    Thanks for fast reply.

    But that's stupid .... my typo's do not go away..
    That means I have to put another post to put the correct info in, It's the only forum I know that is like that.. odd. very odd.

    Im not sure if its the correct way to do it but if i need a post edited i "report' the post and ask a mod to edit it for me.

    While this makes extra work for the mods, and im not entirely sure of the reasoning behind it but im sure @ZeroHour has his reasons.

    I guess it's mainly done to help with the integrity of posts.

    Its about the integrity of the information being posted. Editing a post after a certain amount of time makes no sense, as everyone will have read it already, mistakes and all. Changing it is like revising history.

    First posts have a very limited window as if you delete it, it takes the whole thread with it which has led to huge threads vanishing. This is why the lockdown exists.
