    Even Jr can't do it , you need to contact a mod for that ... enabling this feature for everyone will cause a lot of troubles ......

    On the old forum you had 24 hrs to edit a post, on the new one this limit was lowered to 120 seconds, Apricot just made a post the other day, which contains this info. The time limit is the same for all member levels. After that time passed by, only mods can edit posts.

    If a user edit his/her post, there's always a visible "Last edited: timestamp" note on the post at the bottom right handside. The post you're referring to was made on the old forum and does contain a note like this. The limit to edit a post was 24 hrs on the old forum as i mentioned it above, the OP edited his post inside that limit as you can see it from the timestamp at the bottom.

    That's not possible either on the new forum, on the old forum Jr. VIPs and up could do it. Only mods can close threads now.
