Default Editing and Deleting Posts

Is there a way to edit and delete posts? I tried to figure out how to do this but couldn?t. I don?t see any options for it on the screen. I posted a few things that didn?t make sense and wanted to delete them. Thanks.

Why do both you and @AshleyK use a question mark for an apostrophe?

I don?t understand it, it makes it seem as if you are both the same person.

That is the whole point. I did not put question marks and that is what came out. I used hyphens.

There is a time limit for editing the post.,, I think a hour limit if I recall it correct.

all you have to look for edit button if you did find a error or want to rewrite the wordings and just hit that edit button and that will give you time to change it.

You need a certain amount of posts before you are granted the privilege of editing them

In the meantime ... just be careful

P.S. Don-t use a hyphen either, don?t use a question mark.
If you Don't use an apostrophe, people will think you?re ulliterate

Do not use contractions . Google your problem. It seems to be a coding problem.

Every man can appreciate 'no periods' to deal with!

Hello there,

The rule of this forum is that the user must post over "20" times in order to edit their own post. Unfortunately, we don't allow users to delete posts because it'll cause loopholes within the forum. Hoped this helped!

Best regards,

Edward

In addition to what the admin said, everyone loses the ability to edit posts after so many hours/days.
