The edit window on posts is 30 minutes. This should be ample time to fix typos and add additional thoughts.

We've also had entire posts removed which disrupts thread continuity and is sort of insultinging to those who took the time to respond.
Members rarely go back into a thread and reread old content looking for changes so if you edit a post to add a thought days after you made the post, most will never see the change.
Mods are willing to assist with any needed edits and we have this limit in place to keep the board running smoothly.
Thanks for understanding.
