Hey All, how do I edit a post? I belong to many forums but can't figure it out on this forum.

OK, I see it in the bottom right corner and was able to edit this post. However, why can I not edit my FIRST POST in a new thread in the TriCaster General forum?

You have 5 or 10 minutes after the post to edit it, afterwards the message is permanent.

Yep. 5 Minutes to be exact. :)

Hmmmm, interesting. Never seen that applied before. Is that more beneficial that being able to edit your original post around here?

Being English not my first language sometimes makes me to write something I discover later to have no sense, or at least not as I thought. I end editing many of my posts.

I think giving people the ability to correct things, change opinions ect... or take back a reactionary post is far more valuable in the long run.

Not, though, when Person A screams out something incredibly rude & offensive, Person B reacts to that, then Person A edits out their rude post and asks what in the world B is talking about. Persons C and D, who come along later, wonder what in heck is going on.

I think that the edit limit should be much longer, but only if no one has responded to your post. Once someone responds, you're locked down.

What would be better to even out strife is to create a "karma" rating option like some forums have. This would show how "nice" someone is perceived by the community as a whole...

Hopefully the NT forum teaches ... restraint ? ;)
