Editing posts in Issue Tracker


While as the coorindator I have the ability to edit posts in teh dicussions (foul languge, error correction etc)
There is no such option in teh Issue tracker comments.

There should be a way to me to edit (atleast my own) comments to correct any errors/updates for the issues.

+1. This is quite annoying. My own issues should be editable by me. Also my comments should also be editable. I tend to post my comment before spellchecking, and edit it afterwards, but on codeplex I can't, and I always feel like a fool who can't write properly.

This is a duplicate of 21569, 25608, 25813 and 22139 (part c)
This sum up the current votes to 22 ;-)
Is somebody going to address this?
(Hope I have no typo in this comment...)

One technical obstacle around this is that for TFS projects, TFS does not allow you to edit the original description of the work item.

Yeah me too. Sometimes, I want to correct some error spellings.
or correct some error links.

+1 for the same reasons (like spelling)

This is beyond ridiculous. The lack of basic functionality like this is why I absolutely loathe projects that use CodePlex.

Is this really open for over a year? I cannot understand, this is basic stuff.

We cannot really be expected to discuss code and difficult problems with confidence and speed if we have to be so careful we don't accidentally post a typo or copy-paste error and compromise our effort.

No wonder all serious MS Open Tech projects move to Github, codeplex cannot deliver on basic modern UIX.

This results in threads being needlessly long quite often

since you can't edit them with information you might have missed ^

haha, it's still an issue since 2012. thanks microsoft for being that retarded.

I would remove my swearing but can't modify my comment... too bad.

Bartvds wrote May 20, 2014 at 10:53 AM

This kind of stuff is HURTING the projects that are hosted on Codeplex. Using this side is dreadful. I'd really like to get involved with some of the projects hosted here by no waw I'm going to spend my free time fighting this nonsense.

Why would any sane developer chose Codeplex over Github?

It is ridiculous beyond belief.

Oops.. typo. Well, it will have to stand for eternity now.

Quickly posting during working hours.. mistakes definitely slip in. Developers fix things, it's driving me a bit nuts knowing about something & not being able to correct it ⊙_ʘ
