Increase time allowed to edit posts

If that's any way possible. 15 or 30 minutes would be sweet.

Thanks.

It has been 10 minutes for a long time and I think that is sufficient, however we can see how many members feel it needs changed by posting here

What's wrong with adding another post? I am human and I make mistakes. I can't hide them all

there is also a "preview post" option that you can choose to check your post before submitting it

I'd also like more time. I have tried to go back and delete/edit snarky responses and at times couldn't because I was to late.

Then add an apology. Jes. Sorry if I'm snarky but this aint rocket science. Ever called your mama to apologize for something you did the day before? I sure have.

Maybe folks would do good for themselves if they would think a little before typing.

"Preview post" sounds like too much work. I'd rather just spat off at the mouth and let it be.

well, you could just not make those snarky responses

also, you need to keep in mind that if you post something and then someone quotes it to respond to you and you go back 20 or 30 minutes later and change your post, then that, and possibly even more, posts/responses may not make sense, etc.

again, I believe the 10 minutes is sufficient

Michael, we enjoy posting in Lawnsite, that's why we are here, but sometimes we are in a hurry but want to post, so we type it in a hurry to help/reply another poster and then realize something might have been better said if it was worded differently. Or sometimes we are just plain wrong and only realize it a few minutes later.

If you could make it to 15, I think it would be more accommodating for all posters. Also, keep in mind that days can be very long under the sun and we might be more prone to making small mistakes when writing.

So if you could make it to at least 15, it would allow more time for our second thoughts... And I don't think it would jeopardize in any way your great site.

Thanks.

^^^^This is a very good example of snarky that if given the chance I would have gone back and rephrased. I'M sure the guy didn't mean to "spat off".

The 10 minute limit is absurd. I'm not really sure why it's in effect, but I will often think of another point, or bit of info that helps to better explain what I'm trying to get across, and after I get done adding my info, I get the "so sorry if you had to stop typing for a minute to take the dog out, be we can not accept your edit now" message.

Really? Sheesh.

All sarcastic commentary aside, please extend the time limit.
