When I post a new thread, or a reply to a thread, it processes in about 3 to 5 seconds.

When, however, I edit a post that I previously made, it can take anywhere from 10 to 30 seconds to process.

I don't have anything else to do this evening while I'm waiting for the laundry to finish, so I'm just wondering why?

Beats me, but it has done it to me. :)

I do like the edit feature that allows you to correct mistakes for about a minute after posting - & doesn't post the "edited by ... " deal.

In the "makes one look smarter quicker" dept., I can use the help ....

I believe you have about 20 minutes before the "Edited by" message appears.

Yup, I was ruminating about this feature this evening. Lets me go back and take out the duplicate words I often insert insert. :D

Yep, the "edited by" has a 20 minute window.

I asked that a couple of months ago.

Editing a thread requires more recourses then adding a new one. To add a new thread it throws it in the database, adds some keywords to the search index and that's that.

To edit a thread it has to find the correct thread in the database, edit it, then find the correct thread in the search index, and change that as well.

Adding is alot faster then searching and replacing, at least when we are talking about searching 632,000+ posts for the correct one to edit.

Duh. That's so obvious it would have bitten me had it been a critter.

Unfortunatly, I'm so oblivious. :)

Thanks for the explanation. That makes an incredible amount of sense, and given what I do and for whom I work, it should have dawned on me.

¿ "..........requires more recourses..." ? :D
