Description: Allow users to edit their posts on GameFAQs message boards.
Rationale: This is a modern forums feature that GameFAQs is lacking. Everybody makes mistakes and misspellings sometimes. Allowing editing allows users to fix or add new information to a post.
Downside: Big potential for abuse (posting something offensive then hiding it, trap questions), but could be mitigated with heavy penalties for doing so. --- Um, not to criticize science or anything, but wouldn't it be easier just to call it "the pink one"?

Perhaps give an option for others to view previous edits of the post. Definitely give heavy penalties for abusing the feature though. --- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiCtAUrZbUk -- Defeating the Running Man of Ocarina of Time in a race since 01/17/2009. --
But in the form of appending to posts rather than rewriting them, which is a nice idea I saw earlier today. I think that would take care of the abuse concerns. --- Sign-ups and planning for the next Fastest 500 Topic http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/571773-speed-king
