Hi

It's all in the title.

I just posted my first message and was surprised to see I couldn't change it after posting.

With all the online activity, it's difficult to spend time on one message. It seems much more convenient to just fire away and correct/add elements later. If one post author needs to add other messages to the initial post to correct mistakes and add crucial infos, it can quickly become confusing and tedious for everybody.

There's no way this wasn't considered before so I was curious why the option has been rejected, and to share my opinion as a newcomer.

Hi Dee,

Welcome to our Community. The ability to edit was being abused by spammers. When you've made enough posts, you will be able to edit. So far this is your second. In the meanwhile, you can ask a moderator to made the edits — either here or in the forum where you posted. Yes, this was discussed, and this is what staff decided.
