    Unable to edit post

    I was trying to make an addition to <post#=438749>post 438749</post#> and received the following:

    We cannot proceed.

    We encountered a problem. The reason reported was:

    This post can no longer be edited because the maximum edit time has expired

    This is not necessarily an error. If you feel this is an error then it could be something as simple as your browser not being set to accept cookies. If you feel this error is a problem with the server then please contact LoungeAdmin and let us know what exactly went wrong so it can be fixed as soon as possible. Otherwise, please use your back button to return to the previous page.


    Does this mean I need to start a new thread?

    You have a choice:
    You can start a new thread, but bear in mind the consequences of the two threads diverging.
    You can post a reply to yourself in the original thread
    I can 'edit' the thread without making any changes which will reset the expiry date and allow you to add whatever.

    You are probably the best to judge which would be the most appropriate - let me know if you want to go the final route. If you do add some info, make it clear what you have done so that previous readers can easily spot what it is!

    Hi Leif

    I really just need to add a link of some sort to the beginning of the post, to point to the most recent incarnation I've brewed up. That could be a post at the end of the same thread or, less desirable for the reasons you state, in a new thread.

    Trouble is, all the <img src=/S/new.gif border=0 alt=new width=35 height=15> stuff I've added to the original post has just become [old], so I need to direct to the really really truely new stuff. Since the Starpost notice points to that first post in the thread, I thought it might be the best place to announce this fact.

    From what I can gather, it might be best if you reopen it for one final edit, where I can also state that new additions (including this one) will appear at the end of the thread. What does ya reckon?

    Sounds like a plan. A reminder to check for updates at the end of the thread would allow unlimited expandability!
    (You could also alter the subject to 'Pulling URL's - Update #1' etc for extra clarity.)

    I'll go edit'n'save it now...

    (I don't know why, but every time I see that subject line, I still read it as Pulling Girls <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> )

    A done deed! Thanks Leif.

    I'd heard that a lot of the admins, mods & MVPs go for the Lounge jobs mainly to pull the chicks.
    Didn't give it much credence till you accidentally tipped your hand just then. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
