Third-party editing of posts

I think someone might have mentioned that it’s possible to edit someone else’s post on this forum.

I made a Google search. It looks as if Facebook might be the only site that allows third-party editing.


There’s a page in the #faqs about it here: What does it mean when my post is edited by a moderator?

Some long-time users also have limited moderation abilities to re-categorize topics and edit topic titles, but most users can’t edit other people’s posts unless they are intentionally turned into “wiki posts”.

On reflection, I have seen forum posts elsewhere that contain text similar to “[Edited by moderator”].
