that once five minutes pass your time is up. You do not get one extra second. As soon as you post, it says you posted one minute ago. From then to sixty seconds, you can edit your post with no little note attached to your post saying you edited it, and giving the time, which happens after the first sixty seconds pass until the five minute mark is reached. Longer posts take longer to proof read, but are also less likely to be read by others, depending on the subject matter and the people involved. I generally like to keep my posts short and to the point

    Anything less than at least 15 minutes more would simply be a waste of time resetting.

    It may say three minutes ago when it is actually one second short of four minutes ago, so by the time you make corrections, if it takes you longer than sixty one seconds, yes, by the time you go to repost the corrections, your time will have expired

    I proofread books for people. And, trust me, you can sometimes go back over a passage three or four times, and STILL miss something.

    I've found spelling errors and missing words in books that I've purchased...

    Did you guys notice that I even made a mistake in my quoting Ugly? (the word, "experimentation") I didn't notice it myself until long past time to correct it.

    That's why we need 4-6 hours.






    Not.

    That's how I got started. I bought a friend's book for $22.50, and showed him 311 serious errors in it........ there were actually nearly 500 when the minor things were taken into account.

    I know. Especially because the mind automatically fills in many blanks and corrects mistakes (which works in our favor when other gloss over the mistake, too ). Also, when we write something, we can read it as if it we had written what we thought we had and repeatedly completely miss the error.

    I post on other forums unrelated to Christianity and some of them allow editing the first 24 hours. Four hours is not "INSANE".
    The best way to help others understand and experience God's love better is to understand and experience it better yourself.

    Understanding and experiencing God's love better everyday is the most important task for anyone who considers him/herself to be a Christian.


    Love without truth is deception. Truth without love is arrogance. God's love and God's truth balanced is God's wisdom.

    The more one promotes himself and/or his ideas, the less he cares about eternal life for others.

    Yes, I use the Preview Post a lot. But since humans are fundamentally imperfect, it sometimes takes more than 3 minutes to realize we made an error.
    And with the preview button right next to the post button, it's easy to hit the wrong one.

    That would work except that copy/paste from word processor to post window often inserts formatting errors, requiring laborious correction that often doesn't actually correct the problem.

    Yup.... haven't done it with books, but with group work at school.
    I remember us printing two of the pages four times before we finally got the last error out... which makes me wonder how many errors were left on the remaining pages

    PS: I recently finished reading 1984 ... sadly they only had the Norwegian edition at my library
    Somewhere in the book I suspect the original English word was "disjointed" (speaking disjointed)
    the Norwegian book said "leddløs" ... now ledd means joint, as in the body part .... leddløs would mean without joints .....

    I would say, allow edits until another user posts in the thread.

    So, if you posted to let me know of an error in my post, the very act of you posting would keep me from fixing it?
