Can I edit my post?

I see that the list at the bottom shows "You may edit your post", but I do not see any way to edit my post... no Edit button.

You only have about 45-60 minutes to do so, then the edit button is gone.

You can edit your recently posted message by clicking on at the bottom your posted message.


However the ability to edit a post "times out" and the disappears 45-60 minutes after a message is posted.

Members can edit their posts up to 60 minutes after posting.

After that, please contact the Help Desk via the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the forum page for assistance with editing.

Well, this is unfortunate. I tend to post a question and walk away for a while and if I realize a mistake or want to change an image I cannot do that. I feel this should work like every other forum and allow ownership of a post to the person that created it.

Just post an update if the initial edit period has expired...while ownership of a post is great, edits made later could confuse the posts that follow in a thread.

And, as Dirk (Route66) posted, the site staff can correct things if needed later.

Forums benefit from an exchange of ideas and updates from the OP are typically good - especially when a problem resolution is found.

Thanks for contributing

I was about to ask the same question about why we can no longer Edit our own posts, when I saw this.
I agree this is a silly policy. Many of us are multi tasking when we're replying to questions here. Just because I went to finish lunch, or answer a phone call and don't catch my spelling/grammar/wording mistakes in 45 mins, I'm prevented from making any corrections. I'm sure not going to bother staff or make a whole new post just to make a few corrections.
its these type of dumb & annoying policies that drive helpers away

This is very unfortunate if you cannot edit your own posting. I just realized this morning that I had made an error in spelling in a post I made last night. I spent a considerable amount of wasted time looking for a way to edit. This will deter me from making a post in the future. What a shame!

Don't worry about it! Half the posts on here have spelling errors!

I discovered this issue this morning. Whatever the reason for the policy, I don't like it.

If you feel it is necessary to change or correct something in a message that you posted, (and which you can no longer edit), you can simply post another message and explain that message #XX should read " this", (NOT "that").

We do have a small window to correct our errors. But, this problem is not only here. A friend of mine, a school principle, signed his name to a phone voice recorded text message "horny" instead of "Ernie". Talk about need to edit!
