Is it because I'm too new to the boards? I read the help and can't find the edit button anywhere on my prev posts.

I see it now, comprehension is dawning...

thanks for the reply

There's a time window during which you can edit your post, not sure how long it is, but maybe 30 minutes?

It's to keep people from doing the old Bait-and-Switch, where they post something, wait for a bunch of people to react, and then change their original post and act all innocent. It's usually done just to provoke people. We never really had a lot of trouble with it here, except occasionally in Public House, but last time the software was upgraded, we decided to make sure it didn't become a problem.

I'm also not sure how long the window is open for editing, but 30 min sounds about right.

Yup, I'm pretty sure it is 30 minutes. I wish we could edit the titles too during that 30 minutes - it would help us clean up some embarrassing and/or poorly written titles/typos.

Yeah, I wish you guys could fix your title typos too! (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/tongue.gif) Let's start bugging kroyster and see if we can get that implemented. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/devil.gif)
