an edit buttton??

not entirely on topic, and i'm not sure if its ever been mentioned before, but we could really do with an edit post button, so we can correct typos on posts, without needing to make a new reply to a topic.
any one else agree, or get any other ideas that would be useful on the forum??

I think it would be an excellent tool!

Fully agree, and also a preview button so we can see if our links are messed up before finally posting.

It would slow down the forum with much more access to the servers as people previewed and edited their posts. This forum is unlike most others. Posts flood in at 1 a minute.

Use an edit box spell-checker like iespell, tinyspell, or Aspell (in Opera), and copy URLs rather than typing them. If you do make a mistake, just post again to correct it if you think you must, but people understand that very long links sometimes go awry. Some people use click here to make shorter links to post here.

For long posts, use notepad, and save to disk, just in case the connection goes down before you can post it.

yeah, but even if it isn't to correct typos, it can be used to add more info, which you forgot in your first, which will, overall, cut down the amount of actual posts, from typos and missed out info
any one else got an opinion??

If PCA wanted an edit button there would already be one here.
