Edit Button Gone?

I made a typo on a post and want to correct it, but I don't see the edit button.

ETA: It's here on this post, although my first edit didn't "take".

The post in question is this one:

http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?showtopic=35643

The edit envelope has closed. :blink: The edit button will remain on a new post for several hours then it disappears. This is the results of the "tweaking" of the site several weeks ago from the administration.

I would vote for getting the edit button back. Having the option to go back and edit if I've decided that the medical info. I've posted is too personal / identifying is important to me.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!

Yes, I could do that, I just don't want to. I guess I'm just not a message board person - that's okay with me. I guess it's that I say things that I wish I hadn't, even though I really do feel that way - at the time - my bad. Part of it is that through these last 2 years gluten-free, my opinions have changed at times. I sometimes don't feel like I did last year, or eve 5 minutes ago. I wish i didn't care about people who are struggling, but I do, and so i let a little piece of me go out there. I offer it up because maybe it'll help someone, but then I realize how rediculous it is that I think I can take a piece of me and help someone else with it. Nonsense. I own this.

I think I won't be back here to post again, but there may come a time when I feel differently.

thanks for everything, Safe Travels, Take care, yadda,yadda,yadda ...

Kat,

We all share pieces of ourselves with the hopes that we can help someone. That's what this board is about. There is a lot of support given here. It's here to take or here to give.

You do good. Don't stop.

Thank You, I appreciate that.

I guess the fact (if you'll all indulge me) is that communication is much more than a bunch of words in a post. Believe me, I'm a huge fan of words, context, grammar, if you will, but readers can't hear Vibe. What I'm communicating now is just more of the same ... will it be misunderstood? Possibly, in fact, probably, it will - at least to some degree. Am I over-thinking? Maybe, but what happens when the wrong person says the right thing and it's taken the wrong way? I make so much more sense in person. I don't think I'm alone in this - I just think I'm less of a risk-taker than most. I'm just decreasing the odds of accidentally making someone feel crummy. I don't want to be responsible for making someone else feel crummy just because they can't hear the inflection in my voice. I'm not bummed or anything. I'm happy as a clam to stay out of forums, where things such as this exist for me. Nothing happened today or with the other thread that hasn't occurred to me many times in the past. The only difference now is that what I said before can't be changed - at least not without the type of effort that I'm not really willing to put into it.

The risk is the same for all of us. You have no control over how people interpret your words, no matter how carefully you choose them.

I just figure if somebody wants to put a negative spin on my words, it's just a reflection of their own unhappiness. Maybe I can change that, maybe I can't, but I know I'll feel bad if I haven't at least offered my opinion. And my happiness is something I can control.

I hear what you're saying, and I feel the same. I suppose that's why I do reply, and why I'll most likely continue to reply, despite my desire to withdraw myself from the forum. Everyone here takes that risk, and I know that. Thanks for offering up your opinion ;):lol:
