@JingoFresh, you CAN edit your own posts but finding the "Edit Button" is easy to miss. Look below the post where it shows the poster's name and date. To the right should be the word edit. This is clickable even though there is no indication. An edit window will popup and you can modify or add to any of your own posts.

I use a free spell checker called Speckie that saves me from myself frequently.

I know I can edit, but it seems the edit window is 5 minutes or so. I didn't notice them until after :frown:

I use Firefox which has a built in spell checker that works great. In my case it wasn't actually misspellings, but mistyped words spelt correctly, which I guess can only be caught by proofreading.

This is true... 5 minute limit for Registered users... unlimited for Ceph Heads and Staff. This ensures that we don't have Registered users who register an account, post one note, then come back later to edit the original with spam links for search engines to pick up on, etc.
