It would be very helpful if the original person who posted something could edit or delete it. Case in point, I misspelled Geir's name in an original post and did not realize it until I hit the button. So, I had to reply rather than simply edit. Yes, I should have been more careful and I will try to be moe careful in the future. But given that we can edit replies, I wonder why not original posts so long as it is the person who originated the post.?

Ed, I've just made some changes to the permissions that should let people edit their own forum topics. Let me know if it's working for you.
