    Don't you have an Edit button at the lower left of your post? Mine are

    New users can't edit posts after 24h. This is because spammers usually post something looking legitimate and then go back a month later and edit the post to add spam.

    The forum is not the right place to post code, you should post the code on GitHub/GitLab/etc. and just create a link to point there

    Or at least, explain the code properly instead of just posting it, and then put the code in code tags inside spoiler tags. That should be okay I think. But yeah, as Shai says this isn't the best venue for code sharing.  /(⁎≧∇≦)\

    How can new user become to one trusted old user?
    Even I'll later post my code in code host(I need some time learn how use them) but I think I'm should re-edit that bad long post.

    Can you delete the post? You could just do that (or Shai can delete it) and repost it now that you have your privileges in place. But as Shai said, please don't make a wall-of-code post. In my opinion, add descriptions and put the code itself in a spoiler and it should be fine.  ( のvの) c[_]

    @Shai @DreymaR
    Thank you, now I can edit my old post content.
    But I still can't edit my old post title(I want to add version number in old post title).
    Also still I can't delete my old post(of course I never want to delete my old post, just want this is not a bug)
