Is there any way to re-edit a post 5 years 11 months ago #36

Is there any way to re-edit a post if I want to clarify or correct something after a later review?

I have enabled post editing for now. Please keep in mind that editing posts can greatly confuse readers of a threaded discussion such as this, so in general, please only edit posts which do not yet have replies. Typos, spelling errors, and other small modifications are certainly okay at all times.

Also note that the post will show that it has been edited (as this one has), so please check that if there is confusion.

I have to concur with Ron.

About 24 years ago, on Thursday Feb 14 1985, my EE lab assistant literally screamed at me, jumping up and down, for turning my pencil upside down in an attempt to erase something I had written in my notebook. I had misread something on the oscilliscope and wanted to correct it.

Obviously, I'm not going to scream and the reason I'm not going to do it is that the screaming is a more intense memory than the intended lesson:

Don't erase, just add. There is truly nothing to be ashamed of when you make a mistake. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with others knowing you don't know everything. The only person who should be ashamed is the one who acts like my EE lab assistant. Love is the answer.

I agree with both of you, I will use it carefully and I am sure, other members too. Thank you!
