    It would be super helpful if an OP has a few mins (at least 5, say) to edit a title if they want to clarify or notice a typo. While the admins are being super responsive, I think it would help reduce workload and help ensure clearer titles if we could do this ourselves....at least for a few minutes.

    That's an easy way to share the workload and I believe FT has something similar and allows the OP to edit the title up to a certain period after posting. There are a couple of times I made a typo myself and only realized that after posting and it's already too late

    Made this mistake yesterday and felt bad about notifying my post, but did not want to be known as making a giant typo for the life of the board.

    For now, just "report" your post - Mikel and Tim are being fantastic about quickly replying and staying cheerful :)
