I see the edit function has been taken away again. It did came back for about a week but now gone again. I admit i did edit about 2 of my posts recently, but i did say why i edit my post. Due to spelling mistake or missing a word out.

Have you tried previewing your messages before you post them? It'll let you check your message before it goes live saving you editing

I use the preview button more often than not since I don't like to edit my posts.

I believe a post could still be lost, due to the session "expiring" while you take time to preview it. Today I tried using the spell check function to catch any typos, but the stupid system locked on one word and when I clicked on the 'ignore' choice it just ignored me and froze. Closed spellcheck and decided to post quickly before system locked me out, the. discovered a typo and found system would not allow me to edit. Very annoying. Maybe the techies explore ways to torment us, to alleviate their boredom?

I can now see an error in my post above - God this stupid edit block thing is getting on my nerves now! What with my 'stupidpad' having a mind of its own and the techies here thinking up ways to torment us, I can't be a***ed with this place anymore. There's enough stress in my life already without adding to it.

In any case, I'm not likely to miss much if I wander off now, except maybe James doing some more perfume promo, anywhere but England.

I'm outta here.

As far as I know, using the preview option doesn't expire a message.

If you're writing a post and need to take a wee moment-or-two to think about what you're writing or you walk away for a few minutes before you've posted, then it will expire.

The post expiring is because the boards have recognised you as being inactive and that your message can only be held in their system for 'X' amount of time.

If you're writing an especially long post, then copy it all before you post it. It means if the session has expired, then you've at least got your message stored so that you can paste it and send it again.

When I use the preview option, I'll manually spell-check my messages. I'll copy the corrected version just as a precaution, then post my message.

I try to avoid the spell-checker options because sometimes I'll write 'then' instead of 'them' and spell-checker won't see my mistake. My message would then come out all garbled

I removed it to protect some historical posts that were being messed with. I'll put it back on now. Thanks for your eternal patience.
