If you need to make any same-day changes (adding, altering, or deleting something) to a message that you have posted which is currently the last (most recent) post on a thread, please use the edit feature and donot double-post.
Double-posting is when a board member files two consecutive (back-to-back) posts on an existing thread in the same calendar day, which, in essence, is tantamount to answering their own post. Because this is one of the few message boards that has an edit feature (which is located in the "Actions" dropdown box at the top-left of each post), I ask members that if they want to add, change or delete something on a post that they have filed which has notyet been replied to in the same calendar day, to please just edit your existing post.
Double or consecutive posting by the same member is perfectly fine as long as each consecutive post is atleast one calendar day subsequent to their prior post.
By the way, if anyone is wondering why this is so important, please remember that email notifications are sent out to members who have subscribed to a thread each time a post is filed on that thread. Therefore this policy not only reduces superfluous emails, but superfluous posts on the board as well.
