So, I made an FPP. Immediately after I hit Post, I noticed a glaring spelling error. There does not seem to be an edit window for posts that have been posted. I find this unfotunate. Can there be an edit window for them?
Went to make my second edit in an ask answer (i suck at typing apparently) and noticed the "Time Remaining to Edit: " was 5 mins and some seconds. Missed grabbing a screenshot unfortunately. I thought the edit window was 5 mins... did I mis-remember, has it changed, or just a random bug? [more inside]
You don't need to tell us that you're not abusing the edit window. Just make the additional comment and say what you wanted to say. [more inside]
I just used the edit window to close a parenthetical statement I'd left open by accident, and I was just thinking about how much I have appreciated it since its introduction. Hooray for the edit window! Saving mefites everywhere from the shame of inadvertent typos! Thanks, mods, for having implemented this incredibly useful feature.
I'm guilty of this: I find myself rereading my posts continuously for 5 minutes after I post them, even though I already previewed and corrected any typos. Not a complaint per se, just curious if my experience is unique.
How many people have used it, average edits per post, how many the person with the most edits has used, etc (not naming names), how often its used the various subsites, how many flags/complaints you've gotten over editted posts, etc? Just curious how it's working out.
I just posted an AskMe with a dumb typo. Any chance of getting an edit window for Ask as well? [more inside]
What about an "on second thought, maybe it'd be better not to have said anything at all" window? [more inside]
Edited to add. [more inside]
We just added the ability to edit comments for five minutes across all MetaFilter sites. [more inside]
Whatever happened to introducing a three-minute edit window for comments? [more inside]
We last discussed the edit window last September, after it was tried out in December '08. I was just curious what the current status of the feature was ... has any definite decision been made one way or the other whether it'll be rolled out, and if so, has a date been set?
Whatever happened to the "Timed Editing" feature allowing corrections on comments/posts for 3 minutes after posting (pre-announced and tested here in December 2008)? Was it officially canceled, filed and forgotten, or implemented but Wendell's too stupid to figure out how to use it?
We're considering a new feature and could use some help kicking the tires. [more inside]
