Editing too often?

I went back to add something to a post I just wrote and got a message saying the administrator has specified that I can only edit messages within 5 minutes of posting it or something and I was out of that time and couldn't change what I'd written.

I've never gotten it before... have I done something wrong? Am I being punished for too many times of going back to fix my posts?

Re: Editing too often?

How do we edit our FSOT posts to sold then? Is there an announcement on this somewhere?

Re: Editing too often?

I think we are able to edit fsot, but not in the wahm tester section, or co-ops... Plus its really annoying not to be able to update threads like in the due date groups with an update from the dr or whatever.

Re: Editing too often?

I don't have my edit button on any of my posts, except for in wahm wares (I don't have any fsot threads right now). I have to say that I don't think I like this. I was planning on listing some testers at the end of the week, and now I can't update in the original post. This would be helpful.

I hope admin rethinks this.

I agree, I went to update my tester info with no information, and now I have to add an entire new post to convey info which just gets cluttered.

Hmm...would it be possible to make it so that the original post of a thread can be edited anytime? That seems to be the post that will cause the most problems if unable to be updated.

Re: Editing too often?

I'm not happy with this change either...now I can't add new information to my tester thread, or use it to keep track of order updates. This will force me to start a new thread every time I want to test a new size, color, etc because I can't change the title or OP to reflect that.

Can we allow the edit for the TTC and Pregnancy forum too?
