First- it helps to post in the correct section so you can find the post you want to edit.

Second- you have to be signed in.

Third- open the post to be edited. There are a few stipulations to edit but normally there's an edit button in the bottom right of the post. If there's no edit then the stipulations are not met and you can't edit. If that's the case you can

Fourth- click the quote button to quote yourself and post the change(s) you want people to see.

kenya6,

Next, you can edit a message for maybe a few weeks (not sure exactly how long), after you post it.

Beyond that time, you lose the [EDIT] button on that message and it can not be edited.

Cheers,

ftfy. A valid request to one of them fine folk will get the job done . So kenya6, If you send me a Private Message by clicking on my user name perhaps I can help in some meaningful way.

Members have 12 hours from the time of posting to use the edit function. Any changes needing to be made after that will require a moderator or administrator to be contacted and request the changes.

Thanks,

Then again my problem might be that there is some grace period or one of many rookie hazing ordeals that I need to wait thru before I'm allowed to edit my own posts.


As an example: The site Administrator's mother wears azz whoopin' army boots....


SEE, I can't delete this

Yup, I guess I needed to exceed 5 posts to be allowed into this sorority.


But I'm sure I don't like the fact that anybody (you) can edit anybody's (my) posts.


I trust you'll behave going forward,, God durned whippersnappers!! (playing the odds that you are younger than me).

Anybody can't.

Any site like this depends on its moderators. Any moderator who capriciously or maliciously edits someone else's post will sooner or later find himself in trouble with the site administrators.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.
