    Sorry if this is one of those kind of questions, but I searched and did not find, so i'm hoping a mod can answer this one for me:

    IS there some sort of established etiquette for editing your posts? I have started a thread with a list of songs and i want to compile them all. Is it okay for me to go in and edit the original post multiple times, adding songs as i go, or is this frowned upon? Is it better to just post again multiple times instead of editing?

    Thanks!!!

      Um, hmm...maybe you should look here & see if this answers your question:

      If it doesn't you can always PM a mod & see what they suggest.

        Hey - definitely go in and edit the original post. this will help keep it all clean and organized. if there are any posts that need to be deleted on that thread just PM me with a link to the thread and the post #'s.

        thanks for asking!

            Sometimes I write "UPDATE" in bold when I update my top post. Just so it makes sense. I think editing the top post is a great way to keep a thread organized. Like if a question is asked & then gets resolved, it helps to put an update in the top post so people don't keep answering.

                    A Mod will have to change the title.

                    Send one a PM with a link to the thread and what you want the new title to be.

                      A mod has to do it. PM one and let them know what you want.
