Could you please make the preview post mandatory?

I know it is there but we all think our writing is perfect here so we ignore it..


I hate seeing that (Edited on, by) at the end of my posts.

If you cannot make it mandatory, then maybe you could have a function that would give an electric shock when we submit a post with errors?

"Deny Ignorance" I need help avoiding mine!

Yes, but what can you "reall" do about that now?



It is a sign of people caring when they preview, it's a sign of perfectionism when they go back and insert the missing y.

Gazz, how does it affect you if you see (Edited by) at the end of every single post? It isn't you that has to host the extra space. Chill out. It isn't your nickle that pays for it. Stop being anal.

regs out...

um_gazz, why should ATS become your parent?
first, everyone makes mistakes now and then.
second, everyone has the opportunity to check their post before they hit submit--why do we need a mandatory preview? This goes against DENY IGNORANCE.
finally, we do not need ATS to become "big ggivernment"!!!!!!!!

I was just trying to inject a little humor into an otherwise crappy day... I never meant this to be taken serious.

I read a post here about bandwidth, and about it not being my nickle.

I am sorry if I have been wasting space here, never really thought of it that way.. If this thread is seen as a waste then please remove it.

If not smile! it is the next best thing you can do with two lips!

Honestly, I have to say. NO. That's NOT the best thing you can do with two lips...
(Sorry, I HAD to...)

Concerning this thread, I know it was a joke UM_Gazz, but this is NOT a good idea, for people who are still using 56K (like ME) it would just add on waiting time to our already slow Internet connection. That's my major reason for not supporting this idea.

Secondly, what's so bad about pressing "EDIT" after noticing "OOPSIES! Spelling error!" or any other error thats out there?

WHEW. I'm done. Anyways, UM_Gazz, I'm sorry if it sounded like I was aiming my crosshairs at you, but I wasn't. I was aiming them at everyone who has a somewhat similar gripe to this very argument.

Thank you all, and have a nice day.

EDIT: 1) Forgot to put quotes around my... quote.
2) Forgot to add a question mark.
3) Spelling error. (OOPSIES!)

SEE? EDITING ISN'T SO BAD!
