When you edit a message to make a correction at the bottom you have: Preview Message - Spellcheck Message - Edit Message

It might confuse some newbies because the don't see a Post Correction or Make the Changes.

I don't know what the best thing would be, but something like:
Post Corrected Message
Update this Message
Apply Changes
Apply Message Changes

Not a big deal, just something I noticed that I thought would make it easier for people! Razz

Too many options confuse people extremely. I never heard of people getting confused by current selection of buttons.

I didn't mean to have all those as options...
I'm probably going to go with "Submit Message Changes"

I just noticed when I went to edit a message, made my changes and then went to the bottom and saw "Edit Message" I thought it was going to go back and let me edit my message again.

I wasn't trying to pick a fight, just mentioning something I noticed... Smile

HeHe, after thinking about it, to make it go along with the other buttons better I changed my previous message to say "Submit Message Changes" while you were replying! Embarassed

I like either one really "Submit Message Changes" or "Apply Message Changes" sounds good!
