More often than not when I am going to post on a forum I find myself clicking on the "Edit Post" image of the post I want to respond to instead of remembering the "Post Reply" buttons at the top and bottom of the page. This, of course, errors to "Only admins can do that". I don't know if this has been ingrained in my mind by my other frequents to different forums or if this is typical user behavior. Just something to think about.

Paul,
That's a good enhancement request. We currently have a backlog, but I'm sure the issue will be resolved one way or another at some point.

I can tell you that this is even more embarrassing when you *are* an administrator - I can't tell you how often I started to accidentally edit a post instead of replying to it. Fortunately, until now I've always noticed before committing the changes...
