Yeah, umm … no.
Please refer to my earlier response to @Grubby, where I quoted the relevant part of that same document. The one which he had directed me to for the same explanatory purpose.
As part of the things which a Trust Level 0 member cannot do …
" Users at trust level 0 cannot …
Edit their own posts after more than 24 hours".
In the original spirit of “the exception which proves the rule”, it would seem to suggest that the TL0 member can indeed edit their posts so long as they do it within that 24 hour window.
Perhaps I have been insufficiently clear, but at the very onset of this digression I tried to explain that my interest was in being able to edit the post shortly after I posted it, in the event that I saw a typo or wanted to rephrase something which I overlooked in my pre-posting review.
I would find 24 hours to be much more than sufficient for my purposes. I’m accustomed to fora which let you have a two hour window for that sort of clean-up, and after that the post is written in stone for eternity unless you could persuade a mod or admin to edit it for you.
The Discourse Trust Levels document appears to have anticipated and provided for such short term edits, but apparently it is not enabled on this forum… I’m not sure how a new user could discover this without such a conversation as we are having, since there doesn’t seem to be any other supplemental documentation which clarifies that.
I find the graduated levels of edit privileges here to be very interesting, and if I am here often and long enough to earn the needed Trust Level I am sure I will find them convenient.
But that is not what I was asking about.
Hope that helps.
