Edit an old post

Right after I post something in a thread that I have started, it gives me the option to edit the post. I want to edit a post (in my own thread) from a couple of weeks ago. How can I do this? Thanks

Once the time limit is up only a Moderator or Admin can edit. Ask a Mod or Admin and if possible we will do it.

Thank you for the offer, but i was wondering what I would have to do to have the ability to do it myself. Most other forums lets you edit your own threads.

For example, if and when I make a Build thread I would like to go back and edit the first post to make it look like a timeline.

Yea, unfortunately we have a 30 minute timeline on editing. Sucks .. I know.
As mentioned ... We can open up the post for edit. Just PM any mod or admin.

Something I see done. You can post "save" under the first post .. 5-10 times. Then go back and edit in content later

Not really sure what you mean by the 5-10 times part. Even if I save the 2nd post I only have 30 minutes to edit, correct?

Sorry .. Yes. You're posting to save space for later. We still need to open the posts for editing.
