    Think you have to click edit on your very 1st post then go to advanced edit. Try that

    The edit buttons have a time constraint, not sure what it is, a couple of hours i think, after that no more editing.

    I think it was a few day coz i edited two days ago since my initial post last week.
    maybe we can only edit once...

    Alan is there a reason for this? or was it set like that by admins?

    We can not name individual pages (page 2, page 3 etc.), your thread title is the same for all pages on your thread, if your thread is 40 pages long, the title will always be the same.

    The time limit for editing thread titles is 60 minutes.

    The time limit for editing of posts is 5 days.

    It has been set like that as on other boards because sooner or later somebody gets the hell in and decides to blank out all his posts over the last couple of years and suddenly you have threads all over the place that dont make any sense, just one of those things.
