Humble Requests for More Time to Edit Posts

  1. I would like to humbly request that Your Most Serene and Awesome Wizardness consider increasing the edit window time.

    Advances in Forum technology, and probably also advances in the technology of sitemeter, et al mean terrific improvements in many areas, and for almost all users.

    However, we who whose honor it is to share the rich tapestry of tradition that is the Proud Dial-Up Peasantry Community, especially that wee and admittedly querulous minority who are blessed with ownership of Venerable Authentic Estate Sale Quality computers, all that progress means an impact on page load time, even page load occurrence, which in turn, means that the editing window has sometimes elapsed by the time we are able to get to the editing window, even if we notice our typos (which slipped through the cracks even though we really do use preview) almost immediately.

    I would humbly request that there not be an edit window time at all, but I assume that its presence is a testament not only to the august and considerable wisdom of Wizardly judgment, but also an indication that past experience may have directed its existence in the first place, which I fully comprehend, though usually one sees that kind of thing more often in forums that are not fashion-focused, and so I shake my head, sigh, of course, and murmur "sad, really sad," as I contemplate the probable reality that someone, sometime, would actually abuse the edit window in the course of a discussion on the relative merits of different face creams, purse organizers, or whether a particular top would look slutty if the wearer carried a taupe clutch.

    But maybe the window could be expanded just a smoosh without significantly increasing the likelihood of abuse?
  2. that would be great. maybe half an hour or so? my oscar nominations thread is a mess and i couldn't edit it, lol. :rolleyes:
  3. I changed the edit time limit to 30 minutes.
  4. Danke, Vlad!
  5. how could Vlad possibly say no after an intro like that!?
  6. I somehow got lulled into it, don't even know what happened!

  7. :roflmfao:
  8. that's great, thank you! :ty:
  9. He usually would not say yes to this... but Shimma reeled him in!!
  10. Well, you know what they say . . . flattery will get you everywhere!
  11. Oh wow, that's great, thanks ShimmaPuff :flowers: Although I didn't understand a word of what you were saying, but Vlad certainly bought it :roflmfao:

    Is this for keeps, Vlad or just temporary?
  12. A Thousand Thanks, O Most Commendable Fount of Our Binary Glee!

    May perfect rice perfect rice every time, shinier and more manageable hair, and all the Swiss chocolate you can eat rain upon your house and head unto all generations!

    (Don't worry Megs, he will be perfectly normal in a few minutes, and have no memory of any of this)
  13. Who can say no to shimma?? I think it is all the four syllable (not 4 letter!) words she uses as well as shamanic imagery that puts people into hypnotic trances and causes them to do her bidding. She's like obi wan with a better vocabulary.

    thanks vlad and shimma!
    (riding the shimma wave and about to enjoy editing my posts for a full 30 minute window... woohoo!)
  14. Oo! Oo! I want to try one!

    Our Most Kind and Benevolent, Magnanimous and Generous Leaders. A thousand thanks from your humble supporters for the granting of our request.
  15. Hehe Binary glee... you can't beat that unless you wrote it out in binary.
