    Please can we have an extension of the window to edit posts. My typing skills seem to have deserted me recently (and the spell check has become more aggressive in its corrections) and I would like to be able to go back and edit posts to correct them.
    I haven't seen anyone complaining that the function has been abused so I don't see why we can't have a decent time to edit.
    Plus - can we get some more smilies, please? This is a very limited range and the eye-rolling one isn't nearly sarcastic enough. Some hugs, drinks, cake (not the Mumsnet nipple, though) and similar would be good.

    Gah! 40 of you looked and didn't care enough even to tick the "I Don't Care" box.

    There now, I've given you a tick. :)
    Spellcheck? I don't seem to have one of those, thankfully. I can't stand predictive texting either.

    Hi @Flere-Imsaho

    Thank you for your suggestions.

    I'll consider your suggestion about extending the time limit on editing posts.

    There are no plans at this time to introduce more smilies.

    Thanks, Rosie!
    And thank you, Rosaline, for considering it despite the underwhelming enthusiasm from other posters!

    We really do miss the smilies we had before.

    Sorry to be late to the party. I hadn't noticed this - I tend to forget about this forum. I've added a belated 'Yes'.

    Ooh, thank you.
