Who is the CC Forum "Moderator"... I need a spelling error corrected.

On my last post started by "SMLRANGER" about Hydraulic fluid change...
I typed "He" and it should have been "we"
Thanks

You can edit your post I do it a lot (fat fingers) there is an icon somewhere near the bottom just click and your post will come up for edit, make corrections then click save.

I just added this after posting---easy.

The editing function only lasts for about an hour after initial post. Use the Red triangle icon with the exclamation point to report you'd like your mistake to be corrected. I see misspelling in many posts that gets corrected, especially if the error leads to misunderstanding.

Correct .You can also quote your own post and explain the typo.

Alternatively - you can hit the report post button on the problem post and ask for an edit. IN the meantime we've fixed the typo

I certainly do not think I am owed an explanation, but here, the poster is limited to editing his or her own posts for about an hour? Is there a reasoning behind this?

In many forums a poster can edit his/her posts as long as it is on the boards. The post reflects the time of editing for others to see.

Just curious.

This thread sums it up .

Why restrict editing period?

I'm sorry Cliff...but that didn't clear anything really up...at least half of the group wants a longer time period or not at all... then one said it makes it easier for the Moderator to continue to go to posts to correct a mis-spelling or such. Most of the "Community Admin"
also want it changed. As someone said.... Why punish everyone for the one or two others. I believe that most people on this site, are interested in getting good info or reading about others problems and highlights... but to punish everyone..it should not be that way. IMHO..

Thanks for the link to the explanation.

As I understnd it the one hour limit was put in place until a few bad apples were disciplined, and once that was complete, the rule remains in effect.

Kinda like leaving a road closed after the accident is cleaned up.

Not that I agree, but then again, I am not in charge.

So be it.

Thanks for your comments, but the 60 minute time limit has been in place for years and it has been the best compromise.

We've had shorter time limits, tried longer ones and our experience has shown the current limit works best.

If a member needs an edit after the time has expired, all they need to do is report the post or contact the Help Desk via the Contact Us link at the top and bottom of every page and we will be happy to make the change for you.
