    OKk, I'm not sure if this has been brought up or not. I'm really to lazy to go thru a bunch of locked threads.

    What I'm wondering about is why the JC editing time is so short? Is there a solid reason? Can the time be lenghtned? Please?

    Question Answered. And another reason that wasn't mentioned below, it's a way that spammers and trolls have 60 less minutes in which to edit their posts.

    Misleading titles make mods' trigger fingers ichy.

    As for your question, I think the times are pretty good. You should check your replies right after you make them if you're having troubles.

    i think it's so short in YJCC because the conversation tends to move so fast, and if you could go back and change something an hour later it could potentially alter the comments of everyone who posted after you...

    Only 30 minutes in the YJCC forum? Sometimes I can't get my posts edited in time, and have to post again, wouldn't that be considered spam because its the same thing twice?

    KP-But mods have the power to edit anything at any time, *at least thats the impression I'm getting* Why can't the YJCC be lengthened to 90 minutes?

    well, you could always ask a mod to make an edit to your post, if it really mattered i suppose...


    edit: spelling

    Umm... Out of curiousity, what could you need to add in 90 minutes that you couldn't add in 30?

    You should be thankful you even have a 30 minute editing limit. Back in the beginning (of Snowboards) there was a 15 minute limit.

    But a few months after the switch it was changed to 90 minutes, and not too long after that it was reduced to 30 minutes (in YJCC). I know it sucks, but it also is helpful in that we should think more carefully about what goes into our posts. However, most of the other forums still have the 90 minute editing limit.

    The Fan Fiction forum has an unlimited time limit, FYI.

    What's so hard about checking your post for errors directly after posting it, and then editing it right away?

    And if you think of something to add after the editing time is up, just put it in a fresh post.

    Isn't public affection a violation of the TOS? ?[face_plain]

    I think this answers the question succinctly.
