Default Editing previous posts.....????

It appears that I am not able to edit my previous posts, even in threads that I've started. I've since moved some photos around within my PhotoBucket account and would like to update my links to my posts.

But, I can edit my posts to update the links.....
AND, I've been successful in getting pictures uploaded to the Saturnalia site, but linking to them....or removing them...well, that appears to be another issue



Any advice???

Hate to pull up an old post but I'm running into the same issue. I had a typo on one of my posts and now can't fix it? Can anyone explain why this isn't possible or if it is show me where to do it?

Ha! Good luck with actually getting any response from anybody that purports to run this place. Rumor has it that some people had made some comments, than gone back and changed them..... oh no...

At any rate, you just have to check, double-check, then triple check your posts before posting. Because after that, you won't get any help about changing them.

The FAQ'S in another part of this forum may help otherwise posts are open to editing for approximately 15 minutes then closed. Attempting to edit past this time limit results in an automated message. Either ask the Admin to amend your post and wait or continue with another post to note corrections. Charlie is the only moderator so replies may require patience.

The best way to prevent errors in a post is to use the 'Preview Post' tab as many times as needed before submitting it. Previewing allows all the time for editing since it isn't posted yet. Once a comment is posted, you're given 15 minutes to make any corrections before it becomes permanent. Editing afterwards requires submitting a request to the Admin.

You are, in effect, given the responsibility to misspell (if spelling checker isn't used), be creative in writing, add links and pictures, write backwards, even deliberately attempt something resembling dyslexia/aixelsyd. Perhaps this can be termed longhand texting.

You're certainly correct about double and triple checking of responses before posting them. It is not true, however, that one will get no help to correct errors after an item has been posted and can no longer be edited by the member. Charlie has made many such corrections for me in the past. It usually takes some time, perhaps a week or so, but one must be patient. He has typically sent a response back to me any time he's completed my correction requests.

Happy Re: Editing previous posts.....????

I can help. Please send me a note and I'll edit your post for you. The limitation is there because of issues we had in the past with users going back and changing their posts after they had several responses. This caused confusion when reading through a thread because the responses didn't reflect what was sometimes included in the revised text. The 15 minute limit was put in place to prevent that from happening several years ago, however I can see how maybe extending the time limit might be beneficial.
