    Angry Post edit times

    Enough is enough. It's bad enough that the edit time for a post was cut back to 3 minutes, before the "Edited by . . . " shows at the bottom of the post. Now it looks like that 3 minutes has been cut back to nothing.

    I just made a post, and saw a spelling error, so I quickly fixed it, only to see the "Edited by . . . " at the bottom, and the time difference was under 1 minute.

    Fair crack of the whip, mods.

    Yeah yeah, I know there's the "preview post" option, but it was still nice to have 3 minutes to make any corrections, when you see your post live.

    because it looks like you changed what you said when it could just have been a spelling error, and people think about what was first said when there may have been nothing

    That's a tough fine line for the mods and the powers that be here. I think it's where it needs to be now, as you need to be strict with a forum this size etc.
