    I started a Twinkies thread and noticed after the post that I had mispelled Twinkies. I found no way to make an edit to the Title of the Thread.

    (I did notice that it got corrected by someone :) )

    Is there a way for me to edit it?

    I've done that a few times. The good moderators have corrected it for me.

    You're just going to forever be known as the guy who spelled Twinkie wrong. ;)

    I usually spell accurately, I just had twinkies stuck in the keyboard.

    But I am strong, I am resilient, I can live with yet another name.

    Mods can edit titles. Ask us if we don't catch it.

    Of course, while we are sitting around the Mod Lounge having our morning coffee and danish, we will make you the object of scorn, ridicule and derision.....

    and that is the best way to deal with, heck I even joined in.
    Thanks for the ridicule. It keeps me humble . . and gives me new topics.

    Flag it for misspelling and the mods and I can correct.

    As best as I can remember it was mispelled as
    Twinkeins

    I thing it suffered from a "Too Many Fingers On KeyBoard Error"

    probably not as exciting as you had hoped. . . .

    I know I am disappointed :(

    If it's your thread, can't you just:
    Go to post #1
    Click - Edit
    Click - Go advanced
    Change text as required.
    Click - Save changes
    Repeat as needed.
    It's worked for me in the past.
