Editing your own posts

Is it my imagination or could you not edit a post that you authored? Would like to see that if possible. I think it's better to clean up a mistake in the original post than follow it up with a correction later. If I'm missing the icon, could you let me know where it is?

Gene - there is a time limit on editing your own posts. It is currently set to 4 days. We figure that is plenty of time to get it right. The reasoning behind not allowing editing forever is that someone could back months or even years later and completely change the meaning and flow of a thread.

If you need to have a post editied and a follow-on post won't suffice, most any moderator will do it for you.

Thanks, that's the problem. I posted something years ago, that I wanted to rephrase (change lat/lon to city) but it's no big deal. I see the edit button on this thread post. I also understand the rationale for the time limit. Makes sence.
