Cannot Edit My Posts
Not sure if this is the correct place .
I have lost the 'Edit' button on my posts, I have used three different machines with different browsers but still have NO edit button !.
Any idea's please.
Edit..... Testing,Testing ... Now it works on here but not on my other live post..odd... edit end
Edit 2 ..Is it time related edit button ?.
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.
