I would like to suggest adding one more entry in that menu that show up when we click the flag icon at the bottom of posts- but maybe only for the old ones?
I do not know after what amount of time, but [at least mine] posts are closed for me for editing- I can only do that for recent ones. And I often look at my old posts when searching for a proper link to be inserted in some contemporary / new thread. And sometimes I spot a typo that I have made a long time ago. And so every time I do so, if I want it to be corrected I need to flag it with the
Something Else option- and hen describe what it is that should be taken care off
So how about there was one more option:
Report A Typing Error? And below it two windows would appear, one for inserting a copied text with the error and a second one with a place where a corrected text would have to be put? The system should of course not allow for sending of a message if both of the fields would not be filled with data and when both fields would be filled with the same data
Report A Typing Error option could be absent when editing of a given post is not yet disabled [and so a logged user can make a correction]. Or the other way around: it should be present always and available for every user, because we all can spot some obvious typos in posts of other users. But in that case, maybe the forum system should inform the creator of such post that a change has been made, so that the user in question can check if that correction was really necessary [that it was a genuine case of a typo and not just some misunderstanding]
