    Can't edit old posts??

    I just noticed that I can only edit a post right after I post it.

    Used to be that if I came back to a thread after a day or two and realized I spelled something wrong I could edit my posts. But I can no longer do that. Is that a glitch in the new Defensivecarry switchover or was this something that was changed on purpose??

    If you absolutely do need to edit something (or if you just really want to) then send a private mail to a moderator and we'll do the requested/desired edit for you.

    I imagine that you will get them mostly for 'items for sale' threads, when the OP wants to change the title to include 'SOLD' or edit the first post to remove sold items.
    It would be helpful if you could allow that sub-forum to continue with unlimited edits, not sure if that is possible though.

    Members are allowed to edit and close their own threads in one forum, "Member Buy, Sell and Trade", which was made late last summer. There is a sticky regarding that here.

    That change was made several months before we changed domains, Mike....
