You, our readers, have long asked for the ability to edit your own comments after you have clicked on the “Submit” button, and now you can.
Once you submit your comment, you will be able to edit it for 10 minutes. Sorry about the time limit, but this is the only way we can implement this feature and still keep the site safe from hackers.
We have also added a spelling checker, a feature that is near and dear to me, since I’m dyslexic. There is also a button that enlarges the comment entry window.
Finally, if you change your mind about the whole comment, you can click on a button to request deletion. You can’t delete the comment yourself, but it will disappear into the comment moderation queue.
This is the first of several new features we are planning to add to the site to continue the process of making it more and more into a community for offshore mariners, both experienced and aspiring.
Please let us know how you like the new feature and if there are any problems with it, by leaving a comment on this post. Also, please leave a comment if you have suggestions for future improvements to the site.
