you could just delete your comment and write it again but fix your typo, or if you typed something long then you could just copy your comment, delete it, paste it in a new one and fix what you needed to edit
That is technically spamming. Why? Because people get notified, and will then see "[deleted]" among with it. And when you have to correct multiple times loads of useless notifications are generated in the process. I don't know if this system can even e-mail notifications (I am so used to turn that off first thing I do when I join a community, that I really don't know remember) this can even be more bothersome.
So all-in-all- what seems like a clever remark, turns out in the end to be the result of overlooking a few serious issues.
Some typos can easily put some text in the wrong context. Especially in comments on "heavier" subjects such as ethics and politics this can be bothersome. Some things that can thanks to a typo really work against you. However, what is also true, is that some people abuse it to edit messages in which their own words were used against them. Some sites use an edit timer of 15 minutes for that (sealing the edit function once the time has run out) reason.
No you shouldn’t. Imgflip would be a confusing chaos if you could. The comments and context wouldn’t make sense, and upvote beggars could get off more easily. You can always delete and resubmit one as something else, but ability to edit after posting would make things crazy.
3 ups, 10m,
Think of all the people who gave an upvote to
Now, the owner of "puppies" waits to gather sufficient upvotes.
Front page! Wooooo for "puppies"
Owner if "puppies" edits the post, post is now "I love and support hitler"
All those upvotes now seem to love and support hitler.
I disagree. If you make a typo, it's not hard to make another meme. Even after you generate the meme, Imgflip gives you the option to "Change Settings" before you "Go to Image Page" or whatever. You don't get to hand your essay in, get it back, notice your errors and THEN change them. It's your responsibility to correct those errors yourself before you submit.
