I gather from previous posts on the subject that members (as distinct from new members) can edit their posts. There doesn’t seem to be any reference to this in the FAQ’s. That aside it is quite discombobulating when you look back at the original story to see how the writer has developed it only to find the original has vanished. In another forum I used, writers would post new versions, or more often just rewritten sections, later in the thread. I appreciate this has its confusions too. The unwary can end up reading and commenting on something that has already been rewritten. The edit facility also seems to contradict a warning I read on the introduction that posts will never be deleted. This would be sensible as doing so could make the remaining posts in a conversation gobbledygook. The ability to edit previous posts of course can create the same problem since I can mutilate/delete the entire content of a post. It may be of course that I have misunderstood the editing rules and that only the thread originator can edit and possibly only the first post. In any case I would suggest a) a FAQ b) it would be polite just to put a note at the top of a post you are rewriting to say, ‘rewritten version below’, leave the rest of the post as was and post the new version at the bottom of the thread. I’m new here so apologies if I’ve missed something.
