    Hello BHW,

    I am not a noobie or sth like that, but I can't seem to edit one of my posts at the Journey Section. Supposedly the edit button was near the "Reply with Quote" button, but I can't seem to find the edit button :(

    Also, is there a way for me to change one of my thread's name? Anyway to edit it? If this editing feature is in the edit button that I can't seem to find, then any response will be welcomed.

    Regards BHW

    [Please no trolls or flamers of any kind, its just a damn question...]

    The "edit" button is there for a certain time only (<24h). After that you can not edit your post.
    I am pretty sure the same goes with editing thread's title.

    You can edit a thread/post as many times as you want ( I have yet to meet a limitation).
    I believe they just need to be within ~24 hours of each other.

    So for example:
    You create a thread, you have 24 hours to edit it. Afterwards, the button goes away.

    This is good to know. Only 24 hours to edit a post here on BHW.

    I always thought that you have unlimited power to edit your own post.

    But I guess every forum is different. Now I have to be careful of what I put down on a post.

    Actually, thanks for a great question. One can't just assume anything!!
