New Guy (kind of)...Can’t ‘Edit’ My Post?

Post by MARICOPAA » Sun May 24, 2020 1:00 pm

Hello,

I’m a new guy...we’ll...returning old guy.

I just made a post in a thread about the wiring configuration in the Fender Marauder Type I...I made a couple typos and wanted to ‘Edit’ to correct and Re-submit.

There is no ‘Edit’ button/icon I can see or find in or around my post.

I hit the “ icon and ended up posting a ‘quoted’ version of my original post...lame I know.

Any help would be appreciated!

Best,

MARICOPAA

As long as you are logged in (so the software knows which posts are yours), you should have a pencil icon (Edit Post) next to the " ! " (Report) and ' " '(Reply with Quote) icons in the top right of your messages.

From memory there's an issue with 'new' accounts not being able to edit posts.

I can't edit my posts either and it's really irritating.

PAT PEND users can't edit posts in some forums, though they can now in Main Stage and Side Stage. Pat # users have full editing privileges. If you're over 50 posts and did not auto add into the Pat # group send a message to an Admin.

I was auto added to Pat # but I can't seem to be able to edit my own posts?

Weird, I can edit my posts in New & Reissue, but not in Non-offset guitar talk.

I probably won't get us through this tonight and this may be an impossible question, but do you recall if you were ever able to edit posts in non-offset?

We'll get it fixed up and hopefully identify and address other users similarly affected.

How does one become an ex pat? I've always been curious. Sorry for the OT.

Thanks, Tom :)
The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.

First you become a pat and to do that you've got to travel back in time and use a certain forum. Then you've got to leave that forum in frustration and come here in 2006 and start this place which makes you an expat from the other place. It's pretty straightforward, really.

I don't think so, but never paid much attention to it. Thanks!

I think you're fixed. Please try again.
