Is it possible to add a, say, 5 minute period where the poster could edit (correct spelling errors etc.) his OWN post only instead of making a second post pointing out the error?

Yup.

Eye halve a spelling chequer

It came with my pea sea

It plainly marques four my revue

Miss steaks eye kin knot sea

Eye strike a key and type a word

And weight four it two say

Weather eye am wrong oar write

It shows me strait a weigh

As soon as a mist ache is maid

It nose bee four two long

And eye can put the error rite

Its rare lea ever wrong

Eye have run this poem threw it

am shore your pleased two no

Its letter perfect awl the weigh

My chequer tolled me sew.

OK guys, enough of the old spellchecker jokes - we were reading them on the forum ten years ago.

Well it's the first time I have seen that poem and it made me chuckle.

An edit button might be useful, but I think a 'first unread post' button might be useful especially in the longer threads.

If you set your browser options so that you do not allow pages to use their own colours, and set "Visited Links" to, say, red, then the first unread page, though not post, will show in blue, or whatever your original colour was.

Not perfect but good on a muti-page thread!

And a direct link to the last page of a thread on the mobile site would be a huge advantage.
