I'm new here and after adding to a conversation I wanted to make a couple of changes but can't see how to do that. How can I edit a comment after it's been posted online?

Thanks for the help!

Somewhere in the back of my alleged mind I think a poster has to have reached a certain number of posts before they have the ability to edit one of their own posts. Could be wrong?!?!

If a new member can submit a post, why would they be prevented from editing it?

We had an issue where people would sign up, post something within the guidelines and then go back to add spam. Thus, we had to enforce a rule that disallowed new folks from editing posts. It's far from perfect, but was necessary to prevent abuse of the site.
