    You cannot edit YA questions once they ate posted. All you can do is update them by tapping or left clicking either the "Edit" button or the pencil icon and clicking of tapping "Update."

    You cannot delete YA questions once they have answers. Verizon/Yahoo owns the question and all the answers. This has been true for years. People would maliciously edit and change their questions to turn legitimate answers into violations and then report the answers as point gaming ot ToS violations if they didn't like people who answered the question or how they answer questions. ©

    All you can do is update a question once it is posted. You cannot edit them or comments on answers.

    Because once some answers had been posted, some askers would abuse the system by changing a few words in the question to make the answers look silly.

    It's every asker's responsibility to check through their question carefully before hitting 'Submit'.

    But if you still need to correct something, or add extra background, you can click on EDIT and post an Update.

    The browser's spell check should underline questionable words before you submit. However if you use a correctly spelled word BUT it's in the wrong context for your post or not the correct word you wanted to use, the spell-check won't catch that. Proof reading is very important.

    Why is THERE , not their!

    I suppose they expect you to check before you post. You can always put a correction in your update.

    You can simply copy and paste the question to the question box. Correct. Delete the old and post the new.

    Because when they had that people would ask a question : "Are you a doylem?". Then when they got some answers "correct" it to "Are you a golem?". Just to make people answer "Yes" to the wrong question!
