futureme.org should...

Allow users to edit their messages.

Say you just wrote a private email to yourself. Then you decide that you want to make it public, but you want to go back and take out some personal information first. Or maybe you just want to make some small changes without having to send yourself a new email. This could be considered cheating, but maybe you could only have the edit option available for 24 hours after creating the email or something.

        I entirely agree with the 24 hour rule. I just faced a situation where I sent 2 really great messages to myself for December of this year, but accidentally sent them to 2013. I couldn't change the date they would be received, and then I couldn't just open up the letters and copy the contents so that I could send them again. How disappointing.

        Yes please. Allow users to edit message for 24 hours before setting all the details in stone.

        Hope this changes.

        THIS! I might have put some names and personal info in my letter, and accidentally made it public! Huge mistake...

        yes I would definitely like this, because I put the wrong year down on mine, but I don't want to delete and re-type my letter because it had some really insightful s**t in it :D

        hmm...good points....

        the concern, and why we've never enabled editing, is because of the "cheating" factor...

        but i like this 24 hour suggestion. or maybe just after email verification....

        good ideas...consider them under consideration...
