New Post Edit Timer Implemented

Hi everyone!

We recently experienced several unexplained thread deletions in the forums. So as a possible workaround to prevent that from happening again, the site Admin has applied a 10 minute time limit rule to edits of all post submissions.

What this means is that each member has got 10 minutes to edit his/her new post(s) submission to make any corrections, add info, photos or links etc., then their post will be locked.

If/when the member decides to edit one of their posts after 10 minutes has passed, he/she will have to ask a Moderator or Admin to perform those post edits for them.

We hope the edit timer helps to solve an apparent problem with the site permissions configuration. This was probably the easiest method for the Admins... since nothing was actually fixed.

Please let us know how you feel about this restriction on edits...? Is 10 minutes enough time? Should the timer be adjusted higher? Lower? Is this a dumb idea? Got any better ideas? If you have any comments or suggestions please share them! :-)

Thanks!

Thanks!
I was wondering if you could edit your quotes, to keep from having the whole original message duplicated. And it looks like that won't be effected.

Yeah, quoted posts become part of a new post, so the same 10 minute edit limit applies.

Having the edit timer is what GC has had for years. Surprising this site did not have a timer until now, beings they have the same site owner.

with my dyslexia, and the SO many times i banged my head against something solid, not to mention brain attacks,[strokes]... i think moderators, or admin., are going to be rather busy--- --- --- --- --- --- [visual of busy signal]
sometimes i revisit a thread, well over many times.

No problem LedFTed! Mods don't have much to do around here anyway. Edit all ya want... if ya get tired of sending PMs we'll extend the timer or something. Maybe we can just skip that nonsense and vote ya in as a mod!?!? :-)

I have no problem with the 10 minute time and I noticed it was in effect yesterday. Most boards have a timer and I've been surprised this one did not.

I'll just have to start wearing my glasses and looking at the screen while I type. Oh, and proof it before I post. The auto-correct/spelling makes changes I don't notice. Actually, that could be a good excuse to use when I offer really bad advice to an unsuspecting poster.
