    Default Post editing

    I see I "may edit posts". I assume this refers to old posts? If so how do I edit them, and can I remove my old posts as well?

    You can only edit posts made within the last 20 minutes. You should see an edit button on posts you have recently made, but that option disappears after a short time. There are two reasons for that: With unlimited editing, some folks use that feature to make inflammatory posts before going back to edit them after the intended reaction is acheived. Additionally, allowing deletion of posts makes older threads very difficult to read. Our archives are searched very frequently, so allowing posts to simply disappear greatly impacts the value of thread searches.

    If there is a post that needs to be edited, you can always send me a PM and I can take care of it for you.

    I think I have mastered the self edit thing now. Thanks for the tip about posting inflammatory remarks and then delete them. I think I can have a lot of fun with that one.LOL

    I'll give an example.
