    Edit Times have been Changed

    The time constraints to edit your posts have been changed. Due to much pleading and requests the time to edit your posts have been changed from 5 minutes to 1 hour. Remember that this is a privilege. If anyone abuses it like it was in the past this can be easily taken away.

    ....Buuuut I know that no one will do that, so enjoy!

    I don't really understand the point of having an edit limit at all, or exactly how it could be abused in the first place. Wasn't around for that shitstorm, apparently.

    I'm rather annoyed with this limitation in that people who create topics which require constant updates (tournaments, game info, etc) are unable to do so. If the powers that be are absolutely hellbent on keeping this around, then would there be any chance for topic creators to bypass this with their initial post?

    Way ahead of you. I am already in a process of seeing if this is possible on this forum. Right now this is not implemented, but in the future it may be. The moment that I find out that this is possible it will be the number 1 priority.

    Awesome. Thank you, The Detonator!

    (and there was great rejoicing...)

    You can pretty much call what we had in place The Princedavid Rule.

    If you have no idea what that means, then I envy you...

    I don't know. He must have moved on to a different forum that has a deeper appreciation of human advancement.

    I forget who it was, but I'm sure the guy that PD bought a Wii U for thought he was a cool guy, too.

    I actually liked the guy, but he was way over the top a lot. He had some major mood swings. One week he was the most pro-Nintendo person in the world, and the next week, he was the most over the top, critical person in the world. It was one or the other with him.

    Appreciate the update and 1 hour is definitely a lot better than 5 minutes!
    - I saw six men kicking and punching my mother-in-law. My neighbor walks over and says, "Are you going to help?" I said, "No, six should be enough." -

    This is very nice. I often make spelling mistakes (usually due to fast typing) and do not realize that they are misspelled right away and 5 minutes is not long enough. I know most say just forget the mistakes and move on but my OCD does not allow for that to easily happen.

    If a post is edited I have seen forums where the edited post shows up but there is also a link to the original post that can be shown to see exactly what was said the first time.

    I'm so OCD with that that I have a fear that someone will post and quote me before I can get my edit in.

    Us old farts like to make sure we spell things correctly and use words properly. Sadly that is something that is lost on much of today's younger generation. Working in a high school I find it sad that some teachers do not take spelling and vocabulary seriously all that much anymore. I have seen students turn in papers using "text" speak meaning they spell things like Oh Really like O RLY and improperly use words like your, you're, too, two, to, and except and accept and teachers shrug it off as it is just the sign of the times and it is not important.

    Last year I got an email from a student that was written in old T9 texting style meaning they used things like B4 and UR and other shortened versions that were common when phones did not have full keyboards and I replied to the student "I speak English not Bingo so if you want to communicate with me please use real words otherwise in the future I will delete and ignore your emails"

    Right now everyone just needs to add the word

    EDIT:


    then post the edited text after that. That is the only solution to that specific problem at the moment.

    Yo bobiroc, I know the feels. Despite my usual lack of effort in capitalization, I am a proponent of proper sentence structure as well. This post proves it!

    ...phew, glad that's over.

    I think that's a conflict of interest.

    How can I trust you to properly defend and prosecute me at the same time?

    Plus, you're the judge? What if you disagree with yourself? Am I allowed to walk due to a "hung jury"?

    (A hung jury is the best kind of jury she said.) Awww yeaaahhh!!!!

    But what if it goes like a day, and you see that you had a typo or you wrote something wrong? :O
    And I don't really see how you could abuse this anyways.

    What if one day you were in a rage and wrote something stupid, then you couldn't remove it later, and would look like a dick even though it was just a moment of passion.
