Topic title says it all. Am I missing something here? I was able to edit a post a few days ago, but now the button isn't there anymore.

Nope, it's still there. I just tried it with a test account. The button might go away after the editing period expires.

Odd, it appears on some of my posts, but not others, particularly one in the Category 23 thread where I quoted a response above. Oh well, not that important. Sorry for the bother.

Then what I said is probably the case. It disappears when you can no longer edit a post.

Yeah, I remember kroyster put it on a timer to prevent people from "flame baiting" and then going back and changing their posts so they could innocently say, Who? Me? I'm not sure how long it's set for, but only a few hours at most. After that, you're out of luck (unless it's a huge mistake, then you'll have to bribe a moderator to go in and correct it for you (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/wink.gif) ).

I think it's 30 minutes or somewhere thereabouts.

Not as heinous as it sounds. You just set up a Paypal account to deposit a preset amount of money into my account every time you click the "Report" button.
