Hello Staff. Wondering if it's possible to give say 2 minutes to give us time to rephrase or fix spelling errors before the Edit shows in our posts? Thanks.

Hi DTSM,

The Admins. would have the final word. But you already have the option to correct your posts before posting them. When you type a reply, there are two buttons at the lower right of the editor. One says Post. The other says More Reply Options. If you want to see what the post will look like but still be able to edit it, click the More Reply Options button and a Post Preview screen will come up.
From there you can make corrections and then click the Preview Post button. A preview of the post will be shown and you can continue to tweak it using the Post Preview button until you are satisfied. Then click the Add Reply button and the post will be added to the topic.
After the post has been added you will need to use the Edit button at the bottom of the post window if you still need to make changes.

Thanks for that, Godawgs.Will go that route in future.

 

Was used to a time frame to change anything without edit showing at bottom of post.
