I looked at a post of mine to edit it and found that the 'edit' button has disappeared.
A glitch? or an update?
It isn't just on my computer but on a Kindle Fire too.
Anyone else with the same problem?
Edit:- does it time out - I have just been able to edit this post but not the one from earlier today. Frustrating.

(Edit - issue resolved thank you @ivar] I have just edited my photos into the post from this morning which raised the problem)

Too many and too often!
Same for me (on a Windows 10 laptop and Google Chrome at the moment). I can edit a post from this morning but not yesterday's.

Weird. I'm on Windows 10 and Firefox and can edit my post from 5 mins ago but not one in the same thread from yesterday.

As far as I know there is now a 60 min. deadline on deleting/editing and this came about because some members who had become disgruntled had started to delete posts thus making some of the threads completely unreadable/nonsensical and I think 60 mins is the max setting, after that you can contact a mod for edit or delete. @ivar can clarify this for you when he see's this post.

Yes, I think you can only edit for a short time after posting

Personally I think that is short-sighted. I frequently need to edit earlier posts, even weeks later for spelling, grammar, factual errors, or just that something changed my mind about an issue or earlier statement.

I am neither omniscient nor a perfect grammarian. Have YOU tried to compose something while typing with one finger on a smartphone? Does autocorrect ALWAYS get what you meant correct? Neither does it work that way for me.

I always strive to provide accurate, useful and concise input, in all my forum posts. The edit capability helps me avoid misinformation and misunderstanding. I do try to read my posts before I hit the “post reply” button. But, I confess to being both human, and in my mid-60s...😉

Please return my edit capability. If it needs to be limited, perhaps do so for more junior forum members... Just a thought.

That would be me. Sometimes it's the brain fog of my MCS, and sometimes it's just the many fires in my Leo chart, and sometimes I wish I had a retract button. lol!
