Can't edit suggestion posts (or any posts) once they have been commented on.

It's going to be extremely difficult making polls without have the ability to edit posts on GS. If you make an error you're SOL. We'll have to keep making new posts again and again to update suggestion threads and it will be very hard to follow what is going on. Please remedy ASAP.

Hi Jen,

You should be able to edit your post before it has been replied to, but you will not be able to make changes once you have received a reply. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Steve,

This is not simply an inconvenience, but a major problem when refining a poll. Refining polls depends upon incorporating comments from other poll authors and updating the original post and list for the poll accordingly.

Note: This is an issue that I identified shortly after the announcement.

I have the same problem. What should I do? Should I create a new discussion thread for the poll I want to refine?

No, you can refine your list and post the changes in your thread. A few of us can make edits as admins, and if we see your edits we may update your post or its title.

Hi Peter,

That's so good to know!  Do you think you'd be able to edit my suggestion here when you get the chance? I've edited both the title and the description since posting it.  Thanks in advance!

Hi Laiath,

I updated the title of the thread (here) to:
Poll Suggestion: With Great Power Don't Necessarily Come Great Wits

Is there any other updates you wish to make to the original post in that thread?
