Title
HELP! Please add a context-sensitive "do stuff" link leading to everything _I_ can do with every posting.

Short, concise description of the idea
I just posted to a community (from the web UI on "full mode), and got discouraged when I couldn't find the link to correct my posting. I could go back to the FAQ and find out, but I've done that enough today....

Full description of the idea
A tiny [actions] or [do stuff] link on EVERY post viewed by a logged-in user (or better yet all users) that brings them to a web page or additional window where they can doo EVERYTHING their permissions allow to/concerning that posting.

I.E.:

An ordered list of benefits

  • You never have to learn the UI byond the two basics at all, just learn how to set up an account, and browse journals, and all of you options will be presented in one place.
  • The [do stuff] control page could even have links to the FAQ, next to each verb-action widget.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Yet more traffic as glance-at-but-give-up dormant subscriber ratio is reduced as a percentage of new accounts.
  • Further incentive to hit web server when dektop clients may be a far lighter load for LJ.
  • ...???
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Ah... if only I knew the codebase well enough to fill in the above "An ordered list of problems/issues involved" field...
