    I would like to know what others think...as tonight I posted an answer..and yes I know there is preview but as usual I didn't use it so when I read it after posting I saw I had written knoe instead of know. I was mortified but could not edit it...what do others think? I would love a 5 minute edit window to get rid of dumb mistakes.

      Sounds like a good idea to me.  It's one thing if you type "knoe" isntead of "know", because people (who aren't absolutely complete morons) usually figure out it's a typo.  If you make the mistake of typing something like "no" instead of "know" (maybe because you're in a hurry, of even if you speed type and your keys skip), there'll always be someone (who apparently needs to make sure people know how "brilliant" he is)  who'll assume you don't know any better; and then use the opportunity to demonstrate his own knowledge of spelling.   lol    lol   (It's comical - yet any number of people do it all the time, and always at the expense of the unfortunate soul who made a simple typing error).   hmm

    Yes it's a good idea.

    That's okay, we are all allowed the odd typo here and there. Go back and edit the Hub even if it has been published. By the time anyone reads it they won't know you've made the error unless you tell them. smile

      Oops, should have read that properly, if you meant you made an error in a forum post, you have 5 hours to edit by clicking the more button. Quite right, there should be the same window of opportunity in the Answers area as well.

      Good lesson for next time to proofread your Answer before posting.

        I believe it was on a question. And those can be edited for five minutes.

          Thanks WryLilt, something I wasn't sure on. A la carte, take it from me, WryLilt knows what she is talking about.
