Well it could have been summed up with N or F ;)

But the correct answer is:

Yes it is possible, but no YOU can't.

as he wasn't a moderator, the "no" answer would suffice, but I like your "yes, but no" much more confusing.....!

But you will be able to soon, for about fifteen minutes, I think.
Not sure when.

Is that for real robo? are you going to add an edit feature in the future? It would be quite good and 15 minutes would be long enough to spot any muck ups one has made and ammend them.

Isn't this why we have a preview feature - to check layout, links, spelling (or use the spell check)?

Be careful .. before long you will have folks requesting a further 10 minute window of opportunity to edit the 15 minute pre-preview post before they are finally happy enough to bite the bullet and press the Post button!

Ohhhhh the madness :O

The preview is like the box that comes up and says things like This will remove all files on your disk,
and sell all your wives and children to slavery,
and signify that you agree to all the terms of your EULA.
Are you sure? Yes/No
Of course I'm sure, stupid computer !!! X-( Clicks "Yes". .... ooops ....?:| Oh, excrement. :_|

When you click on the "post" button you are sure . Live by the Post button, live by the Post button. ]:)

Don't see why we need an edit, as said, use the Preview, and if you make a klutz of y'self well that's onlinelife just like offlinelife. Don't want the site slowed and cluttered with idiotproofing. :)

The basic problem with idiot-proofing is the exceptionally high quality of idiocy we have. I should know ... (I'm modest too).

The only problem is that you only really use the edit function after someone else has pointed out a mistake.

But that would be trying to remove the evidence. That's what politicians do.

Greens are having some anti-GE thing in the Square tomorrow. Expect to see some people walking around saying how GOOD GE is. ;)
