I couldnt find an option to Edit a private message.
Is there any option available for this?

I do not believe the forum offers the ability to edit PMs that have already been sent. Much like email, when they have been sent, they are gone. That may be a nice feature to add to the site functionality in my humble opinion.

Typically, I've always just re-sent another message containing any relevant edits or changes and let the user know what they were. I figure that editing isn't a terribly important function when you are just sending messages to a single user, unlike threads
which would be seen by many others besides just the original poster.
I could see it having some merit, but I think that PMs are an informal enough form of communication that might not need editing, or at least as a high priority.

As everyone stated, we don't offer the ability to edit private messages and there is no plan to introduce the feature. This is to cover the cases where someone might be harrassed over PM and discussions devolve into a "he said - she said" argument. We have
the complete thread on file and can reference everything originally written.
