I hope you didn't think you were addressing the Web site editor with this post, as she isn't known to follow the forum much. If you need to contact her, PM (private message--upper right of this screen) Laurel directly.
Your category correction (not sure how you did that) would take the same time as a new submission--so it should take about three days to kick in.
Also, the editor reserves the right to set the category and doesn't always take the author's request on that, so you might not see a change.
And, yes, I've also had problems attaching "Edit" (or "Delete") to a long title that already takes up the maximum number of spaces. I don't know if there is a satisfactory answer for that one.
