Hi aBenjamin, did you see my reply when you asked this question in the other thread?

Thanks for the reply, sorry I missed your other post. Will this be changing ever? I have a thread I'd like to update and keep up to date... doesn't seem to be a way to do that.

You only have a certain amount of time to edit your posts..I believe it is one hour.

Dcookie is correct.

 

In order to maintain the consistent flow of conversation within threads, there is a 60 minute window during which members can edit their posts.  This should be sufficient time to correct grammatical or spelling errors and also insert additional content if needed.

 

With a longer editing time, there is the potential that messages could be altered to such a degree that the topic flow within the thread would no longer make sense.

 

If you have a special need, please feel free to contact any moderator via PM.

 

I hope that answers your question!
