Plenty! I usually realize I have made a mistake 5 seconds after I hit submit .

Quoting Sam I Am

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.

I think even 2 minutes is enough...you usually see it right after you post...when it is there for the world to see...If you don't catch it then...you should just be S.O.L. (Sh*t Out of Luck)Maybe as soon as you exit that thread, the edit button dissapears? Just my 2 cents ;) but I do make my fair share of typos so I do feel qualified :)

I'd say three to five minutes would be the ideal time. We have to bear in mind people without DSL/Cable internet connection and slow server response during peak hours.

(SMACK) I can't believe I didn't think about that! Good point Hien!

Quoting Travel100

I'm sure 5 minutes is enough time anyway.

How about 10? (I just feel like negotiating!) Seriously, 5 is fine...I always see my mistakes as soon as my message is posted. I know I should use the preview button more...but I like to live dangerously!

I don't think the "edit" needs to be in bold print. It's kind of overwhelming. If, for example, it just said "[edit] typo", then everyone will still know a post has been edited but you won't have all this Bold type jumping off the page.

Yeah!! What he said!!....everytime I see that big bold edit...it causes me to suffer 'edit-envy'...;)

Actually, in my opinion, if a post is edited within say 5 minutes, there really is no need for "edit" to even appear in the post. Most people will simply be editing typos, etc.., and it will look much cleaner with the word "edit" comstantly appearing. It's a different situation when a moderator or admin. goes into someone else's post and makes an "edit" change, and therefore leaves a message saying that they did "edit" the post.
