Editing Posts

I seem to have lost the ability to edit my posts. The EDIT button seems to be missing in action.

After a certain amount of time you can no longer edit your posts. I think it's 20 minutes or something like that.

That's right you have 15-20 minutes to edit your post then the button disappears when your time is up. It the edit you wanted to do is a serious issue such as a misleading statement or an error in a recipe, a mod can fix it for you.

If you have a post that needs an edit after the edit window has passed, just contact a moderator and ask for an assist - we're happy to help.

Or, you can just let your original post be, so that other DC members can reply, "you're wrong! you're a clueless dolt!" Makes for a livelier discussion. Most of my editing impulses go that way.

Thanks for asking the question .40, I was wondering about it too.

(Shoot, I just went and did my first edit! Yay! When I realized that I mis-wrote the caliber number.)

If you admit a mistake we still get to call you a clueless dolt!
