    Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that after a bit of discussion, we have removed the 10-minute time limit for editing posts. As such, you are encouraged to use it to add to your posts instead of posting again in a short timespan.

    Exceptions can be made if you were the last person to post in an inactive thread that you wanted to bump with the arrival of new information. At the least, you should probably wait a few days before doing something like that.

    Happy posting, and may the Force be with you!

    Double posting is when you post two times in a row, even if it's not the same information in each post, without someone posting in between your own posts. To edit your post click the EDIT button on the bottom left of your post and edit accordingly.
    If you wish to reply to more than one person, use the "+ QUOTE button on the bottom right of the person's post you wish to reply to, it's directly to the left of the REPLY button we all use all the time. When you are ready to write your reply click the INSERT QUOTES button on the bottom left of the text box you write your replies in. A dialogue box will appear and you click INSERT QUOTES and then you can reply accordingly.
    Avoiding double posting will insure the forum stays clean, tidy, and easy to navigate.
    I hope this helps everyone!

    Technically, it's outdated since boss integrated a system that merges double-posts. So my thread's really just a relic of a harsher time. :p
