For those who cannot spell
#1 10-03-2014 
So, I have huge problems with sticky keyboard keys and am a terrible speller as well. (Even with spellcheck in my browser I fail).

This means most of my posts have "edit" on them because I see AFTER hitting post that I have spelled yet another word wrongly Sad . So we now have the courtesy edit time feature where you get a bit of time (5 minutes) to edit the post content without the evil edit message showing.

EDIT to test

Oh good. That will work for me and my inability to get the download link right the first time as well? Big Grin

Great, this will come in very handy indeed, thank you Lee.

Finally! I remember a time when I could choose a setting that would never show the edit line in my posts, though I don't know if that was here or somewhere else. Anyway, I needed that, and still do, much harder than you, @leefish , because I suck at typing on tablets and at proofreading.

So yay for this feature, though I'd prefer to have at least an hour of courtesy edit time Big Grin

EDIT: (because that is how much sucking I do)

Cool feature! Very handy for those of us whose eyes only start working when something is already posted...

ok, I have made that 10 minutes - I see I am not the only one who wanted this Big Grin

You rock, @leefish ! Thank you so much! Heart

Yay! Celebrate I, too, fail at proofreading, so I will invariably detect some typo or other about 0.01 seconds after I hit "reply". Now my fail won't be that glaringly obvious. Tongue

Oops - I didn't know 'editing' had a stigma with it.... I ALWAYS edit. Rolleyes

Funny story about spelling:
I was once teaching Adult Literacy - and had a student who wanted to go on to nursing school, but she couldn't spell to save her life! During class one night, I was perusing some catalogs while waiting for her to do her work, and I came across a T-shirt that said: Bad spellers of the world UNTIE
Of course, I couldn't laugh... which made it even funnier! Too funny!

...yeah, I edit 'cause I tend to ramble on and on and on and... *sigh*

@CatherineTCJD its not the edit so much as the fact that it makes me look indecisive. Which I am not. I think.


Sorry, that is a members only option
