When editing a discussion, you can't add tags, pictures or URLs, in case you forget to. Maybe that could be changed.

If you forget to tag, I often retroactively tag for you. For Url's you could always post and additional comment with the URL. In the formatting guide we show how to make text link directly if you want.

Barring your ability to edit titles, URL's, and pictures is an intentional measure.

We know it is human and a bummer to just forget to tag, link, and attach a picture.

What we want to prempt, is a common spamming technique, whereby a nefarious person creates a popular discussion post, and then hijacks it when it reaches the top and changes the titles and links to promote their own off-topic or inflammatory ambitions.
