Edit own posts?

Enso Sep 26, 2007 04:47 PM

Aren't I supposed to be able to do this? Even if it is the first post?

I am logged in, but not seeing any edit link. I checked several other posts of mine as well. Also, you know how when you go back to a thread previously read and all the read posts are collapsed? That's not happening any more either.

Have there been some changes to the board?

Thanks for any light you can shed on this.

    There's a two hour limit on editing. Is the post older than that?

      Really? Why is that?

      Some of them are older than that.

        Actually, that's not true about the 2-hr limit. For my post of 9/26, 6:22 pm I saw the edit link immediately.


        PS: And I edited this post just a few seconds after posting it. I thought it might be that the 1st post of a thread can't be edited but that's not true either; I can see an edit link for my initial post here.

        Hmm... gremlins in the 'net? ;-)

          You should see the edit link immediately--after 2 hours it should go away again.

            Ah. That's even worse than the other way 'round. Oh, well.
