    Pretty much

    but that's the way it is now, isn't it?

    It's hard to learn anything when you always feel the need to be the expert.

    I agree that the edit time is a bit short (I think even 10 or 15 minutes would be nicer) but I can TOTALLY see why it would be a bad deal to extend it...lots of messy communications, people changing their minds and their posts and causing hosts of misunderstandings.

    Try using an email draft then. That's almost always how I do it.

    I use google email and don't have issues when copying/pasting to here.

    Often neglected verses on tithing: "‘If, therefore, a man wishes to redeem part of his tithe, he shall add to it one-fifth of it. ‘For every tenth part of herd or flock, whatever passes under the rod, the tenth one shall be holy to the LORD. ‘He is not to be concerned whether it is good or bad, nor shall he exchange it; or if he does exchange it, then both it and its substitute shall become holy. It shall not be redeemed.’” -Lev 27:32-33.

    Not to mention the fracas in the Streams of Consciousness and Thought thread every time the post count reaches a multiple of 10,000. People who don't make the (x times 10,000) post are deleting their posts for the next five minutes to get their late posts back up to the winning one. If the edit time were extended to HOURS... I shudder to think about the carnage that would ensue.

    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.
    Use the Advanced editor and 'Preview Post' until you get it like you want it. Then, 'Submit Reply'.

    It really is our responsibility to proof-read our posts, etc. ( i.e. - get it like we want it ) before we post.



    The race-against-the-five-minutes - for me - usually happens when I post something - look at it - read it - and, somehow it did not turn out like I had in mind - even after using 'Preview Post' and proof-reading it before posting it. Even 'Preview Post' sometimes does not "do justice" for the final post - because, it does not render the post "exactly" like it will look when it is finally posted. ( The width changes - which can alter what it will actually look like in the posted version. )



    If you should post - only to discover that you will then need a lot more than five minutes to "make it right" -- copy what you have so far - delete the post - and start over with what you copied.

    If you hit the wrong button and too many corrections need to be made or you are not sure about it, simply copy your post and then DELETE IT. Then paste your post back into the text box, and carefully proof read it before posting it again with corrections. Or not. Maybe you will have changed your mind entirely and decide against posting it at all

    I beg to differ. Even an hour is crazy. Four is ludicrous

    If you knew how it worked then you could PM instead. Besides, the idea of allowing edits until someone posts is not fair either. I could spend an hour composing a response and in that time the OP could have changed their post ten times without my knowing it

    Yeah, I figgered that copy/delete/start over thing out of necessity
