    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)
