The edit window on posts is 30 minutes. This should be ample time to fix typos and add additional thoughts. We have this limit in place because in the past we have had substantial problems with folks going back and changing their posts after another member has responded and essentially changing the intent of the discussion. We've also had entire posts removed which disrupts thread continuity and is sort of insultinging to those who took the time to respond.

Members rarely go back into a thread and reread old content looking for changes so if you edit a post to add a thought days after you made the post, most will never see the change.

Mods are willing to assist with any needed edits and we have this limit in place to keep the board running smoothly.

Thanks for understanding.

Kate We do the same thing when organizing club runs. It makes it so much simpler.

This is the only forum, of the dozen or so that I participate on that doesn't allow post editing. I addressed the issue sometime back but didn't have any success then. Maybe things can change now.

I agree 100% this is how we do it at another form I belong to. We just keep the first post updated so everyone knows what is going on. Makes it easier then digging through the thread to find the info.
