Ain't nobody got time to use preview.

Mehitabel6 Fri 19-Dec-14 22:55:16

I agree- I never use the preview and only spot the mistakes afterwards. I know I could use it,but I don't want to.

usualsockpuppet3333333 Fri 19-Dec-14 22:55:27

MN don't do up to date.

i never use preview either and wouldn't really post if i though too hard about it. spelling and grammar mistakes are annoying though and i would like the opportunity to correct if possible, so 30 seconds would be enough time to do that.

It''s when you use the wrong there ,their ,they're and you know the pedants are teeth itching and starting threads about you that makes you cringe.

Hmmpf. I'd need a 3 minute edit with my phone. It's throwing teenage strops these days and ignores me.

no one's perfect.

YellowTulips Sat 20-Dec-14 02:37:14

Yes - given I just posted about my DH BF//FF'ing himself when obviously I meant DH FF DS grin

Wow - got a 3x MN acronym there confused

daisychain01 Sat 20-Dec-14 06:22:24

You could add a request to the site stuff section?

Andrewofgg Sat 20-Dec-14 06:44:43

Nonsense MrsFuzzy MN children are perfect, at least compared to other children!

You don't get to preview on the app

RojaGato Sat 20-Dec-14 08:14:48

It's not so much preview.

It's more I always think of something to add a few seconds afteri hit send and have to post a second time

RojaGato Sat 20-Dec-14 08:15:07

And then look like a dozy twat

MammaTJ Sat 20-Dec-14 09:02:09

I do! I can also post pictures! Not quite sure why I can and others can't!

badfurday Sat 20-Dec-14 09:07:45

I agree a 30 second edit button would be handy. I don't find this site very user friendly. The ap is awful and I find the site very slow to load on any laptop/pc I use.

CakeAndWineAreAFoodGroup Sat 20-Dec-14 09:12:24

I think an "agree" or "like" button would be good so the message could say "x-number of people agree with you" smile

Not wanting the reverse, so you would see "x-number of people think you're a twat" of course grin

I don't see why you can't edit your own posts either. Other forums have that tool.

ChippingInLovesChristmasLights Sat 20-Dec-14 09:12:39

No, no a thousand times no.

Thankfully MN see it the same way fgrin

...and I say that as a new ipad owner, so plenty of mistakes and I definitely don't preview my posts.

I read it as men need a 30 second edit confused
