    [Over here at USMB the time allowed for quick edits is quite short. Another site is showing a tad more flexibility ie this following quoted exchange from there. Could there be a happy medium over here at USMB?]

    "I appreciate the edit time, as I make a lot of errors and mispellings in spite of my best attempts, and then I can usually see them once they are posted and correct them. 15 minutes seems fair to me. And sometimes I say things meanspirited, and like the opportunity to remove those words or sentence. I have noticed over the last year I get some words out of place, or not even typed in.[hr]

    I have added a time limit for post editing. You have 15 minutes from the time you created the post to edit it. The reason for this is because twice now a member has gone back and deleted their old posts. This is disruptive to the site and flow of conversation.

    Thank you."

    Deal with it.

    All sites have their own rules about editing times posts. You will know when it is up when you can no longer edits your posts.
