Re: HOW MANY TIMES YOU POST IN THE OLE SHOP

There are pluses and minuses.  This one takes a little more getting used to.  It isn't as instantly intuitive and it takes a bit more effort to use.

That said, the ability to easily post photos is awesome.  The ability to edit posts is great.  The end to multiple user names is good.  The ability to receive a private email without having to give out your email address is pretty neat.  That it doesn't randomly send you to moderation is nice.  That you can tell what is read and not read even if you change computers is pretty cool.   The ability to put a url and have it automatically become a hot-link is super.  It seems fast and functional.

The big, fat, ugly negative about it, however, is that isn't getting much use.  sad  That's a shame.

Do you like my new fish avatar? It is a coelacanth.  The coelacanth living fossil; a survivor.  It is a creature that should be extinct but lives on hidden from view. The coelacanth just does its thing and lets the world be the world.

Well, I would never have an affair because I would never be so cruel to my wife and my children.   But, yeah, I dig women my own age.

Re: HOW MANY TIMES YOU POST IN THE OLE SHOP

An elderly Indian gentleman once shook his head and smiled at me and said how much he likes older women, because:

"They don't yell,
They don't tell,
They don't swell,
And they're grateful as hell!!"

I answered and lost it because I was no longer logged in. Anyway, I dislike this format because it requires too much searching as opposed to its just opening up and letting you choose where you want to post without looking to the end of a long thread..tell me if ah doing something wrong. If I get fed up, I will come back when I retire, if TS is still around. Some people tell me is too much work.

So Slice, about making a mistake and correcting it fine....if within a a few minutes of reading and  posting. When you have the option, however, to change the post and change the content or meaning after a length of time and after people are answering,won't it be like if they are answering to something totally different? This is not about the initial poster/s only, it is also about the readers and who wants to chime in with a nice flow. At any rate if someone takes an excerpt of the post or quotes it  before it changes what then? LOL
