Why can't we edit our post?

Again why is it that we only get 5 minutes to edit post? Seriously that is retarded. I mean really we have holier than thou mods who get to go back and edit their post for typo's, misspelling and grammatical errors. Why is it the us regular folks are not given the same privileges?

big reason is FS threads. I know on other forums there has been some riled up over being able to edit FS threads. Is is really that hard just to read and reread a post before you post it?

Sometimes yes! A lot of people post from their phones and with predictive text and such things get mixed you and if your connection is slow you don't have time to edit it within the 5 min time period.

We used to be allowed to edit our post at anytime. And I didn't say it was a particular mod imposing the 5 minute rule but there is on a**hat that likes to abuse that power and likes to go and point out peoples typo's. It is crappy that he is allowed to edit his post at anytime but yet we are not allowed to, so he gets to make himself feel better by pointing out typo's!

Eh... I wouldn't let that ruin your day tho.

Misspellings give your post character!

Tomato - Tomatoe.... who cares?

It ticks me off when someone repeatedly uses them to try make up for their lack of self worth but pointing out peoples typos. When it is a MOD that has the power to "clean up" all their post of typos and misspellings it is even worse.

You out of the loop homie? The for sale threads and events/ride sections are the only sections you can actually go back and edit your posts with no time limit, the 5 min rule applies to all other sections.

Why is he allowed to edit his post for typos to make himself look oh so smart and then post up others mistakes in his sig no less. It is and we all know it!!!!
Ya but then there post shows a edit time longer than 5 mins and we can make fun of them.

I am not scared Patrick. Keith decided to put in is sig where I misspelled regardless. Now he didn't quote the whole post, but just the small section where is posted " Stupid= Stupid regardless " He even bolded the misspelled word.... And it is not the first time he has done that to me. He closed a thread and in the last post he quoted me where I made a typo. I was nice and told him that if he was gonna quote me and then close the thread before I got a chance to correct my typo, would he fix it. Did he??? NO!!!

An admin can chage the setting to allow posts to be edited whenever, but why? To fix typos?

I guess the better question should be; why not?

There's not a single national forum I'm a member of that I cannot edit posts on, yet on most of the local boards it's on a timer. Why is that?
Not trying to be argumentative, just curious.

FWIW, I am on some national forums that have post timers. They aren't at 5 mins, more like an hour or two, but still.

From what I have noticed, the more active forums seem to be the ones with timers, not sure why though.

Well...the new software defaults to the timer. However, an admin can allow users to edit posts for ever or change the time.

I guess the only reason I can think of to not allow it would be so people can't say they didnt say something. I dunno.

I know that I have said (typed) before...and an hour later wished I could take it back.

Thanks Patrick! I really don't care about the typos. I know I make a lot of them when I am posting from my iphone and I see a ton of typos everyday on here and don't think a thing about it. But when I mod is allowed to abuse a privilege they have that we don't have it rubs me the wrong way. If today would have been the first time and I hadn't already asked him not to do it, I would have let it go.

Oh boo hoo!! You have never liked me, you have made that clear before, but for no apparant reason besides that you *claimed* I reported too many posts. So you misspelled something and I quoted it because it was ironic, I never called you stupid or anything. I also didn't close your thread, where did you get that information anyways?
