Editing posts

Post by vic evans » Mon Apr 15, 2019 11:35 am

I always thought there was a reasonable time period between posting & editing said post before the 'last edited' notice showed.
This morning the notice showed 2 minutes after I edited a post to add a word I missed out. Is this short time window normal?

I thought there was no time limit on changing posts.

I do believe you're correct but that wasn't what I asked. :?

It will show up if you put in the reason for the edit. What post did you edit?

Ignore that I found it, can't see why it has changed on first glance and my first edit on here isn't showing up a time. :P Try editing your post above and see if it still shows up.

I put an extra laughing thingy in , re-posted & no 'last edited' note shows.

If there is one thing I have learnt on French forums is that people don't read other peoples posts. They just read their own.

So I would not worry too much about it. No one would have noticed :lol:

On screen it looks like you've simply quoted your earlier post and put the extra laughing thingy in the quoted post, so your earlier post of 12:02 pm wasn't edited, just quoted at 12:49 pm.

If you'd edited your earlier post, the extra laughing thingy would show up in that post, and it doesn't.
