    Am I the only one whose edit button has dissapeared? Not sure where to post this, not sure if it's just something weird on my computer or what.

    Thanks.

    EDIT: Odd, I can edit this one... maybe I'm going crazy. Please delete this.

    Actually I can edit this one but not my older posts, I'm trying to fix a few typos in my mock draft and there's no edit button. Is there a time limit or something?

    The ability to edit goes away after a while.

    I'd estimate within half an hour you lose the edit option after a post.

    30 mins to an hour would be a good estimate. Not sure the exact amount. Forgot what Reality told me a long time ago.

    You can edit posts for up to an hour after you post them. Once that time limit has been met they can no longer be edited.

    Is there a good reason for that? Why can't posts be edited on a longer-term basis?

    The software is set up to have a time limit. We can set the time limit. That's the one we chose.

    During mock drafts run by the site we set it to like 3 hours.

    60 minutes just seems to be a good default. It's very rare that you'd need to edit something beyond that.

    Maybe you should try to edit this thread and title into something Cowboy-related.

    I'm pretty sure they are leaving it on here to edcuate the rest of those that didn't know about the time limit. Don't worry, I'm sure it's bringing your whole CowboyZone experience down, but it'll be gone soon enough.

    Maybe if you had read the 1st post, you'd see I already asked for the thread to be deleted.

    In the future, please seek questions to your difficult forum questions in the "Support Zone".

    Your cooperation is much appreciated!

    Thank you, Hostile, for your timely, friendly and informative response! I appreciate it, and I'm sure everyone else with such questions do as well. TheCount had a very good question, even if it was in the wrong forum. I'm looking at you, Hole.

    You forgot to say "You're handsome Hostile! I always laugh at your jokes! And you make a mean steak on the grill! For he's a jolly good fellow!"



    You're looking at me?

    And?

    Very interesting. I didn't know there was a time frame on edits as well. Makes sense but I didn't realize that.
