    Hey guys, I feel a little silly asking...but does anyone know how to edit the first post in thread? I've been trying to change my first post in my stealthpromo thread so I can update my design offerings and pitch, but there's no edit button :(

    Any help with this would be fantastic, I've searched the board to no avail. Thanks!

    You can only edit a post for the first few hours, after that it becomes permanent. Once the edit button goes away only mods or admins can edit a post. The reason for that is mostly to keep people from making a post and then after a bunch of replies going back and changing the original post to make it seem like you had said something different.
