Has this been mentioned before? I guess it may have been. How often do any of you post a message on this set of forums and when it comes back and you read it- there is a glaring Typo or something written that did not come out the way you intended? Many other forum have an edit button - to call the offending post back for correction. Is that a possibility here Ed.,in the next round of mods?
Strange isn't Some would say 'Great Minds etc.,' or In scanning the threads ,something subliminal got into the old grizzled greymatter- whats left of it- and did not come to the fore. All points taken though. No Smileys - Server Load etc.. Preparing a thread in a word program and letting it 'stew' before posting is something I do frequently. Responses however do tend to be on the 'Fly'
Not the greatest advert for a computer advisory forum,in that one has to go off and prepare their posts in another application. I don't do so, and this is the reason why I use short lines of text - I know how it will appear on the screen!!!Many forums allow 10 more chars. per line in the Message box. Also, I don't do Word and why should I learn it just for this forum.
One argues that there are thousands of members which would put strain on the servers but they don't all take an active part in the forum! I keep seeing the same 'olde' faces on a daily basis.
I believe the Magazine always tries to keep up with the rest! So why fail it's forum?
