    Why edit no work?

    When I click on edit, the post goes to plain text, and I can edit anything I want, but when I click "save changes", a little wheel just spins endlessly, it never posts or affects the original post. I made sure adblock and popup blockers were not turned on for r3owners.

    OK, never mind, I finally saw the second "edit post " button, but what an odd ball setup, why would you need to hit the same thing 2 times?

    Because that is just the way it is; with this board's software. At least you can still edit. Pain in the ass but we still have the capability.

    What really 'grinds my gears' ( Family Guy plug ) is writing a long post then when hitting reply, getting a connection error as the wireless internet burps on ya..all the post is lost.

    As Atomsplitter says, "EXACTLY"

    At least I'm glad it's not just me ! my computer shit big time a few weeks ago when I got it back, no numbers. I just figured it was something to do with the set-up.
