Got the message people, and changed it... It took me a while though to think how to do it without introducing another screen. Take a look and let me know what you think... And whether it's intuitive enough now or not.

Edit will no longer delete snipes until you actually click on "Modify".

Well, did an edit and WOW! What a change. Came here to see what's up. Works fine for me. I like it. Edited item is highlighted in RED. You can CANCEL the edit and your item remains unchanged, or you can MODIFY and the edit is applied. Makes sense to me and worked well.

As for intuitive, I made several edits before coming here and without knowing it had changed until I did the first edit, and it was very clear to me as I compelted several more edits. I tried the CANCEL just to see and it worked well.

Good job, Mario!

Thank you, Mario! That is perfect! I think this will be much better, especially for new users!

Yes I like it too, thank you Mario.

The only slight change I can suggest, that might help, is to retitle the 'Cancel' button in the 'Delete' column to also say 'Delete' as when you are in edit mode there are now two 'Cancel' buttons, and that might still confuse (I mean people might think pushing the Cancel that deletes would cancel the edit)?

I like! Thanks - that's a great improvement.

I do have a 'funny issue' going on with item 180185878777 on my list (theskintman). I edited it and it now appears twice. I'm sure that earlier I noticed this, refreshed and it just showed one, but I might be wrong. It's consistently showing the item twice now.

Gary, it might be best to post this as a seperate issue as it may get overlooked here.
