    Went to edit a typo in a thread and noticed the edit feature was gone--is there now a time limit, if so how much time do we have?

    Yeah I saw that on some of my older posts but what the time limit is idk. I would rather have the edit there but have it automatically state it was edited and at what time.

    Just my 2 credits.

    what is going on?

    I have old thread titles I would like to update/edit.

    bump for moderator response.

    Old thread no longer letting me edit. Mostly I'd like to edit my running thread to provide updates >> for example MRP only has 4 slots left instead of 5, but the thread is so long that could easily get missed.

    From what I've seen, it seems like it is set at about two months. My posts that say 2 MONTHS AGO are not editable, but the 1 MONTH AGO ones are.

    Would be a good thing if the FAQ was updated with the new edit rules.

    It's currently set around 70 days, if I'm not mistaking. This will be changed in the new site, where new users are also no longer able to 'necromance' old threads.

    I want new users to have somewhere around a week editing ability and established members a limit of 6 months or something along those lines. Then there's the "special" members who maintain very helpful or cool topics, like the Pinball Quiz topic by Soren or the guides by Vid. These need constant updating and therefore these Pinsiders get unlimited editing rights (the latter has already been implemented).
