Editing discussions

Have you ever started a discussion and then after you click start discussion you want to change something about it? Either you thought of something you would like to add, or you said something wrong and it didn't make sense. I just did that with one of my discussions, I would like to add more but I will just wait and see what kind of responses I get. Does it aggravate you that you can't go back and change it or does it not bother you at all? It aggravates me a little bit but I get over it and just wait and see what happens with the discussions. What about you?

I never submit a discussion until I have previewed and edited the post to my satisfaction. If I think of something I want to add later I will put it into a comment to one of the responses. Sometimes after I have added a response I remember something I forgot to say, then I will add it in a comment to my own response. I still use the preview and edit option on my responses, so I can change or add something before I post my response.

That's a good idea. I don't ever do that. I should start at least skimming over it. The only problem with that is that occasionally it's after I post when I think of something I want to add, then I guess I could just add it in a comment somewhere like you said you do. Occasionally I think people won't understand what I am trying to say but most of the time they understand what I am saying just fine.

Yes, often, I make mistakes, and it catches my eye, but too late I have hit post response and it is to late, I even tried this once and ended up with two post on the same discussion, I hit post response, and then the tags page came up I didn't tag it or submit it so I thought I would just use the previous arrow at the top of the page and go back, I went back to the previous page, and started over again then I had two post so even if you don't do the tag page your post is still posted.

Yes they are. I don't do it often but when I do it aggravates me a little. It's not that big of a deal though. When I was new here I thought you had to add tags when you started discussions, but you don't.

Yes, I had that problem some times. Maybe its a typo or some thing I forgot to add. It would be better if there is a editing option after posting

Yeah I do it occasionally.
