I cannot edit my post

  1. May 9, 2009 #1
    I want to edit one of my posts on the first page of a multi-page thread but the edit button is not there. Is there any way I can do this? I don't want to change anything, I just want to add some text explaining why my post is incorrect.

    You can only edit up to 24 hours after you post. If you want anything edited after that report the post in question to the mentors with the edits you want to take place.

    Ok thanks, guess that explains why I was able to go back to edit posts which had lasted over a few hours.
