    Editing a poll posting

    <post:=728,291>post 728,291</post:>
    I just noticed I have a slash where i intended a question-mark ("want the warranty.") and thought to make a small edit.
    I find that the edit button is not an option.

    Am I even more senile than i, and my few remaining friends, had thought possible?
    Have I missed something obvious?
    Is this a design feature?
    (Should I have posted this as a poll?)

    From <!help=19>Help 19<!/help>:
    <hr>(NB: Posts with polls in them cannot be edited but they may be deleted.)<hr>
    Although your edit would not have any serious effect, editing a poll after voting has started could have bizarre consequences, so it is not allowed.

    There's a help file that i could/should read? (ulp!)

    >editing a poll after voting has started could have bizarre consequences,

    Kinda takes the fun out of it, doesn't it (grin!).

    The original poll was "Should we allow Hans to edit poll postings" and the options were ....
