I made a spell error on a recent reply to a post and it's bugging me. How do I edit a post?

You can't. It's really annoying.

DonkeyOaty · 24/03/2016 07:56

No sorry, you can't, that facility doesn't exist here

A good tip is to write your post, press "preview", proof read then press "post"

Hope you're enjoying finding your way around MN!

Nah your mistakes live on Grin

Develop it into passive aggressive comments.

For example:
I think you are being a can't.
Then blame a typo and say you meant disingenuous Wink

Cunt not can't Hmm

I wish you could. Half the posts on MN are now corrections of damn you autocorrect moments. Or irrelevant detail that the OP thinks really is worth adding a second or third post for Grin

'I think you were being a can't '.

This works so much better. I might adopt this.

'Can't' is pretty good. Sounds like a Guy Ritchie film.

I think there should be a timed facility. Any longer than that and everyone would be rewriting history.

I thought 'you're bring a can't' was the point of the post! Double bluff!

DonkeyOaty · 24/03/2016 09:31

Hah at being a can't

Reminds me of that poster who was banging on about cancel houses (she was pulling our legs I reckon!)
