Why can't I edit my post?


I want to edit this post but can't:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ml#post4794225

The "Edit" button does not appear between the "Report" and "Quote" buttons, even though this is a post that I've made and the thread has not been locked. I want to update the URLs in the posts.

I am aware that users have requested that posts be made un-editable after a certain amount of time. I am also aware of two recent incidents where the ability to edit old posts has been abused. Is that the explanation?

The current "Edit limit" seems to be two weeks.

I can edit my posts dated 17 Nov 2012.
But not posts dated 16 Nov 2012.


You could try asking a mod to take care of the edit.
