I recently made a change to the way the post editing feature behaves. In the past, members have been able to edit posts indefinitely. Unfortunately, this privilege has been abused and I was forced to limit use of the "Edit" feature to within
15 minutes one hour of when a post is first made. This will allow you to fix any obvious problems with a post (such as spelling mistakes), but after those 15 minutes that one hour are is up, you will no longer be able to edit your posts. I have made a few exceptions, such as with the Marketplace, Wanted, and the various Programming-related forums. In these forums, you can still edit your posts indefinitely.
Outside of that, I do understand that there are some threads where it's advantageous for the topic starter to maintain the first post (or possibly others) in a thread. If you need the ability to edit a specific post, please post here which posts you need to be able to edit and why, and I can selectively grant you access to edit those posts.
Edit: Changed edit time from 15 minutes to one hour.
