What happened to 'modify' post?
« on: September 17, 2014, 06:36:27 PM »
I don't see where to modify a post anymore.

What gives?

Jason,
We changed it a long time ago due to some I'm taking my ball and going home post deleters.  I believe it is on a timer now where you have a set amount of time to edit your post.

Funny, I was just going to mention that too.  Yes, you have at some point set a time limit for modifying posts, but then for some reason that limit was lifted.  I kept quiet about it because it was convenient for me.  But I guess one of you crack moderators re-enabled the time limit again. Boooo!

UM, looks like post editing is totally disabled now - I cannot edit the post I just posted few seconds earlier.  WTF?!?!

Again, few bad apples make us all suffer. I know, shut up, it is not my forum.  :RUEffinKiddingMe:

Okay, I remember that.  But haven't noticed lately.

What's the timer set at?  I thought I had tried to edit within minutes and couldn't.   :?

Still waiting....
I just posted something and wanted to add another sentence but sorry-no modify button!   :RUEffinKiddingMe:

This is silly. I know that we are bunch of bickering kids here, but we should have a chance to do some editing right after posting.

EDIT: testing

Test

EDIT:  I just was able to edit this post, although I did so immediately, so the ability to modify didn't time out.  Hopefully, your problem is fixed.

Looks like it is fixed. The modify post button is back on my posts. I was able to modify the post I made above almost 3 hours ago.

Thank you!

Tucked in, yes, but your the wrong sex and wrong hair colour. :facepalm:
