I just posted and added pictures to the Success Stories Community Forum. Well, it did not post all 3 pictures. I did not see any of these options BEFORE making it public. I would like to suggest having the option to preview/edit AND deleting posts when they don't turn out right the first time...frustrating!

Thanks~

Thanks for the feedback. At the moment, the ability to edit a post is limited to the first hour after posting.

Unfortunately, there is a fair amount of misuse of the forums. If we grant the option to delete posts, or to edit them indefinitely, it allows those who would like to post offensive, slanderous, or insulting content to do so temporarily, and then remove the evidence. So, we give up to an hour for self-editing. This makes it easier for us to identify problem posters and restrict their access to the forums, which makes the forums more pleasant for everyone.

After the first hour's editing window, if your post needs editing or removal for some reason, you can always click "report post" and write a note to the moderators. In most cases, we'll have no problem removing a post that doesn't otherwise violate site guidelines.

Sorry you had a bad experience posting an incomplete photo post.

How about previewing posts before we post them? Ive belonged to many forums that had this option and it was very helpfull when posting pictures to see if they need to be resized before you post them

I'll definitely pass the suggestion along. It's not tech we currently have in place, but it's a valid suggestion!
