View Full Version : Why the rush?
31st January 2003, 09:32 AM
Lately, as an interesting phenomena, I has been watching an increasing ammount of people editing theirs own posts barely a few minutes after from theirs "apparently" hurried originals.
I was wondering the reason of this, I mean, Is it perhaps any kind of thoughts race/contest here or what?
I think nobody is gonna take away that thread from you, preventing you can express your opinion, so no need for rushed thoughts posting to change your mind just a few minutes later... Or is this whole new situation of Forum Hosts and a few Censorship episodes the true culprit of all this Paranoia?
Well, just a thought... as you know I?m a professional curious ;)

i often edit my posts after reading them - to correct spelling or other errors as i find it easer to spot errors once the text is posted up and on a slightly diffrent background colour

Some people like me type blind at mach 3 speed, and indeed it is easier to spot mistakes when you see the post you just put up.

Yeah I'm the same as Tom on this, I always read my posts back once they are posted and ALWAYS spot spelling and grammer errors

then push your mousie a bit to the right, and instead of "submit" hit the "preview reply", it really kicks ass ; )

You are ABSOLUTELY right Eirenah!!
More sense, Less quickly Blinds... :p
P.S. I?m falling in love with this Smart Girl everytime... :D

Geezus have a cry, who REALLY CARES...... as long as ppl are just fixing mistakes and not completely editing text ppl have already responded to what does it matter..... get over it FFS, there are many more interesting things on VJF to talk about than this rubbish... sheeeesh

tststsss MoRpH, that's the beauty of General Chat... we don't have to talk about important or interesting things, right? : )))
p.s. BrainStove dont worry, i'm not so brilliant i didn't invent "preview reply" button ; )

Gawd no....... now you've gone and done it Stove!!! :p Unedited KF, let the world tremble in fear (and confusion :p)

nooooooooooooooo! :eek: :eek: :eek:

Hehehe, No fear No confusion necessary, well ordered/digested thoughts prior posting will do the crystal clear magic... :D
BTW KF, the "Preview Reply" buttom will be helpful for you too :p
Curiously just VJC "Editors" are the ones who replied so far, Hmmmm!?!? (aside from i & kf), Hmmmm again... I guess more "enigmas" to dig into :alien:
Anyway, actually I?m more interested in the answers of those of you who were more involved in this little new Syndrome.
In fact NOW you have awaken the Monster of my curiosity :D

I always type too fast and have to edit approx half of all my posts after I send them, but I think if you edit quickly enough it doesnt show the edited by message, not sure so I'll test now by editing this post.
