i know that some people get picky when other edit their posts...
and since i have edited about 99% of mine, i figured id explain before i upset someone.
i have TERRIBLE typing skills. (bet that was a shocker)
and i usually overlook alot of mistakes, and dont find them until i post. almost all of my edits are gramtiacl corrections to make my posts easier to understand.
just wanted to get that said.
And it was well said. Sort of ;)
Welcome to the human world, nightfall. I doubt many of us would qualify for an English teacher position. So you fess up to editing posts, most of us edit and that is why the function is there. Some of us should use it more; I amoung them.

I edit sometimes. My spelling is pristine and I feel that I'm as good a typist as one person can get. *bows*:D
Well, I try to type my best and try to manually spell check.
But I usually find mistakes after actually posting
Edit: Typo :bugeye:

I take my time when posting...use dictionary.com if you're not sure on spelling something...that's what I do :D
This took me 5 minutes to write.
Edit: I forgot something...click that button that says preview post and re-read it before you post it...to see if it makes sense and catch typos.
I just reread my posts a stupid number of times before I actually post them, and even that doesn't always work.
I think I write a whole lot of run-on, too.
Question, does it take more bandwidth(which we are having problems with)to make a post to say, add something you forgot to mention(before anyone alse has posted a response) or do another post to include it?

You waste more bandwith asking your question and replying to it.
I don't know technical stuff about servers or the internet.

The bad thing about editing posts is that it doesnt edit the title's, too, when you edit them! Well, it doesnt for me :rolleyes:
I'm used to typing really fast- thus I sometimes get stupid typos.
another cases are when I've just forgotten the word:D
