    I wish that Hubpages allow our responses to article to be edited. We can edit our own articles, and I've done that with just about every article I've written. But when we respond to another persons article we have five minutes to edit, and long responses mean that we need more time. I wish we could edit responses for as long as we need to do so. Sometimes I look at responses I've made to other's articles, and see mistakes in spelling and grammar. It's kind of frustrating thinking of ways that we can improve our wording, and not having the option to do so. sad

      My question is a perfect example of this...
      "I wish that Hubpages allow our responses to article to be edited."

      It should read, I wish that Hubpags would allow our responses to the articles of others to be edited for a longer period of time."

      Although, this is a great way to learn how to be a better proof reader. I'd still like to be able to fix mistakes and errors for as long as needed.

        AnnKF, on these threads we can edit if we click on the more at the bottom and it is much longer than all hubs. My middle name is Mistakes and if you have seen some of my posts on here you see I use bold and italics, if I didn't have as much time as I need I would never present anything worth reading. I wish they had the same on regular hubs, some of the posts I write would turn out easier to understand.

    When I post a comment in someone's hub, or in the forum, I always proofread it before I click submit. That gives me plenty of time to catch my mistakes.

    If you have long comments, write them in MS Word (or whatever you use), and run the "Grammar/spell check" on it. Then copy and paste to the comment box. That's what I do sometimes.

      Thanks for that idea, Glenn.

    You can of course delete your reply and repost. If someone else has commented in the meantime, obviously you would have to say "In response to X's comment" or words to that effect. If your reply is buried in list of several comments, that wouldn't be a great solution though.

    I didn't know that we could delete our responses and repost them.
    If you don't mind my asking how is that done?

    I've spent some time looking but haven't found a way to do that unless it's a response to our own articles.

    You can't delete a comment in someone else's hub after the initial period. In some cases you can't even edit it within five minutes, based on the Hubber's settings. That's why I mentioned to proofread earlier. That's the safest way to handle it.

    Thank you Glenn,

    Great advice! I do need to take more time focusing on proof reading.

    I agree with you. Sometimes I look back at comments I have made and wish I could change them.

    Sorry, I only skimmed through your original post. Glenn's right we can't change our comments on other people's posts. It would be nice if there wasn't a timeout for changing our own comments on our own articles though. I've often come across silly typos in comments I posted in haste, but the comments are way down the list. I wonder why there's a 5 minute window after which we can't edit and there's a reluctance by HubPages to change it?
