Uh, I was promised I would have 3 minutes to rebut myself.: It appears that perhaps the 3-minute clock on making changes to posts starts on "Preview" rather than "Post." Has this always been the case? I've noticed on occasion that when I hit "Post" I get no opportunity to edit afterwards. (As a side note, I am hitting "Preview" earlier than I used to because I'm still having that problem where the box goes all the way off to the right side of the screen until I hit "Preview," and then it repairs itself.)

In case this is relevant, I usually use Safari 1.3.2 on OS 10.3.9, but I've had this problem on other Mac browsers and on higher Mac OSs. OSes. OS's. Operating systems. Tiger, specifically.

I noticed this too. I typo'd something and couldn't go back to fix my error.

Okay, I've determined it's not just a preview thing -- the ability to edit is gone completely. Also, it's not just on the front page, but in the locker room, too. I just whipped off a quick post, and there was still no editing allowed. This is a serious problem. My IQ reflexively jumps five points once I hit the post button. If I can't edit, that extra five points of logic is gone forever. It's not much, but it's mine, and I love it.

Also weird? This guy's "last visited" is broken.

That profile is a thing of beauty JG. Lets breakdown viper-pit's comment from here with the tele-strator: Vick is a good Running back. Figuratively but not Literally. NICE. But a HORRRIBLE QB. It's the extra Rs that sell it. They should move him to RB and let him play the position he is good at. LAME. Where is the fire? The passion? The "jene se qua"? Then get a QB that can THROWN the ball. THAT my friends, is a punch to the crotch with AWESOMENESS.

I didn't even read that far. I saw his comments in the Colts thread and thought, "when did this guy join?"

Well, it looks like the edit clock is now about 1 minute, which I suppose is better than no minute.

The fact that he capitalized "Running" really shows that this guy means business.

now I want to change my nickname to punch_to_the_crotch_with_awesomeness. Damn you spofi and your limited software.

Hey the PANTHEON moved over to a new server, and wrangled a few small ponies for us all on their own. If you want a punch to the crotch*, you do it yourself. *The AWESOMENESS of your punch to the crotch may vary.
