Happy new year everyone .... Blah blah blah
Good start to my NB year ... Wrong room

IDEA! Lots of people (not just me) initially post spoof news stories here first, by mistake, and then decide that need to delete them again when they re-post them correctly in the Writers' Room.
Since it is not possible simply to delete a post, only to edit / re-write it, this leaves contributors at a loss about what to edit their deleted contributions to - thus leaving many posts simply saying "Oh, bollocks" or words to that effect.
Lets start a story (stop yawning!) which you can only contribute to by editing an unwanted post (pleae, no cheating!)
Alternatively, we could begin a tradition of editing these aborted postes into individual short, simple slogans, 'Thought for the day' or jokes (one liners) similar what some people adopt as part of their 'sig' in some forums. They should be identified in some simple way as 'edited aborted post' by marking them somewhere with the code 'EAP' or preferably in some wittier way. I am sure there are some clever people here who can improve on this.
