Deletion and Editing posts

#1 Post by Polchraine »

I recently attempted to edit a post, just 5 minutes after posting. I could not.

I then attempted to delete the post - I could not.

What has happened to the 15 minute window?

i believe dromia thought it was too long, and reverted to the 5 minute window. I seem to recall something about if it ain't right, don't hit submit.

Its normally down to my small keyboard on the phone, and I am sure there is an auto correct gremlin that changes it on pressing send or commit.
I am always shouting "stupid phone", yes i know its me but I have to blame something.

God bless the edit button. shakeshout

Oh and used it this time due to m in and being there, see bloody gremlin

He has stated it as 20 minutes.

because leaving them leaves a guide price for other people wanting to sell similar things, and gives a history,

editing was removed so people couldn't sell then change terms etc
