How do I edit one of my original posts, I want to update it rather than posting a whole new topic, is this possible?

As a regular Member, you can edit a post for 60 minutes after it's been submitted.  This allows you to fix any issues you may notice with the post right away.  Subscribers can edit posts for 30 days.  In the Marketplace and Programming forums, you can edit your posts indefinitely, since the flexibility of allowing editing of posts outweighs the potential abuse of the edit functionality.  
 
These restrictions were put into place to prevent misuse of the edit feature.  For instance, we've had users say something offensive or troll in a post, only to change it a short while later before a moderator sees it.  And there have been instances where people have edited away a great number of posts.

You can also apply for rights to edit a specific thread of yours.

I would contact a moderator, CPUWIZ, TPR, or jaybird3rd for anything immediate. They are pretty active these days.

 

EDIT: They didn't give me editing permission from that thread, I don't think they check that thread often.  So contacting the moderator is the best choice.
