    Two questions about editing

    i) How long does a poster have to edit their post before the 'This post has been editied by a tosser who couldn't get it right first time' message appears.

    ii) Why can't posts in the Music forum be edited - why is that? <- oops I can edit posts in the Music forum.....

    Thanks in advance for your kind consideration

    Thank you kind sir. It's always a dilemma whether or not to correct the mistake and have the post branded.....I guess it's not all that important, but when posting on here is the only thing that gets you through the day......

    I generally post, try an eliminate the dyslexia ( I tend to leave out, or transpose, words; even sentences, along with the tendency to jumble up the spelling) some times I write forever only to notice I completely left out the point I was trying to make! Then many time just say fuck it. Sure there's a few folks scratchin' their heads thinkin' "What the fuck was that??"

    Its way longer than 2 minutes.

    I edited a post after DD suggested I should and it was 24 hrs old.

    Some of the forums have an indefinite edit function and some just 2 minutes.
