Improved commenting at F1 Fanatic

A few additions to the site should make it easier to make comments and edit them when you make a mistake.

Comment boxes on both F1 Fanatic and the F1 Fanatic Forum now have basic formatting options so you can make your comments bold, italics, add links and so on. On the forum you can also post images.

Posts on the blog can now be edited up to five minutes after they’ve been posted. I know this is a feature many of you have been keen to see for a while.

Please leave any feedback on these changes below. If you experience any technical problems please do let me know in the dedicated forum topic:

Technical problems

And if you’ve got new ideas for the forum or site please post them here:

  1. Nice update Keith, I always find I need to edit something after re-reading my posts!

    edit: pretty neat editing function, although maybe 5 mins is a bit short for deciding to edit and to complete the edit?

    Great update, I always make one or two stupid errors and wish I could correct them.

    Diseased rat – Me too :-)

    Loki – I’ll see how it works at five minutes for a bit, but of course once a comment is posted other people can see it and respond to it, so we don’t want to run the risk of making things unduly confusing.

  7. Thanks Keith
    Another improvement to a great site.

    When i usually make a silly mistake on my comment i get worried people will think i’m an idiot, or it depends on the context of my comment or if you know me personally. Haha!

    Wow, thanks!

  13. Shame. When I saw the title I thought you may have banned some of the peanuts that regularly comment here. Oh well. Nice, works well.

    I’ve had to disable this change, hopefully temporarily, due to a technical glitch. Working on it at the moment.

  15. keith are there supposed to be icons to facilitate the editing – my browser shows the usual featureless textbox
