Why There is No Edit Delay?

Recommended Posts

I love this forum software, except for one simple little annoyance.

In other sites, there was perhaps a 1 min delay after your initial post, before recognizing any subsequent edit as an edit.

Sometimes I catch a simple quick grammatical error or spelling or whatever, immediately after posting, and I correct it within the span of a min.  Often just a few seconds, especially on a quick response.  But no matter how quick you are, it gets noted as an edit with this software. 


Would it be possible to delay it by a minute?  That allows you a quick fix, but little else.

I see a lot of post edits, and I will hazard a guess that it is often just a post edit, rather than a changed thought.


Just a thought.

Unfortunately, that is a software limitation that I have no control over.  That said, there is no harm in the "edited" note in the post, we don't think less of you for it.

Course you can always use the more editor options when creating a post and then click Preview Post and double check your post be fore posting. That makes it nice to post non edited posts then, but I agree with Drew, we do not think less of you for editing to keep your post spelling error free and good grammar. :D
