Is there any way to edit your posts? I'm sure people have made spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, etc. that they've wanted to fix. Hell, I made an error in a thread I just made on the AP BBS.

Only through wishful thinking.

Your actual regret and shame will be on display for ever and ever, though.

They added the edit post feature with the new re-design, but there are still a few glitches, so it only works when you don't have a sig.

Edit posts


It made more sense in my head.

Well, are they really such big problems that you need to rewrite your post or otherwise nobody will understand? Also, it's not that much effort to recheck your posts before posting, is it?

The big problems with an edit button are that it's very open to abuse (e.g. posting nude/shock pics and removing them when a mod comes online) and it can cause a lot of confusion (the whole continuity of a thread is broken after people edit some of their posts). So I think it will create way more problems than it solves.

All I know is that this has been discussed about five million times and it always comes to the same result; it won't be added because it causes complications.

It is possible, you have to delete your signature, upload something to the art portal and send Wade naked pictures of yourself.

Yeah even though every other forum I've ever visited had an edit feature and no problems ever came of it.

Editing time is going to be in the new NG Map Pack, along with a free complimentary basket of blueberry muffins.

there are some bugs like the apostrophe bug

lets discuss that instead of this again
this feature was proposed and rejected
reasons for regection
editing your posts to make people who reply to them look stupid will cause threads to become incomprehensible gibberish
this is a bad thing

actually yes, i think there is a way to correct typing errors in a post. you just need to click the appropiate spot and press 'backspace' before submitting your post to the forum, or press 'enter' if there is something you want to add.

see, it is that simple.

EDIT: also, it turns out that there are no other ways to edit a post in this forum. by pressing the submit button, you automatically give up your right to edit things.


^Just another nonsensical forum post.^
