Timed post editing - an experiment - test and leave feedback here please

Discussion in 'Personal' started by TES_Bev, May 23, 2011.

  1. Hi all
    We are conducting another experiment in this forum. The ability to edit your own post within 2 minutes should you need to. Ignore the 'Edit Notes' field. The 'Current Edit Notes' box tells admin whether and when a post has been edited. After 2 minutes, the edit button should disappear once the screen is refreshed.
    Abuse of this facility will be met with strict sanctions under our moderation policy and we would ask you to please bear in mind our Terms and conditions.
    Give it a try and if it works well, we may extend it to other forums.

    I feel like my classes do when I tell them to chat for 2 minutes - suddenly nothing to say!
    Generally, I like it.

    Oh! Network really slow this evening. Waited for this to upload - tab still showing 'loading', so close down, try to reconnect & of course missed my window to edit. What was that you were saying Betanie 'Even a confirmed technophone like me can edit! Obvoisuly not me * I thought I was reasonably computer-savvy!
    So try again!
    Now if this appears I've managed it!
  17. Oh, I like.
    It works.
    I would like 5 minutes, or until somebody else has posted, but I can live with 2.
