Is there a way of Editing, Removing, or deleting your own post after making mistakes/errors. I know you have a short limited time but if you leave it a few hours you can't seem to correct it. or have i missed something.

You'll just have to add a quick reply with the corrected information Wheal :) I think we only get 10 minutes to edit posts.

Surely there must be a way of changing the settings to allow an anytime edit/remove button. I have been on other forums which had this feature and changed it. Im sure the change would be popular with the members.

If you have anything serious that needs correcting then send a Private Message to one of the Super Moderators (http://www.british-genealogy.com/forums/showthread.php?36583-Super-Moderators), who have the power to edit posts.
Just to also point out that posts will not be deleted unless they break the rules in some way. We do not remove posts on request - as explained in the AUP.

No Bother guys, I just made a mistake whilst posting a link to my website and was edited by a Moderator, Just thought the post would have looked tidier and have an immediate link to the site if it was re-posted/corrected.
The link was edited because the one-name website is commercial.
The rules regarding the posting of website addresses, in a nutshell, are - no commercial sites (which includes sites which ask for donations, as well as those selling stuff) are allowed as direct links - doing the www. on one line and the rest on another stops the forum software from creating a direct link to it. Personal websites are also not permitted, unless permission has been granted by the Administrator of the forum (and that is usually only for members who have been given the signature option or in special cases - again, those cannot be commercial sites).
It is quite good that the question was raised - it is useful to occasionally have this stuff mentioned.

No bother Mark, Probably just easier to just remove my post.
