Nope, just be sure to double check your replies before posting.

It has been suggested countless times by now, but I don't think the admins ever even considered adding it. It's kind of prone to abuse and it doesn't solve any real issues. You're supposed to check your post before posting and if there is something you really need to change or add you can always make a double post.

yeah ok,
it's just that a topic of mine about recruiting teammembers for a game collaberation has out of date info on the top and may give readers the wrong idea about the game.
Or in other words. they have to read the entire topic and replys to get the correct idea what the game is now.

Guess i'll be forced to create a new topic then

In situations where you're posting information that will change over time, what you can do is make a news post with all the relevant details in it and then link to it in your topic. Since you can edit news posts, it'd be possible to change the info on your blog and still have it linked to the first post of the topic, since editing the news post doesn't change the URL of the blog itself.

yes, you are right. there is no (and will never have) edit button, and i don't think there will even be a preview button. no justification is needed here though because it is entirely down to the admins.

you don't have to worry about small grammatical mistakes in your posts as no one pays attention to them. think twice before posting and in case you really want to amend or clarify yourself it is okay to double post occasionally as long as you are contributing to the thread. (everyone makes mistakes after all)
