How can I EDIT?

After edit disappears from comment-how can u edit or cancel post?

  1. Click to Upload a photo (10 MB limit)
  1. You can't. You can flag the post and ask the mods to edit it, but I think that rarely happens. Best bet is to simply "answer" your own post with the updated information.

    1. You can use the "Flag" option under the post and ask us to remove it so you can repost, or let us know what you would like to edit in. We're happy to do either, but bear in mind that there's no way for anyone who read your post once to know that new information has been edited in, so if there's a crucial change to make, it's better to have us remove it and repost, or, if there are already responses, to follow up with a new post.

      1. I used flag and also reply to dete a sentence and nothing has been done

          There's not always a lot of us around on weekends, so we don't necessarily have a chance to deal with things right away. We've done it now.
