A little help?

Does anyone know of a way that it's still possible to edit or delete an entry? Because for me, any attempt to do that leads to me being redirected to a page called "Edit Journal Entries" that allows me to choose to edit an entry... only to be redirected to that page again.

You probably noticed this entry - I was trying to write commentary on that entire entry, but I couldn't finish it all that night, so I decided to set up what I had so far as a scheduled entry to be posted exactly 5 years after I first did that meme, which would be tomorrow, and then finish it later. The problem is, I forgot to postpone it and so it was posted then, and now I can't edit or delete it. All I can do is finish that entry, post the final copy of it as a separate entry, and hope that this all makes sense to you...

Yes, it's definitely still possible to edit or delete entries! Just tried them both.

I eventually found out that the glitch only happens in Internet Explorer, but thanks :)

I don't know what to tell you, broseph. I'm able to edit my entries as normal. Maybe try using an LJ client (like LogJam or Drivel or whatever) to see if you can edit for there?

I eventually found out that the problem only occurs in Internet Explorer.

I decided that the unfinished entry I'd posted by accident had been up long enough that I might as well leave both that and the finished version up for posterity.

And even though I have Chrome on my computer and I switch back and forth between browsers sometimes (I'm going to be flamed by someone for not having an opinion on the browser war at all, aren't I...), right now I'm too lazy to access LJ from a browser that's not already keeping me logged in - and at the moment, I only have IE keeping me logged in. But if it ever becomes even more urgent that I need to actually edit or delete something instead of clarifying it with another post, I'll probably log in with Chrome to do that.

I thought you could just hit a delete button? I don't know if I've ever tried to delete a post though...

I could just hit a delete button, but you have to be able to get to the edit page to access the delete button - and there's a glitch now where you can't get to the edit page in IE.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
