    I wasn't sure if this was the place to ask but it is about the site and it has a question label so i figured it would fit. I'm asking to fix mistakes like mispelled words, typos, or grammar. Not changing the original post with complete different information. I find it bad that i do make mistake often, but then again, i am not using any guided typing like auto correct or spell check so is hard to notice until i check read it again. Usually after i make the post. I was wondering if anyone else had the same reasons.

    I have a bad habit of only checking my posts for grammar after I've pressed the Post Reply button.
    I always feel awkward when that happens, and try to do the fixing lightning-fast before anyone sees.

    If you talking to me about your previous comment, there is nothing to "answer". You only pointed out i made a mistake and making fun of which is off topic. This was a question i asked to know if others have the same kind of problem i have and you have yet to even state anything about it. So there is nothing to reply to as for anyone else here, also gave me no reason to reply.

    Thank you for pointing out my mistake but changing it now won't mean anything since you quoted it and anyone can just see it was edited. This is also about acknowledging mistakes and i acknowledge that i made one, in fact i made several few i didn't bother to correct for several reaons.:mellow:

    NOTE: I made another mistake, sam should be "SAME":blush:
    It is now with some other corrections.

    I only edit when I make a typo that could change the meaning of what I'm saying
    For example, I would definitely change one sex to one sec

    (Or when I need to add extra info, like this edit ironically does)

    Mostly edit when using my phone (fat fingers) or if the predictive text starts to be a prick and say stuff, completely random.

    Every time I see a mistake, no matter how small, that isn't deliberate.

    Once or twice per post, normally.
    Noted, because I'm such a jerk.

    I use it a lot, sometimes more than 3 times for one post.

    I'm the type that really tries to make every word count and hit hard, or at least, I try to.
    If I think I can clarify something better, I'll change it. It's a good habit to have in hacking forums where noobs need everything laid out in as simple terms as possible so they don't screw something up.

    well, english is not my mother language, so i try my best to be legible as possible, in the other hand, in spanish forums I could not care less if I misspell some words.

    I don't really comment much on the forum, but when I do, I always end up making a mistake unintentionally. However, I realised that my main problem is actually rushing to comment or post instead of reading what I typed before I post it. Since I started reading what I typed before posting/commenting, I didn't really need the edit feature.

    Edit: And now I had to use the edit feature because of actually typing a full stop instead of a comma in my first sentence. So much for not needing it anymore. :)
