about 7-8 minutes...not long enough..life and editorials..change in a sec or a heart beat!!

Pete!:
My only complaint about this site.
It's super frustrating to see a spelling, grammar, factual,
or punctuation error in one of my posts, where the whole world can see it, and be helpless to do anything about it.

Corrine:
Actually, hayc59, there is a 5 minute edit time.  Preview your post before clicking the Post button. 

Pete, I understand and would be happy to make a correction for you -- just send me a PM.  The edit times have been in place for many years.  (Old discussion topic here:  How long is "Modify".

Nobody is treating anyone like a child, nor is there any attempt at political correctness.  The forum software doesn't allow some folks to have a long edit time and others only a short one, nor can one subforum be treated differently than another.  It is one size fits all setting, that's the entire story. 

The five minute edit window was put into place a long time ago for several reasons.  Two that come to mind ... (1) folks editing their logs after a few 'fixes' were applied and causing problems with subsequent cleanup efforts since there were no longer 'before' and 'after' logs to compare, and (2) a few members starting up their flamethrower and then editing out their comments after the eruption started to make it seem they hadn't been involved.

That's really the only option available.  It is what it is.  If you find something you wish to have corrected, send a message to an Admin and they'll fix the post for you.
