P&S, Is it near the top of the "to do" list?

Am I the only one who would like to have an "edit" button? Anyone else?

I second the notion, Jeff. It'd be really useful.

We want edit button

No, I'd really like to have it as well (with some reasonable limitations - like only being allowed for the first x minutes after posting), as I constantly keep noticing myself to make silly little typos that really should be fixed up.

I might at some point during my own time look at the relevant code to see how hard it'd be to implement, but there's a lot of other things to work on, and I assume it won't be completely trivial, or Peter'd probably have done this already.

Yes, it's near the top.. though I'm heading for Japan pretty soon, so won't have *quite* so much time to do stuff for a month or so :) well, maybe I can squeeze it in before then. As Sander says, it is more the consideration of all the conditions that makes it somewhat trickier than just another edit option.

For instance, if someone has quoted your 'mistyped' entry, are you allowed to still edit your entry? This will invariably cause confusion.

I think our general plan was to give people 30 minutes or so in which they can edit their entry. After that, it is considered written..

I think 30 minutes is plenty to spot typos, etc.. I'd say it would be ok to edit your post even if someone has already quoted you, if you think about it, they can quote you and edit your quote. Most people would probably edit there posts before it's quoted anyway.

Glad to hear it's in the planning stages

You should see how many threads we had going about the need of an edit button...

See? I didnt finish my sentence...I hit submit instead of preview (trying to use preview more per Sam's suggestion). I need to edit that please .

I'd make it five minutes tops! In half an hour, a lot of people could have responded to that post, making an edit function quite confusing and even extremely annoying in cases.

Or 30 minutes, but then with something in there that if someone replies the edit function is gone.

I'm sure 5 minutes is enough time anyway.
