    Hi,

    At one time I thought there was a time limit on how long a post remained open in order to edit it.

    Lately I have noticed that I can still edit my post after a few days, and I just noticed that on one post I did in 2015 it still lets me edit it.
    query on smoothing broaches...

    David,
    The time limit is 1 hour, after that the edit button is not visible. We can't see if it is in your post as you can only see it. Have an Admin look at your permissions and see if something is wrong.

    I think we may be getting overdue for an upgrade.

    I have found several members who do have this ability, which only administrators have by design fo facilitate their housekeeping work.

    But most members do not have the ability and I have not discovered a setting which would cause the difference. I will continue looking.

    Thanks Tom. Perhaps I am being promoted to administrator?

    Well... It is only your own posts you can edit, so if you refrain from editing your posts from 5 years ago nobody will notice. When you edit an old post, It does not change its age, so it is still buried in the deep dark past. :)
