What happened to the 10 minute limit?

Asked by josie (30926points) October 11th, 2015

On more than one occasion, I got closed out of editing an answer long before the end of the 10 minute grace period.
Just now, it was inside of a minute.
Is this the beginning of the end of Fluther as the software decays from lack of maintenance?

This is a problem with the servers that host Fluther, not with Fluther itself. I (and other users) have found that you can often refresh the page—multiple times if necessary—until the edit link reappears.

Bruce Lee got into this shit.

Hehehehe, Probably Gail’s instructions to speed up the checking and raise awareness of getting it right the first time! :)

LOL nice.

Gail; the Bruce Lee of spelling and grammar.

Yeah, and instead of just refreshing like @thorninmud said? Try the back/forward buttons or open in a new window.

Back buttons have always seemed to work for me.

Just refresh the question several times. It will let you do it. Sounds like a ghost in the machine.

I have a Response : Perfecto Fish ratio of 6 to 1. Even when we had ten minutes it was too short for my liking. The other day it was under a minute and I had to live with the thought of something so shitty left forever on the ethernet for all to read.

Yes, just happened to me! That was definitely no 10 minute grace period! More like 10 split seconds!

Try back and forward buttons next time, @ZEPHYRA.
But hurry, the time’s a ticking while you try to get the grace period back.

It got shot to shit, probably.

I tried the back forward buttons when posting a new question and it double-posted. Same question was asked twice. One was deleted…I don’t know what happened to the answer that was already posted there.
