A cheap Christmas pressie for all you commentators

Because you've all been behaving nicely, I've decided to cut you some slack and let you edit your own comments. The recently-installed plugin allows you to make edits during the first five minutes after submitting your comment, you should see a timer telling you how much time you have left to make your edit.

Abuse of this facility will lead to it being confisticated and put on a high shelf, visible but just out of reach, and I'll probably dock your pocket-money as well. :grin:

    Hmm... looks like the timer (a text thingy in brackets) appears only if the page is reloaded/refreshed. Could be better, IMO.

Have your say - submit a comment
