Editing old posts after server move

    Just noticed - I am able to edit my 12 hours old posts. I though there is a half hour limit - is this a side effect of server move, or new policy?

    I wasn't aware of any new policy. I'd bet it's a side effect of the move, but we'll have to wait for the definitive answer from Greg.

    The post edit time limit has been 24h for a few months following the 30min backlash.

    I thought we'd set it to one hour? 24 hours leaves a lot of room for misuse: though, I'm sure this has been discussed somewhere that I must have missed.

    Good to know, I was sure it is still 30 minutes.

    I noticed this a while back. I thought it was due to the software upgrade.
