Pinned topic Can we edit a previous post?

‏2012-03-21T15:49:22Z |
Folks,
If I post to the forum, is there a way to edit the post if I wish to add new information or correct something I made a mistake on previously?

    Hi Neil,
    Again, I'm guessing your using Chrome. Happy

    Hi Kolban,

    You cannot edit a post once it has been posted. If you divulge something that you didn't intend to, you can click the report abuse button on the post and request that a forum administrator remove it.

    Hi Jeff,
    Thanks for the response. It wasn't so much that I divulge something I didn't mean to, it is not uncommon that I post about a problem and then, a few hours later before someone else responds, I discover something new that I wish to augment my original posting with.

    I fully realize that I can post a followup posting but was just curious if I could have edited the original posting. Many non-IBM web based forums seem to allow that capability (for better or worse).
