How do you edit the title you gave your post(ie. for mis-spellings)?

3) It depends on who you are

Mods can probably do it,but us little people can't..If nobody has posted in the topic yet,you could always just delete the thread and recreate a new one.

Titles can't be edited by anyone except an admin.

Admins / Mods can edit the text of other people's posts but this really gets under most people's skin....and justifiably so. You will hardly ever see that done (unless I'm doing it to another admin) , . In fact, I don't recall a single instance of it. [Three instances, but not a single]-NBL

If I catch it early enough, I just delete the whole post and start a new one.

Ok,....I was just wondering if I hadn't simply overlooked something and was just too dumb to figure out how to edit them. I ususally don't catch my mis-spellings until they are out there for the world to see and you'll see lots of edited replies due to that, and then I still don't catch them all even after reading back over them .
Thanks for satisfying my curiosity...

John, you need to start following my approach to posting. I don't proof read, or re-read my posts, so they sit there typos and all, lol
