-> Just wanted to know Jeanne that how can I edit someone's post directly. Like you did for the OP here. Otherwise I have to copy it in eclipse, indent it and then re-paste it back.

Only moderators can directly edit a post.

OK. How does one qualify to become a moderator?

If the indentation is already present, but it is just missing the code tags, you can get the indentation, by using "quote" and then copy it. Regardless, you can't edit someone else's post, unless you are a moderator.
