Editing Posts: How do I edit--or, if need be--delete--a post I make? Or is that strictly the territory of the moderators? thanks

These people are harsh, make a typo, get a fact wrong, or post a pile of old cobblers having taken a drink or three, and it is there for posterity. Cruel, cruel, cruel

I never make mistakes...

Just pull out a sharpie and highlight your mistakes on your screen. Or send me $10 for each mistake and I will remove it for you.

We're not really monitors, more of a cabal, but we're the only ones that can edit or delete posts and comments. Do you want to change or delete a post, or is this just for reference?

I wrote a message board that has a 10-minute window in which a comment can be edited by its author. I'd love to implement something like that here, once we're running on Expression Engine.

As much as I hate emoticons, I gotta make an exception for dancing bananas. Never gets old.

Since it doesn't look like I'll get to use this any time soon, I'm putting it in here:
