Currently on MonoX Wall one can delete their older posts but can't edit them. It used to be like that with Facebook too, but some time ago they changed that allowing you to edit older posts.

However, Facebook has gone one step further and shows an "Edited" link under such edited posts that when clicked shows the Edit History! This is probably to prevent people editing older discussions to make other people replies to them appear bad (by changing the questions asked) - in such cases the edit history does help. But the edit history doesn't help much if you said something you want to correct (e.g. leaked some info that shouldn't be there) and want to change it without the old info remaining in the system, neigher want to delete the post and break the logical sequence of the conversation thread.

What I suggest is to have a web.config option to allow users to edit their posts on Walls and not have an edit history feature (not sure how many users have discovered it in Facebook at all anyway).

btw, apart from topic creator, board admin and site admin and maybe some moderator roles should be allowed to edit the topic title in the topic page

not sure if admins/moderators should be able to edit wall posts of others - maybe for consistency with forums they should, although with a wall people might not expect that somebody else could put words in their mouth (if edit history which shows who edited the post is used for wall posts as in facebook it covers this concern a bit I guess, but then again one might start expecting history to other places editable by admins, like forum posts)
