"Modify message" question
« on: November 23, 2018, 08:47:28 PM »
I do not understand why there is such a short time limit for modifying my posts. There are times that I post my thoughts on a subject and then a little while later I think of something else. Because the time limit has passed, I end up having to do two separate posts, sometimes consecutively. Could you explain why there is a short time limit? Thanks for any help.
I walk into Barker's Bargain Bar to find some deals. I notice the men's department and encounter some Temptation. I go over and look at some t-shirts trying to figure out which one is 1/2 Off. One shirt has Five Price Tags on it for some reason so I must go to the price scanner to find out which is the One Right Price. Next I go over to the slacks and see a sign, "2 for the Price of 1." I figure the Clearance Sale price is around $40 each. Seeing that it's a good deal, I Take Two. Time is running short, so I hurry over to the shoes department to see if I can Pick a Pair for my meeting tomorrow. I find the perfect shoes, hurry back to the Check-Out and hand the clothes to the clerk so she can ring them up. She tells me the Actual Retail Price for all the items, and I discover...


Have a nice day.

An incident happened a while back when someone edited a post that Marc, the owner of the site, had already responded to and the edit ended up completely ruining the perfectly valid point that Marc was trying to make.  As a result, editing was disabled entirely.  After some time, people were complaining about not being able to edit posts to fix spelling/grammar errors or to add something they didn't think of in their initial post so a 10 minute edit period was added and has remained to this day.  Basically, it's to prevent such incidents from happening again.

The actual retail price is...
