I wish there was a way to be able to correct our posts when we make mistakes

I just started a discussion about working keywords in your blog to improve Google ranking. But the content of my discussion was totally different. I made a mistake and in the discussion I wrote about reciprocal linking between sites to improve Google ranking. I forgot to change the title of my discussion. So now people will click to read my discussion and find out that I am talking about something else. I wish there was a way to change the title. Do you think that this feature is important for mylot to add it?

Yes I think they should as sometimes that happens and then it is gone lol and to late But I don't think they ever will to be honest as I think to many could mess around with it If they do it would have to be that you can only delete a Discussion that you wrote there and then but not ones you have had there for a while

I have been wishing for that as well. It looks like we need to get used to the preview function more so that we would make less mistakes while posting a discussion. However, if you have a slow connection, using the preview function would be such a pain. It would be one improvement or enhancement that myLot can consider for the future.

It may not be right to add this feature. Once a discussion is posted, members post their responses adhering to the content of that discussion rather title. If a discussion is edited time to time whether on its content or title, then the responses already posted lose its quality and thoughts that intended to original discussion or may not be germane to the edited one. I think in view to it Mylot provide 'preview button' and wants us to use it prior to our final posting. So we should be very careful. It is obvious to do mistake and we can not always be right. Sometimes I forget to check spelling while posting and feel very bad for my mistake. However there is a way to rectify our mistake. When a mistake occurs after posting a discussion, immediately it may be clarified while commenting to very first response so that others can be aware over the mistake. Hope it may work, though not fully but some relief. I think it will be better to intimate Mylot whenever we post wrong. Thanks Votreamie for the important discussion you started.
