I'm pretty sure the answer is no, but I'm interested to see if I'm wrong.

You can never edit somebody else's content, and I can't imagine why you'd want to. Their name would still be on it, so you would literally be putting words in someone else's mouth.

Note that as owner of a geeklist you do have the ability to delete geeklist items created by others.

You can also set up the list to restrict that from happening.

FWIW, there are platforms (most notably, StackOverflow) that allow users to edit other users' content. That power is only given to regular contributors (and quickly taken away if abused I'm sure), and it's easily visible who edited what when.

http://stackoverflow.com/help/privileges

Oh, and the purpose of the platform is entirely different. StackOverflow is supposed to give answers to programming problems, it's not a discussion platform like BGG.
