There are edit buttons for

There are edit buttons for comments, just not for originating forum posts. A couple of suggestions... use the "preview" button to review your post before you save it. Second, there is a spellcheck icon you can use for your posts before you save them. The icon looks like an "ABC" with a checkmark below it. Hope this helps.

We need a button to edit after the the message has been saved not only for errors but also to add things you forgot and so on.

There is one.  Look undeneath

There is one. Look undeneath your post. Only you should be able to see it. But it's only active for a certain amount of time before the comment is locked down. Not sure how long.

This isn't a metals blog anymore. It's a right wing circle jerk, masquerading as a metals blog.

I don' think so, because I'm checking back only 9 minutes later and the Edit button under my post above is already gone. Maybe it disappears as soon as there's another comment?

Admin re re

Well now I'm checking back 45 mins after my last post, you have a post under it, and my edit button on that one is still there. Either you fixed it, or something weird happened on the other one.

It's 55 minutes after the one that lost it's edit button. It's still gone.

Possibly the edit button disappeared from that one post of mine because your following post was done via "Reply" and then next one wasn't? Maybe can't edit once someone has replied.

Not a bug.

You are not allowed to edit new forum posts. You can only edit comments and replies to forum posts. The topic has been discuss further in this forum area.

Edit New Forum Posts

I don't understand why the creator of the new forum isn't allowed to edit and add content to the original post. What is posted could be an on going topic with additions. I have one such as this and want to make changes but now I'm stuck.

You also said "The topic has been discuss further in this forum area." It would have been nice if you had included a link right to the area you are referring to as I have scrolled thru and have not seen anything relating to this. I really don't want to click on every post in this section to find it as there are 5 pages worth. How about a little help?

The reason is to ensure intent is not changed. Once many comments are written on a forum topic, we want to ensure the integrity of the entire thread by not allowing the original meaning to be modified. It's impossible for us to know if someone is wanting to add something new, or decide to change the entire post.
The easiest way to handle this is just add a new comment on the thread. By adding a new comment, people who are following the thread are able to quickly notice that new content is available by scanning through the forum subsections, such as the list here: https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/forums/silver

Counterpoint and request: I just started a thread on a topic with the intent of modifying the original post with updates, kind of like a FAQ/guide. It is expected to grow over time. If everyone has to wade through the entire thread to get to the relevant resource information, that's very time consuming and cumbersome. Over time this prevents thread consolidation and will clutter up the board, greatly reducing usability.

Please consider allowing original forum posts to be edited at any time by the original author, or allow us to send YOU edits for inclusion in those posts. Most message boards I participate on that involve 'serious' topics let you do this. As this is not a yahoo financial board or a sports smack talk board I'd consider it one of those serious ones.

Thanks for considering.

Oh dam that's straight gangsta! ;) I never heard of that before on a forum but it will surely keep people thinking twice before they post some negative content!
