How about the ability to delete or edit a pending review or review edit?

Sometimes I post a review or a review edit and I made a mistake, typo, or wanted to clarify something. How about the ability to edit or delete a pending review. Because we have to wait until they are published before we can alter them again. Sometimes, I'll have to make several edits.

Thank you...

In the future it might be best to do your review work on another platform. (Word, Etc). Then when your happy with it, Copy and Paste and submit the finished product.

I do... In Fact I did my latest review like that. I still needed to make edits. Sometimes the need arises to edit it further. It is more difficult to do this on a hand device like a tablet or smartphone, I use Pages to make the general body of text and then I paste it in. I pushed hard for the ability to add reviews from the mobile app, but the way the software is, it is very difficult to just type into the fields. Which is why I use either my Notes app or Pages or even Mobile Word if I am on an Android platform.

I am waiting on an edit now, but I want to alter it further. It's just an idea to make less work fo the people who handle contributions.

Like the Taco Bell Dog once said. I Think I Need a Bigger Device!
Hey, I'm on a PC and I have to wait for approval to edit too.
You have chosen your weapon that is small. I cannot Imagine anything smaller than a tablet to accomplish what you are doing. I carry my Fire with me at all times because an android phone is just too small.

The same problem exists in these help forums, except that, you can edit anything you post, as long as someone does not make a direct reply to it. Any way we can change that too? So that we can edit after someone has replied? I understand why the edit button should vanish after a reply is made, but maybe it could be left for about 10 minutes in case we need to correct something... In my case, typos always kill me. I just made a detailed response to a thread I'm involved in, I was able to fix most of my blunders, and then someone replied and my final fix would not post. At least the ability to post an edit after someone replies, if we started that edit BEFORE the reply was made, that way, I don't feel like 10 minutes worth of editing is not in vain...
