    Mayb I've lost my mind, I dunno.
    I've got some stuff in the 'for sale' section, and I'd like to go in and edit/modify prices. Last night, I apparently didnt have any trouble editing as I put some SPFs at the end of some sold items.
    But today, I cant figger out how to get into my own posts to edit.
    What am I doing wrong?

    There is a default time that you can edit posts. I believe it is 24 hours at this forum. After that, only a mod can edit your post. You can also just post a reply to your thread with the updated price.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I'm almost sure of it.

    Yup, you have 24 hours to edit an individual post and then it locks down. You can still close the thread yourself once the item is sold in that particular forum. Other edits can be made by contacting forum staff.

    I didn't know we could do that, I feel "nighe powerful" now!
    Seriously, it's pretty cool we can close the sale threads when items are sold.

    It's rarely remembered, actually. We also close them once we notice that the item has been sold.

    Actually, I was mistaken. It is actually only a 12 hour window to edit your post before it locks itself.

    Nope it's set at 1440 minutes, or 24 hours.

    Your seconds must be a little different out there in AZ, cuz I can edit posts that I made at 9 p.m. yesterday, but I can't edit posts that I made at 7 p.m., which is why I figured it was 12 hours instead of 24.

    Oh, well, doesn't really matter one way or the other. My posts are always perfect, so why should I need an edit button?

    We are a little different, but the server is in North Carolina so we'll have to blame it on them...

    You have a point there....
