Can I edit the subject line in my own post?


I want to show in my post's subject line that the problem is still "UNSOLVED". Can I edit my own post's subject? If so how?

TIA

RJ

Uh. I think you can't. Try editing your post. That will bump it.

Thnx - pity. I know you can on some forums. Good because people who are helping others can ignore the ones marked up as solved. I have bumped mine but as you know, once it has a couple of replies, it can get ignored.

I am desparate now, as I have lost my desktop after a routine update of Suse 10. I am typing this on a windoze machine (at least MS updates don't crash win xp)

Maybe I'll try another forum.

This should be a banner headline across the World.
Code:
MS updates don't crash Windows.
lol
Really though.

Why can't we change our own post Subject line that shows in the forum? I can't count how many times I've posted, only to realize later that the subject can be stated differently, or spelled correctly. A simple change would help.

It's something we'll likely allow at some point in the future, but historically the permission system just hasn't been granular enough.
