I see that you have your answer. However.

If you want your post removed so you can try again, click on the triangle ! icon and ask for removal.

It rarely takes long for it to go away.

We've asked for that but the admins feel it's a bad idea. My opinion is that you should be able to edit within a minute or so of submitting, or if there have been no responses, in case of typos or if you wrote something in haste that you wish you hadn't posted. If you edit much later, you can "rewrite history," which, especially in a forum like this one, would likely only make things worse. Happy

Best I've found is to create an "addendum" to the OP

using that word if it's additional information or "correction" if you've found an error.
