Can we stop "Post Response"

Sometimes I haven't got my brain in gear and I click on Post Response and then realise I should have added something else. I then have to do another response like "Sorry, I should have said"...... etc.

I think there was a post sometime ago along the same lines like "I wish there was an Edit facility" so that if it is posted it can be edited without making a new response.

yer, i agree - you should be able to edit your own posts and perhaps delete them.

id still think these forums are the bessst ever even if they didnt have those features tho :p

I expect we all do it sometimes,I normally wait a few seconds now before posting just incase I think of something extra.But I don't wait to long else VOG beats me to the answer lol

stalion :o)

I also would like an edit facility but we've been told before that it is not a practicable proposition for a site like this with so much traffic.

That would be useful as you usually think of something to add just after you've clicked 'Post Response.'

Mee too!!!

It's a great idea but I cannot begin to imagine how you would acheive that with asynchronous posts and freeform text.

VoG™ beat me to it again. types faster than me!!

Not necessarily an Edit facility, but maybe a Cancel to stop the response being posted so that anything else can be added and then re-posted?

I sit up all night waiting for a post that I can answer and still VoG™ beats me to it! :o(

it is the same as sending a email once you send your modem takes over so you can not stop it.

Hi,I think when you have pressed the button, the response has already gone and can't be stopped.
