Are we no longer allowed to edit mistakes in our own posts?

Are we no longer able to edit mistakes and typos in our own posts? Just wondering.

There are no mistakes in Buddhism. Typos are a consequence of karma.  :teehee:

Could another member confirm that this feature is missing? The button might have just moved to a different location. If it is missing, we'll kick it up to the fix-it department.

TESTING the "Modify" capability. THis was the Original post.

This is immediately after clicking "Modify."


It seems that in some subforums modifying is allowed while in others it isn't.

That is a Forum Permissions setting issue ..... THIS WAS ALSO FROM LICKING "Modify"
...i found there was no "i" anywhere.....

In Mahayana> Chan / Zen /Sheon / Thien I had already modified a text. But upon seeing a further typo I was then no longer allowed to edit. The modify button was gone.

There is a Setting called "Courtesy edit wait time" that allows editing for as long as the setting. Once that time passes, no "Modify" allowed.

I just made a testing post over there and was able to modify it even three times.  Maybe it's related to the limited editing time available?

5 min passed, modified it two more times. Perhaps it's due to karma or merit?? :-P

35 min passed and I was still able to modify my post.

Actually, it seems to last about 2 hours since I can edit only a few of my last posts within this thread.

Well, I guess it is all small fish. anyway I am used to posting in a forum in which once something is posted one cannot edit a smidgen. There one can delete,  but that is it. So even a small window of opportunity is appreciated. I thought there was some glitch. Or that it was a programming thing related to the fact that I am on a Mac.  :smack:
