To branch off of this: You can only edit/modify posts that you have made. If someone quotes you with an earlier version of your post, you cannot edit their post to reflect your new changes, and their post will not automatically update with the new changes.
Also, if you are trying to edit a thread you have made, you cannot edit the title that displays in the forum. You can change the title of the post if you edit it, but the thread title will stay the same as when you hit "Submit".
