Why doesn't modify work

  • Why can't I modify my posts in the anonymous section even when I'm not posting anonymously?  When I click modify it brings up my post and lets me make a correction but when I hit Save it informs me of an error and that I can't modify posts randomly.  
    I'm only trying to modify a post I made in the last couple minutes.

    Because you have to keep checking that blasted box.

    .
    When you post in the Anonymous forum the rules are different. I have to check the box (post non-anonymously) first before I write anything so I don't forget to check the box before I click "Post." But I also have to be sure that everything is okay before I post because I won't be able to modify anything later. If I click "Post" without check marking the box then I can't go back and check the box using "Modify." Once that Post button is pushed it's all over.
    .
    It's pretty frustrating to post in the Anonymous forum so I usually don't even go there at all.

    Even when I check that box, the system says that I cannot modify my own post.

    Was the original post unchecked? In these instances in general, I'd wager that it was.

    For example, we couldn't have this here conversation if this was in the Anonymous forum. 
    .
    Take any conversation on another forum and try to have it in Anonymous and it won't be the same thing.

    The original post had that box CHECKED.. And in my attempt to modify that post, I also CHECKED that (indescribable) box. I still received the answer that I COULD NOT MODIFY MY OWN POST.

    Once you post in anonymous, the post cannot be changed (except by a mod).
    Lord have mercy.

    .
    When I post "NOT ANONYMOUS" in the Anonymous forum, after I submit by clicking "Post" then click on "Modify" I cannot make any changes to my post that will be accepted by the system, because when I click "SAVE" I get an error message that says:
    .
    You aren't allowed to modify just any post.

    I just posted a new message in the anonymous forum and checked that box "NOT ANONYMOUS".  After posting, I deliberately tried to modify the post, checking that box again, and this time, I was successful.
    .
    The system seems to have a quirk in it. While this is the first time that I was able to modify my post, the other attempts have not been successful.

  • If I posted anonymously the modify button doesn't even appear so I couldn't modify if I wanted to BUT when I've checked the box to have my post identify me the modify button does appear but I still can't correct my post   I just get the following message after I've clicked Post.
