[Query] Can we edit someone else blog?

Hi Colleagues,

I have a basic question, does moderator of community in SCN have right to edit some else blog or only blog owner can edit blogs? If yes, what roles/approval needed here?

    Moderators can edit blogs, we even need to use the EDIT to perform our moderation activities like publishing a blog of new members or to ask the author to rework the blog, to add moderation comments, to guide authors.

    But I am far from editing other people blogs to make it look nice or free of spelling mistakes. Just editing the content and publishing the blog will not guide the author, he will probably not even realize that it was edited and the next time the same mistakes are made again.

    And what is the idea behind this question? Blog is a personal thing...

    • I was actually curious about this too in regards to the old blogs where the authors are no longer on SCN. This is just one example that suffered formatting issues in migration and is also incorrectly tagged. It's an old blog but I'm actually still referring people to it sometimes because it's good.

      Of course, I wouldn't expect the moderators to serve as the editors on regular basis but, as an exception, it's good to know this is at least feasible.
