Can this be removed or extended greatly? I have edited comments on numerous occasions and spent ages adding extra content, saved and then the added content disappears because of the timeout. It's really frustrating.
If you are going to spend a lot of time, you might want to consider doing your writing and editing in Word or another application and then copying and pasting the end result on to HubPages.
It seems a bit convoluted to have to do this. There's only a 5 minute window which seems a bit ridiculous for a comment that could be a few paragraphs long with technical details. Couldn't the timeout be suspended during editing? What's annoying is that anything typed disappears on saving and refreshing the page doesn't bring it back (unlike text capsule edits).
I agree 5 minutes isn’t a big enough window for changing comments. I think it should be at least 10.
....or maybe popup a window during an edit asking us do we want to save? I wonder what the logic is behind such a short editing time? Has it something to do with stopping bots commenting?
Just got caught out again by the timeout. I have to copy my original comment, delete it and tag on a bit to make a new comment replacing the old one. In the meantime someone places an intervening comment so everything goes out of sync.

It's way way too short. Only 5 minutes or so. If a comment is made and there's an error or additional text needs to be added, the only way to do this is to delete the comment and repost it.

I have been experiencing problems trying to post comments. When I finish writing the comment it doesn't post and the screen returns to the top of the hub. Anyone in my boat?

How do you react to hubs with comments disabled?As a hub reader, how important is it to you to be able to comment? Does it frustrate you when you are not allowed to comment on a hub? Will you still vote on that hub? Will you follow an author who disables comments? I wonder if disabling comments...

Ok, It's probably better to get things right first time and not have to edit comments, but extra info may need to be added later for the benefit of other readers. So what's the point of the 5 minute limit? We can delete our own comments after the timeout and repost, however if other readers have...

After replying to a comment, an author is given five minutes to make any changes to his/her comment. What if later on the author wants to make changes or edit his/her comments e.g. correcting gammar mistakes?Another area I would consider it useful to inclide editing feature is in Q&A. For...
