There is an EDIT button at the bottom of the frame you posted in. Might have to have 10 posts to see it and use it though.

You can always PM a Mod and we can do it.

Yes, thank you, as I now see the button in my subsequent posts however that button is still not available on my very first post and that is the one that I would like to edit.

Thanks,

Matt

This feature is time-limited. After a certain period of time (I believe 60 minutes), regular members are no longer allowed to edit posts.

mmagda, you should be able to edit by now (56 posts). See the comment above about the time limit. But if you try and edit immediately after a post and can't do it, then something's up/wrong.

Also, if you post in error, or for whatever reason want to delete the post, and you have solved the edit problem and are still within the time limit to edit, then just delete the text of you post and replace with some explanatory phrase. If you are beyond the limit, PM a mod, as stated above.

If I remember correctly, most of your posts have been in the Buy/Sell/Trade section. No one (other than mods) can edit in that section.

As Johnny Carson would say, I did not know that.

I posted my pin on the BBM forum. I would like to delete my post because I am getting random requests and it's very irritating. I thought I was just replying to one person and did not realize that it could be seen by anyone and everyone. Is it possible for me to delete a post????

You need to get the attention of a moderator to do that.

You may also want to take it out of your profile information.
