Since we recently had a member try to take his posts and go home we now have a 24 hour time limit on editing posts.

That seems like a very reasonable amount of time. Thanks!

Obviously missed the discussion about imposing time limits on "edits"

I think 24 hours is too short IMHO - 7 days would be a more reasonable time frame

Oh man that a bummer now I can't go back and fix my older posts & images. How many times has that happened that a member removes all their posts? That's the first time I ever seen that myself I believe? Oh well.

In all fairness, wouldn't two or three days be better? Just a thought.

If it would just be a super-simple change, I'd vote for a little longer, too. 3 days, 7 days?

If it was kind of a hassle to create, then so be it.

Overall, I think it is worth having it.

I for one am totally in agreement with time limits on editing
and was one (yes there were others) who asked Bobby if
it was possible to implement them after that guy
deleted all his posts and wrecked a whole bunch of
threads.

24 hours is long enough to correct any typos or grammatical
errors or image changes any one might want to make.

Why would you go back one month, 6 months, a year
to change something you have posted?

Were not writing novels here.

Use the preview feature to see if any typos crept in or to check
if an image is showing properly or if a link works, etc.

I just can't see what the problem is with a 24 hour limit.
I believe there is at least one site where you have one hour
and that's it.

The fact that the Moderator even has to implement something like this is sad.

24-48 hours is very fair.

Hi,
I sometimes edit my older posts with links to new posts to connect the posts with the same contents.
So I not agree with limits.

see thread-posts: http://goscf.com/t/14223&whichpage=4#299092

Sorry folks, 24 hours is plenty. As mentioned earlier, a ton of forums are 1 hour. I personally belong to two forums that are 15 minutes.
