in thread Site Comments.

What the others missed, I think, is how you get to the place to edit your node, although demerphq mentioned the procedure: click on a reply's title. This is called reparenting, since the page you get lists displays reply as the parent and shows the attached subthread below it. If the new parent was a post of yours, you also get a form to edit it.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    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.

    (Mind you, I know you already know this, but I figured it was worth highlighting for the sake of our new initiate.)

      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.
