Unfortunately no we cannot edit after posting. I recently posted a discussion and the header has a spelling mistake in it for all to see but we just have to live with it and if there is anything extra we would like to add we must do it within repsonses to the people that have responded to the discussion or make another discussion explaining the extras you wanted to say.

I have to say, this is probably one of the more frustrating things. I usually find myself typing my responses in notepad or wordpad, spellchecking, and then RETYPING the response back into mylot. I know that takes up a lot more time, but I want to make sure my posts don't need significant editting. Now, I don't do that for EVERY post (I'm not doing that for *THIS* post) but for the more long winded posts that have multiple bullets or points, and need backup documentation or whatnot, I try to edit it outside of mylot first, and then type it back in. I can't wait until I'm high enough level to copy and paste my discussions (or mylot comes up with a basic spell check) However, as someone who has been involved in the design of community software before, I know what a pain it can be to make sure everyone gets the features they want. So, long story short, no, it doesn't appear that you can edit your posts after you have submitted it. Maybe soon! :)
