15 minutes to edit your post?

Carb Lover | Jun 25, 2006 05:17 AM

I was planning on posting my first SF Board post when I noticed the note at the bottom: "You'll be able to edit your post for 15 minutes." I recall some mention of this in site talk feedback, but it didn't bother me b/c 15 minutes to edit a pre-existing post sounded like ample time.

However, it now appears that I have a total of 15 min. to compose my initial post. Is that right? As someone who is a fan of lengthy detail and description, appending links and photos, combing over my posts for typos, etc., 15 min. doesn't sound like enough time for a detailed report. I suppose that I could draft in Word and then copy to CH once I'm ready, but I'd like to avoid that extra step if possible. Something about typing it "on site" is more appealing and motivating to me.

So, I guess my questions are:

1. Am I correct about this 15 min. time limit?
2. Why does there need to be a limit?
3. Will this change at all in the future?
4. What happens if I take more than 15 min.? Will there be a warning or will it not be able to process?
