    Sorry for the basic question, but I would like to edit a post that I started but cannot seem to find a 'edit' button, only 'reply' and 'quote' option is available.

    Can you please advise how this can be done?

    Thanks!

    IF you can edit (and there's a limited amount of time that you can), you'll see the button in the lower left of your message (near "REPORT"). You've only posted 7 messages, so you might not be able to edit at all until you have more under your belt. (Which, I think, is a bit silly: you should at LEAST be able to edit any message that doesn't have any replies yet!)

    Thanks for the info ThisIsTrue, looks like I need to keep replying other posts and accumulate my post count before I can update my thread before it is locked :)

    Right. You have to have a certain number of posts to have a "signature" and to put in an "avatar" (photo), too. Still, there's a very limited amount of time to edit a post even when you have lots of posts.

    There are also various levels of TMC membership which allow for extended editing privileges, among other benefits.

    And lastly, you could trying hitting the "report" button at the bottom of your post, and ask a Moderator to assist with your request.

    You have one hour to edit your commentary once you have it posted. The hour starts over after you complete your edit. Once the hour is up, you can no longer edit your post.

    Select: "more" and you'll see the edit option...

    So add a space to every post every 59 minutes, and you can edit indefinitely! :D

    Good to know. I've been unnecessarily deleting posts and starting over just because I found a typo or poor wording. This will be great. Thank you.

    So if I made a grammatical error and do not see it right away I cannot edit the mistake.

    You have even less time (10 minutes?) to edit the first post in a new thread you start. Also with new threads, you can't edit the title at all. You have to report it and let a moderator fix it for you.

    (This applies to regular members)

    I guess you also have to wait before you can like posts by others?

    Sorry to ask basic question how to post a question. It asks me to choose a recipient and I don’t know anyone. I just signed up now. Thanks

    Hi guys I am trying to figure out this website. Does it need to really be this hard to post, edit and generally use the website? Also is this site owned by Tesla or it is an independent site? Just curious.

    From the page footer:

    What are you having problems with? If you can be specific about the difficulties you're seeing, perhaps we can give you some hints to get you going.

    Hi Bruce, thanks for your prompt answer. I just couldn't find options to edit/delete a reply or a post. I couldn't find the option to edit my profile picture. I couldn't also upload any media. Not sure why those privileges are so unavailable? I read someone said you need to use the forum for a while until you get them. Maybe they need to be paid. I am a bit lost.

    Thanks

    In general, once posts are made, they're up for good. With some levels of paid accounts you have the ability to edit posts after-the-fact, but even then there are time limits. So write your posts carefully. :)

    If you really really really really need a post deleted or edited, report that post and a moderator will take a look. In general we try not to delete or edit posts except in cases of obvious errors (such as duplicate posts) or personal information being accidentally disclosed, that sort of thing.

    Hope this helps!

    Bruce.
