Um, not quite. Reparenting is the process janitors (and a few others) use to move nodes between different threads. Since this has the effect of changing history, we try not to do it very often.

I believe you're thinking of the term editing ;-) and here's what the book of Turnstep has to say on the subject:

Why can't I edit some of my nodes anymore?

A: Most top-level nodes are not editable once you submit them. That's why there is a "Preview" button. Go over your post very well, for you will not be able to change it once you select "Submit".

What is a "top-level" node?

A: A top-level node is any node that is not a reply to someone else's node. This is usually starting a new discussion, asking a new question, posting a new piece of code, etc.

Which top-level nodes *are* editable?

A: First, here is everything that is not editable. Once you create these, you cannot change them:

Here is a list of things that can be changed once you create them:

Note: Material quoted because it's awfully far down on the node and it's far to easy to become distracted while reading the rest of the information turnstep thoughtfully collected.

    Having just looked at turnstep's home node for the first time (thanks for bringing it to my attention) I have to say wow! It is a very worthy archive, The Book Of Turnstep deserves a position in the tutorials section.
