Edit/Delete dropdown is annoying RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • In the thread view, you have an opportunity to edit or delete your own posts. This is enabled by a dropdown which is called Edit. This alone is confusing; shouldn't it be called Edit/Delete? Even after many uses, I still forget that you have to select the item from the dropdown and wonder why the edit box does not come up immediately when I click Edit.

    Also, deleting a post is very rare, but editing is something that is used often, so the extra step is annoying.


    Make separate buttons for Edit and Delete. Getting rid of Vote for your own posts would free up some space. (All you can do is vote Abusive, which nobody would ever do.)
