Want to hear it? 'Course you do, and I'll tell ya, all about it, below, this, what I'm saying right now...

 

When I post a message (because I do that sometimes) and then immediately after posting I get an 'ooops' moment because I have made a typo or somein'. When I edits the thing it will put a horrid message underneath tellin' all me bros thats I made a mistake.

 

Couldn't ya make it like other (almost as swanky and hip as you) boards do and have a timer on it or similar so that it will only add said message (yes I used the word 'said' like that, everyone else does it here and I want to fit in, well a little), after 2 minutes or suchlike?

 

That way people can identify the difference between a message that has been corrected vs a message that has had something significant added to it.

 

And yes I KNOW you can preview posts. I know it has always been this way. I know it would mean changing. I know it I can go somewhere else if I want to. I know this is a free service. I know everything. oops, that was a bit to telling.

You're talking about the Ninja edit feature the board had used before the update which also had a timer of 2 minutes and I would like to see it make a return as well to be honest.

 

It was a nice feature the board had in the past.

It can still be done by changing the settings in the individual forums I think but probably there's more to do than changing that.

Not only was that not ironic, I highly doubt it was really annoying to read either.

Well that's debatable, because after I posted that I looked up the definition of the word (which so many misuse, hence why I most often tend not to bother with it) and there are varying definitions for it. So maybe it was and maybe it wasn't. But one thing s for sure, it definitely was annoying.

No need for it to be honest. It's a private message. If you have made a mistake you can send another message instead of editing it instead if you don't want to edit it.

The "edited" tag line is a permanent reminder about the virtues of proof reading and not posting when drunk.
