There's no editing posts, as it would likely be abused.umm abused? do you now that almost every forum has an edit feature for post?
Only way to remove a post is to either contact a mod to remove it, or post in the thread you posted in again to request that both the post you made and the last post be removed.
Yes, but the NGBBS is not every other forum on the internet. None of these other forums that you refer to would be prone to the abuse that you would see in General. The very idea that someone could be banned for doing something, just as they've gone to edit it out has held back the admins from actioning an edit post function
In fact, it would make it easier for people if the top meal/B+P/exp lists were edited into the first post every time instead of posting it in the middle randomly.
No, it really wouldn't - posting it at the end of a topic is where the users looking for the updates know to go. The updaters don't get special powers and can't intermingle the updates with some posts from a few years back.
Editing the same posts would become soul destroying and would also give some of the more hardcore stat nerds less of a chance to track what's gone on over the years.

If there is not a currently a way, how could we get one created?
The NGBBS does not, has never had, nor will ever have an Edit Post button. It does not need one, though some users want one. Perhaps if said users spent a few seconds proof-reading their posts before pressing the "Post it!" button, we'd be able to live in harmony.
