    Whose idiotic idea was it to...

    ...send your edits of a post into the ether if you happen to submit it after a twenty minute deadline?

    As far as I can discern, there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to edit your posts for all eternity. In any case, under no circumstances should a post be allowed to go poof! In my opinion, the usability of this site has gotten worse.

    At the very least the post should be saved somewhere(pm?), or a new post automatically started containing edited yet unsubmitted text.

    I agree, this has happened to me and it would at least be helpful to get a message saying "sorry, time limit over" or something like that, with the text still there for you to copy or do something else with.

    That makes sense.

    That's good feedback, thanks.

    I imagine the idiotic idea belongs to vbulletin.

    We'll miss you, Dan Schulz.
