    Does anyone know please if there is any facility for deleting or editing our own posts? If not, why not?! I often find I would like to correct my spelling and typos etc!
  2. Hi Ceri EB

    You cannot edit or delete your own posts but there is a preview facility tab that you can click on to check your post before it is actually posted. Failing that, you can always ask us to help. Just click on report abuse or provide a link to the post and tell us what you need.
  3. Hi
    I am pleased to let you know that we have been testing timed post edits for two weeks in Personal and have just introduced it into Opinion. There have been no reported problems with the function to edit posts within 2 minutes and will roll it out to the other forums in due course.
    The purpose of timed editing in our forums is to give our members the opportunity to correct any mistakes after posting.
    Ignore the 'Edit Notes' field. The 'Current Edit Notes' box tells admin whether and when a post has been edited. After 2 minutes, the edit button should disappear once the screen is refreshed.
    If it's too late and you need us to edit a post for you, drop us a line at Internet_Editor@tes.co.uk with a link to the thread and post number along with the change you require and we'll change it for you.
