You have five minutes after the creation of a post to edit or delete it. It used to be longer, there were people abusing it and it was changed.

It would be great if one could edit information which is no longer applicable when there has been a change to something offered by Verizon Wireless.

The old information can still be applicable as you put it for record purposes of what used to be accurate. If you haven't seen it, some of the old discussions have been locked to new replies because they don't apply anymore or the information contained in them is outdated.

No.  This would be a bad idea.

Deleting or editing posts after a longer period of time has the possibility of materially changing the context of a thread particularly if a lot of subsequent posts have been made.


If a poster goes back and changes their post, it would potentially make all the following posts nonsensical or skewed.

If you have additional information to add to a thread, you should just do so in the thread without editing the original.

Unless you can make the edit before anyone has responded, hence the 5 minute time limit for edits.Smiley Happy

I posted for the first time tonight and my post locked within a minute. (Although maybe I'm on a lucky streak.)

It's kind of a big deal that you cannot edit your own posts.

It's kind of a big deal that you cannot delete your own posts.

It's kind of a big deal that you cannot delete or deactivate your own profile.

Immediate message locking and perpetual account permanency should be made aware to the user by Verizon, without the user's having to search for how to do it, only to find a post from 2014 extolling the virtues of why they cannot.
