I don't see an edit button on your posts.
If it is available to you why can't you go in and edit then?

The mods instituted a timer on the edit feature. Once that time is expired, you can no longer edit.

As an ex-forum moderator myself, this new policy puzzles me. Who cares what gets edited?

The edit option is only available for 4 hours after the post is made. After that, only a Moderator can edit a post.

And it was IT Dept. that changed the edit option...Moderators had nothing to do with it.

Yes, but you know mods always catch all the heat.
It really should go away. It's a bad policy.

If it's an easy fix, ask a Moderator to help.

Yeah...good or bad, we hear it. I was told it used to be set at 4 hours but was reset to no time limit. I agree with you, no time limit would be easier. Oh well...
