    Editing posts limited to 2 minutes now

    Editing your own posts is now limited to 2 minutes after you hit the reply button. Just enough time to proof read.

    Previously the time was unlimited to edit your own posts. This has caused some confusion when a person edits an old post and changes the conversation for new readers. While those that have already posted after the edited post don't realize an edit was made.

    FYI , you must be finished editing within 2 minutes. Not just hitting the edit button within 2 minutes.

    It's not always a proof read issue, at least with me. It's more of a I have more to add issue. Hope you enjoy multiple posts by the same person.

    We'll just have to make you the moderator in charge of double posts.

    retarded... Use the fuckin quote button and there will be no confusion. Going to create a lot of extra posts IMO when people fuck up photos, links, want to update for sale lists/prices, correct wrong info etc...

    If needed you can ask any moderator to edit an ad or post. It just fixes a lot of confusion that happens when people go back and change things. I mean we're not trying to make it a bad experience, we obviously have
    The best intentions. If we're wrong we can always change it too. We do discuss amongst moderators before really making any changes. I think it will be something toget used to, but it will
    Be a quick adjustment.
