That's not a bad idea, but it still has the problem of no 'preview' function to make sure the photos are correct and with proper captions...

I also realize that in a thread like we have on this forum, there are LOTS of part numbers to be looked up and linked. That takes time. Without the ability to edit my own, how much fun is it going to be for the mods to make a bunch of changes? Just sayin'...

I'd like to be able to edit my posts indefinitely. Usually I read my posts carefully before submitting, but small errors (mostly spelling) still slip through regularly. Then every time I see it again, it's like a thorn in my side.

Why hasn't this been asked yet?

Why can you not edit your posts forever? Why is there a time limit?

A recent forum feature is the ability to allow the person who started a thread to have a permanent edit option. That way any important changes or info to a thread can be added at the start.

To allow any post to be edited would result in major problems. The time line of threads and their content would be in chaos. Circuits and info would constantly change and yet other folks comments relating to the original would still stand. No one would know what and why things had changed.

If there is a genuine need to have a post edited then contact a moderator using the report post button.

If you look at scientific journals they allow corrections, errata etc. but it's helpful to NOT edit an original post/idea so that you can see the thought process as it wends its way to a correct conclusion.

A parenthetical: about scientific journals -- the number of papers which have to be retracted due to bad science and outright fraud has increased exponentially over the last 10 years. What should concern folks in the US is the amount of NIH money which has gone into retracted papers.
