FE quote - What we'll do is look into the possibility of having an edit facility. I want to be clear that I'm making absolutely no promises, and nothing may come of it, but.............we'll look into it.

This has been discussed ad-infinitum and FE reckons that the problems out weigh the advantages.

Are you sure Jimmy14 boy.Bit aggressive.
The link I gave was for the post "Editing yer posts",
now you would think that if one searched for
'editing your posts' then it would still find it.

Sorry, it can't even find "Editing yer posts"!!
In fact all it comes up with is a 'Vists' post 4th Aug.

In the past, I have already pointed to the fact that
this search machine is absolute
Perhaps this post should be listed in the Helproom?

I always type my posts/responses up in Word first. Then read them through a couple of times and make any amendments before posting them on the Forum. Not just because of the editing facility but, in the past when I have typed a thread/response that has been fairly long and hit the Post button I have lost the connection. That means typing it up again and trying to remember what I said in the first place.

Save it in Word and when it has been posted successfully it can be deleted.

Takes a little longer and sometimes, can get pipped at the post (excuse the pun) by another member posting a similar response.

I think a lot of regular posters do the same thing. I certainly do it that way, although you wouldn't know it from the state of the typos in some of my posts.

That's because I rattle off everything in such a rush - my excuse, and I'm sticking to it.
