Unfortunately there's been a recent rash of people abusing the edit/delete feature so we've set it to 'off' for normal users and there's a 15 min timer for premium members. if things are cordial and peaceful then we can consider adjusting more but for now people need to know that what they post has consequences. they can't just write whatever they want only to delete it minutes later.
I will be continue, as necessary, to ban folks who refuse to follow the community guidelines.
thanks for your understanding.

I promise Mike and I will start to behave although most of my edits are for spelling mistakes (I'd use the excuse that English is not my native language but we know how my nemesis reacts when I use excuses :p ).

I don't think we need more editing than what we currently have. No one's mentioned it in a year and you two have 15 mins as subscribers

Thank you Josh, I was being facetious ;) the editing is perfect the way it is.

I would’ve mentioned something a long time ago, but my typos haven’t been so unreadable to the point that I need to edit. I’m an English major, so Typos make me cringe, but being that this is a hobby forum for the most part, I don’t really care about sentence structure and proper punctuation.

How about unexpiring edit capabilities for Members?

I find typos in my posts hours and days later that bug me... I'm special like that

It would be nice to edit or add onto my threads with updated information. As of now one would get lost reading back to see what I'm talking about.

Josh, how about opening it up indefinitely for Tarantula Club members? At present, it is just a fee to join--but how about adding the criterion that limits eligibility to become a member to reaction scores over, say, 2500. That way, we know it won't be abused by those of us who want to pick a fight, type in inappropriate content and delete later.

I'd like to be able to edit the two long term stickied posts "A slightly in-depth guide to tarantula anatomy and taxonomic terms" and the "How to sex your tarantula" occasionally to include new info, name changes, extra spermathecae pics etc. But other than that I think the 15 min edit window for those that want to pay for it seems fine.

A moderator would be happy to make changes or additions to existing threads for you.
