    No "edit" option on my posts....

    Hi everyone,
    I need to edit my buy/sell post and the "edit" button is gone. I believe this was caused because I clear my cookies and history upon closing my browser.

    Is there a way to get the edit button back - other than quoting the post?

    Thanks,
    Michie

    I noticed that the 'edit;'option is available as long as yours is the only or last post in a thread. I don't like that either.

    I believe the ability to edit your own posts is time-limited, not determined by position in the post sequence - perhaps one of the moderators can clarify.

    You're right Oren - the EDIT button goes away after roughly thirty minutes.

    Got the answer, but not the explanation or logic as to why.

    at 1st i did not like that i could not edit my posts....now i think it is better. keeps everyone in line as they can not get all hot headed and then delete/edit later. makes you think about what and how you say things.

    I, for one, would love the option to edit more at a later date. I vote for allowing the person who made the post to be able to edit at any time, i.e., removing any time limitation on editing whatsoever. Not only would people be able to remove things that they later regretted posting, corrections and additions could be made to clarify information in the original post that may have been confusing, misleading or simply wrong.

    (See, here I am adding something...) I have often wanted to go back and correct a spelling mistake or clarify a point in my posts and have been unable to do so after the half-hour time limit. I think my corrections would have improved my contribution and streamlined the threads. The ability to edit at any time, I believe, would make the archived threads much more useful to people reading after the fact for this very reason

    Best
