Bug Edit option sometimes disappears

    I've noticed recently that I randomly loose the ability to edit some of my posts. It is not consistent which posts will loose the edit, I have some posts that are quite old that I can still edit and some from just yesterday that are now un-editable.

    Any ideas as to why or how I could fix this?

    All posts should become un-editable after some time, not sure what the current limit is. Edit: 700 minutes.

    If there are old posts that you still can edit, that's obviously something wrong.

    I ran into this problem last week, on some posts that were just a few minutes old, very much under the 700 minute limit. This happened to me in one of the math homework forums, but it did not occur in a different section (Computer/Programming forum, not the one in the homework section).

    A little while later, things were back to normal, and I was able to edit previous posts of mine that were under the 700 minute limit.

    I don't have any more details, so this information might not be very helpful. If I run into this problem again, I'll try to provide more details.
