Product and Feature Updates about Kinja

Added Comment Edit Timeout Disclosure

Here’s a Kinja platform quirk that not many people know about: comments can only be edited for up to 15 minutes after they have been published. We’ve found that users are sometimes caught editing after the 15 minute window has closed, and upon saving their edits, are hit with a save error.

We’ve added an unobtrusive message just below the comment editor to disclose the edit window, along with more descriptive error messaging when a comment save fails due to the closed window.
