    Especially since HP plans to move our Questions to our sub-domain. There should be a way to edit the wording in the Question asked. It could be like the way our replies in forums or comments section of hubs. There we at least have 5 minutes after hitting the submit button. This allows the chance to correct any mistakes to be fixed.

      Sounds good. Or maybe a way to add "extra updates" to a question.

    If questions are associated with our subdomain, I think we should have a permanent right to edit questions, just as we have a permanent right to edit hubs.

    It would also be useful to have a spell check run automatically on answers, forcing the answerer to correct any misspellings. Otherwise, I fear that if I do ask any questions under the new regime, I will end up deleting the majority of answers for poor spelling and grammar.

    Did any of you actually read the blog post on this from two days ago?  This thread was already addressed before it even got started.

      Yes I did Relache. And NO, this thread was NOT addressed before it started. I suggest you read this original post again carefully!
      And...where did the blog address the issue on Editing in the blog? It did not.

    Agree with Michael that the HP blog says nothing whatever about being able to edit/add to questions once they have been published. They only option, presumably is to delete the existing question and resubmit the new version, which I guess means having to wait until it disappears from the Google cache so as not to get hit for duplication. 

    It really is a fairly key question and it would be useful to get an answer.

    I just read the blog again and saw nothing there about editing questions, maybe it's just us and maybe Relache is seeing something we are not. smile

      The day "after" I made this thread, Simone mentioned they were looking into it.
      "We might add an ability to fix mistakes in a Question soon after asking it, but the problem is that once Answers are submitted, Questions should not be changeable. The current option can work in a pinch: just delete that Question and re-ask it."

      edit: Cardisa, Simone made the comment in the comments section on the blog.
