Editing Time for Posts Increased to 30 Minutes

Posted September 14, 2018 9:45 AM

Yesterday's software update included a change to the amount of time available for users to edit posts. We've increased this time allowance from 10 to 30 minutes. Please let us know if you try unsuccessfully to edit within the 30-minute window. Thanks.

I think something is not right. I've put in two posts that never showed up... We'll see if this one makes it.

Edit: OK, looks like it made it this time.

Great! I can't test the feature because my username is linked to all the fun things moderators can do. Thanks for testing!

Thanks for the change! More than once have I run out of time trying to fix a mistake.

You're welcome! Half an hour should be long enough for another community member to find errors in a post and point them out to the OP .

My edits often time out even though the message says there is time left.
