Before the update, I remember being able edit my posts and, being a stickler for spelling and grammar, I always notice too late that I have spelled something wrongly. I cannot find how to edit my posts. I'm usually very computer savvy, but I can't figure it out.

The Edit button worked for me in the Lounge. Once someone else adds a post the Edit button will go away.
IIRC the Edit feature was disabled in the Introductions section.

Edited after Deanna posted. :)

there should be an edit button within every post. top and bottom. there is also a time limit that you are allowed to edit your posts. i'll have to check what it is set to, but if you are returning to your post within a few minutes and do not see the edit buttons, let me know because that is a definite issue.


editing time limit is 60 minutes, time allowed to delete a post is 120 minutes.

but i do believe it still holds true that if someone posts after you, you still cannot edit your post regardless of time.

Now's not really the time to point out your typos, then, right?

:D

I fixed it for you. We moderators have that power.Bwahahahaha!

Seriously, if you DO have a need to edit after the time limit, and it is a relatively serious matter, let a moderator know. Like if you said .003 mm and meant .033 mm in advice to another denizen of the forum. ...or if you inadvertently used the word (sic) 'irregardless'. :lol:

Yes, of course, thanks wheeze. All hail the mod powers haha. I just type too fast and don't sleep well; Tower that on top of the fact that I rant...ALOT, just doesn't make for a good combination. After posting here, I suddenly have found the edit button, but I'll let you know if I come across a situation where I lose it again.
And wow, I haven't seen someone use (sic) on a public forum in, well, forever. /endrant.

Hey, we all type too fast. So long as the message gets across, I wouldn't worry about it. While some of us may note grammatical/spelling/syntactic errors, no one is marking (or calling) you on it. :D

We all knew what you were saying. It's only a problem when confusion occurs, as when someone mistakes 'brake' for 'break' or 'stator' for 'starter'. The latter case is particularly dangerous in the 'classifieds' section. :shock:
