editing posts timeout period?

Post by Valen » Tue Mar 18, 2014 7:31 am

Does the ability to edit one's own post timeout after some period of days? I can't see any edit buttons on older posts I made (some days ago). As did someone else in this thread: https://forum.sparkfun.com/viewtopic.ph ... 09#p169509

However, I did see the button, and was able to use it, after making a post in that thread. So it is not (entirely) broken.

I would like to have the ability to edit my posts (from years gone by), to correct external links, or simply correct faulty information. So I think this timeout is a bad idea.

I just removed all time limits for editing / deleting posts from the forum, please let me know if you still run into problems with any of your posts.
