As we can't edit our message, I think it could help to have a preview message button on Ask GBAtemp.
I always preview my message before posting. I re-read the message on the preview form so check for errors.

I see we can insert bbtag "b" "i" and "img", the img could be incorrectly linked and noticed only after submitting the answer.
Or allow editing as long as there's no new answer ? (but I guess you removed the edit for a reason).

An ajax preview bellow the typing area would be great.




Unrelated PS : I just saw the Auto-search and suggestion feature when writing this topic title, it's awesome

You can't edit messages?
I thought you could.
Is there no little edit (

) icon on the top right?

I can edit posts by double clicking on them as well.

If you double click your question 'topic', or if you click on the little pen on the top right of the post, you'll be able to edit your question.

Though this doesn't sound too bad, because it makes you look less stupid when you accidentally mistype a tag and only notice a while after, when lots of people have already seen the question topic.

EDIT: FFFFUUUUUUUU- tj.

Ok, I saw the pen icon now

I was looking for the "edit" text button.
Sorry for that topic then.

Though, a preview could be useful, to see what it will looks like before posting.
It's not urgent, just a plus.

Edit : Double clicking the message to edit is great
