    It happens that some posts are placed in erroneous sections. Most of them are inconsequentials. There is, after all, an inevitable overlapping between subjects. But a few posts are squarely misplaced.

    I know I dit it: I didn’t check where I was and I put my first post, a technical tip, in ‘New Users and General Questions’. And to this day, and possibly forever, I, and any onlookers, will live with this oddity.

    Would it be possible or profitable to our benevolent managers to move squarely misplaced posts to the right sections?
    (I don’t mind an apparent disappearing without information about the moving of my post).
    Or would it be too burdensome? Their limited time serving first to answer questions to users.

    Looking for the right section to post the first three paragraphs I found the ‘Site Help’ section with the following comments in the post

    – an EDIT button should be available, displayed within each of your posts. For example:
    January 6, 2018 at 7:38 am…………………………………..———} EDIT
    – When editing post #1 of a topic, the webform also displays the “topic title” input field, providing opportunity to edit the title.
    – Hmm, can you “delete” a post?
    – If a “delete” button is not displayed alongside “edit”… but a “Trash” button is displayed, you can use that button instead.
    (IIRC, trash’ing post #1 of a topic will result in removal of the entire topic)

    – I don’t think that it is a bug, it was decided to only allow editing for a short while after posting. I had asked about this when the forum was first set up.

    If I understand I had an opportunity to erase myself my post in the first days and republished it in a more appropriate section?

    I just do this without saying anything. Some times I may miss things. If you post/start a thread in a wrong section in my point of view. I just move the thread quietly.

    This new forum layout is still a new learning process. At least for me.

    Sometimes I drive a crooked road to get my mind straight.
