    You have not implemented edit/update ability of questions. Please provide this option because sometimes it is strongly needed.

    The request to enable end users to delete and edit their forum posts has been re-evaluated numerous times, and the final decision was to not to do so. The reasoning behind the decision is related to the fact that the forums are one of our main sources of feedback. Additionally, staff members monitor the forums and strive to answer all customer questions related to our products.

     While we do understand that there are good reasons for letting people edit their posts, we want to have an accurate record of all of their feedback and be able to efficiently keep track of unanswered questions.
    If you need to edit or delete some of your posts, you can contact us to assist you with that.

     Please, excuse us for the caused inconvenience!

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items

    I've had numerous issues with this, where I may have posted something semi confidential or made a typo that makes my code either broken, post unclear, or discloses some information that is considered private.

    In these cases, I need to make a quick edit.

    Normally in cases where a company wants to prevent a malicious user from removing valuable information via edit, the company puts in edit review functionality and an edit cap. For instance, I edit my post, my post is temporarily unavailable with a message saying that it is awaiting moderation / review, once the moderator approves the edit, the edit goes live, otherwise it is rolled back to its original state. If a user tries to edit 5 or more posts in 15 minutes, they are locked from editing until their current 5 have been approved. If a user has 5 or so edits rejected, they lose editing privileges or could be banned based on type of edit (is it malicious, etc). The other approach is a karma approach, where members earn karma for normal/good board behavior and after 15 or 50 karma points, they can edit their own posts.

    I understand you not wanting to lose valuable forum information, but there has to be some middle ground. There's no good way to contact a forum administrator or moderator that I know of at the present moment to place an edit. If there was even a place where I could dispatch an edit to a moderator to review, that'd be better than what I'm seeing today.
