Can we change the 30 minute edit time please?


I saw a post from almost 10 years ago asking about putting a time limit on how soon after you can make an edit after posting something. I guess I get why you would do that since it makes it hard for someone to "change their words" during an argument. However, I don't see enough times where that is really needed compared to people needing to edit it for legit reasons like they posted a bad link to a picture or something was misspelled or had incorrect info that should be changed.

This is honestly the only forum I use that has that kind of limitation on it, and I'll ask if we can change it to just letting people edit their posts indefinitely. If there is a big enough argument going on in this forum where people abuse the edit button, I would advocate for just suspending their account or deleting the thread since its probably not a positive contribution.

I agree, sometimes clarifying your statement can help diffuse a misunderstanding/miscommunication. But I understand having a limit, maybe it could just be extended to a day or so?
