Hi Dear Kirk,
Is there a way to edit one's comment? If somebody finds out his mistakes and wants to correct himself, what can he do please?

Hello Said Abdou,

I think there is an edit option under your comment - just look for the word 'edit'.

If you can't see that, then simply post another comment.


Best wishes,

If there was one method then I think everyone would be using it! Time, effort and practice are required and the more of these you have, the quicker you will learn.
