this is a 'feature'
edit disappears after x number of hours/days etc.

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.

It's not a security hole in the forum is it ?.

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.
