    Is there a time limit on editing posts?

    I ask because a post with photos of one of my guitars clearly shows the serial number and a friend suggested that I delete that particular photo for security reasons; but now when I go back the option to edit that post has disappeared. More recent posts still allow me to edit.

    Help!

    There is a time limit. I think it is around a week. You may have to pm an admin or mod and ask them to either edit it for you, or I'm sure there is some way that they can reactivate the edit button for that particular post.

    I have edited posts even after a few days, so I don't know what's happen. Maybe something to do with how long you have been a member or something like that??? Now you have me perplexed too!
    Maybe a friendly mod will clarify this for us plebs... :naughty:

    I believe it is set to 48 hours. After that, you can contact me or a moderator to do the editing for you. :yesway:

    I posted something today and as soon as I went to correct a flaw, the edit button was gone.
