Can we not edit replies anymore?

Hello
After posting a comment on this forum, I noticed that the editing option has disappeared. Why is that?

This forum has been archived

At the moment, no, only a thread's original post can be edited. That however, is subject to change as the forum software is pretty much always in development.

Alright, thank you. I think users should be left that possibility, though.

You can delete a post. Now and then (ok, often) I'll notice that I've made an error, so I'll copy my errant message to the clipboard, delete it, then paste it into a new reply and make my corrections before saving. Nope, it's not as easy or fluid as a true edit, but it works in a pinch.

Yes, I would like this feature to be implemented as well. It's a little bit more cumbersome copying to clipboard, deleting and posting a new reply, especially if it contains links and formatting.

Agreed

To add insult to injury, there is no preview of posts, either (to check if your formatting is correct).
