Why can't we edit our posts?

Dear Gransnet, great forum but I get so frustrated when I've made a post and then notice a typo or other mistake.

Could we please have a function where we can edit out mistakes please?

Love Sadiesnan

They won't let yer! hmm It's been asked before, loads of times. I'm with 'em on this. Would be too confusing.

Why too confusing. Most forums give you a few minutes to edit- with the rule that you should not add to the post after someone has replied.
Simple enough.

Other forums allow it; still can't understand why it would confuse people on here confused.

They say they don't want people altering their posts (e.g. oh dear, wish I hadn't said that) at a later stage in the thread, thus rendering all following posts senseless.

If we all bothered to use preview of course.... There would be no typos!?

I agree that it's annoying that you can't correct typos - sometimes I miss mine even if I do preview!

On another forum I go on you can only edit your post until someone else has posted.

I wish you could do it, just in first 3 minutes would be helpful??
