There's quite a lot of customisation available, for instance you can hide Topics that are not of any interest to you, also sort them by name, category or posting date.
You can also use the search bar if there is something specific you are looking for.
I know I am extremely sleep deprived, I may also be extremely dense, but how do I simply edit a post that I made?
If it is within 15 minutes of making the original post, you can click the thing at the top of the post which looks like a wheel. That will bring up four more icons including one which looks like a pencil.
If it is beyond 15 minutes, you may need to just post an amendment in a new post, or, in the event of some kind of deeply embarrassing drunk post, call a favor on one of the hosts to edit for you.

Just know that asking favors of the hosts is like asking the Godfather for a favor. Someday we'll call on you in return.
Ha, it's just typos and bad grammar. Nothing scandalous, unfortunately. I'll save my favors for a true Anthony Wiener moment.
