how long are we able to edit our posts? i went back to a post made earlier in the day and the edit button no longer appeared- (i really dislike typos, but ESPECIALLY in my own posts!) it's stuck there, isn't it. forever. and ever. how would that work if we decided to participate in one of the research projects where the group has been asked to simply edit their posts to add information? they've got to be doing it somehow- i just don't know the 'how' part yet.
now that i've joined and can see the member info/status, i'm overwhelmed at the number of 'banned' members. not knowing the situations or the posts that led up to the 'dreaded ban', i formed the impression that it's something that could happen pretty quickly or easily around here- so now it's constantly in the back of my mind that if i thank someone in one sentence rather than two i am 'so to the curb'! i've read the rules, but i've found i'm constantly second guessing myself and trying to remember if there are any rule breaks in there before hitting 'post'.... ok, i'm scared... i can admit that. this is all a bit new and fuzzy to me.
i put myself up for adoption. i am officially available to be molded, scolded, trained, kept in check, and instructed by anyone older and wiser in the ways of this board than i... i'm assuming ya'll would intervene if someone trolly with a ban rap sheet tried to take me up on that, right?
