It is great that a facility has recently been introduced to edit the KudoZ questions. I understand that the editing may be carried out in these respects only:

1. Change in language or category

2. Field, general

3. BSO Category

4. Field specific

Could someone please inform me whether it is possible to edit the contents of the questions? Sometimes, we realize that there are spelling mistakes in the question or some words are missing and it would be appropriate to correct and add the same, respectively in order to attract precise and accurate answers.

Does this provision exist at all? If so, how can one do the same?

Thanks in anticipation)

Context is also editable Dec 27, 2003

If I browse to one of my questions and click the Edit Question button, the dialog that opens does allow me to edit the Context field as well (on my screen it is hidden at the bottom and I need to scroll down), no prob whatsoever.

My settings: KudoZ new design, Win XP, Opera as my browser.

The Context field is editable even I revert to old design - just checked.

Try toggling betweem Old and New interface (clic on "Switch to new design"/"Revert to old design" in the top left corner of the screen), it might help.

Best luck

Where can you find it? There is such a possibility in the Standard Design, but not in the new one. At least I can't see it... But even in the Standard Design I can't change the content of my questions.

Hi,
You should go to "My Glossary" and choose the question you want to edit. You can do anything you dream of - edit or add info to the term.
I hope it will help

No, it is not possible to edit contents of questions Jan 23, 2004

It is not possible to edit the contents of questions, since doing so could render answers already submitted (or in the process of being submitted) irrelevant. It would not be clear that answers were submitted on the basis of different info.

You can make corrections by using the asker note feature.
