    Yes. The edit link is under your post to the left (see the red box in the pic below).

    Its not there for me, im on a mobile device (Android) if that makes a difference?

    *edit* ok weird I can obviously edit this post. Im wondering if it has anything to do with likes? It seems I cant edit my posts that have likes? I believe the old site if you edited your post you lost all the likes...maybe the new site you just cant edit at all after its been liked?
    *edit again* Nope I cant edit my post from yesterday either...maybe its just a shorter edit time window?

    ^ In the old site (and I am assuming it's the same with this one), you couldn't edit your posts after 24 hours. (Or was it 48? I can't remember exactly, but I'm leaning towards 24.)

    Also, in the old site, you didn't lose likes for editing a post. If you refreshed the page after editing, you'd see the likes there once again. I don't think anything would happen to a liked post on the new site either, but can't confirm as I haven't done it.

    Another thing I've noticed is that people aren't using the Like button as much as before, including myself. I just kinda forget it's there, since it's quite small now.

    The edit window must just be alot shorter now (much shorter than 24 hours) because I cant edit my earlier post in this thread anymore.

    *edit* but I can edit this one

    Ah, you're right. I lost the edit button on my previous post here, roughly 3 hours ago. Granted, there was a date change since 3 hours ago, (it is now 01:40 AM where I am) so it could be that, too.

    But yeah, it'd be nice to know what the window is.

    I second this. I can't find it.

    The inability to edit posts is really weird. Is that intentional?

    You can still edit posts, as always the function disappears after a period of time; the button is underneath the post to the left.

    Yeah, that's what I mean. Why does it just disappear? That is like if the toilet paper roll retracted into the wall if I didn't use it in time.

    It's supposed to disappear after 2 - 3 days.

    For me it disappears instantly. That isn't right.

    EDIT: My edit is still here now? :Scratch:

    Hmm, I'll test a theory with this post then. I wonder if its related to once you leave a thread that the edit disappears? I don't think mines ever gone away that quick.

    Edit: 25 mins and it still works, so it may be a case by case problem. I'll check back every so often over the next day and see if it still lets me

    IIRC the edit timer was first brought in by Chris when he owned the site. I believe a certain member started to delete every post he had ever made and it caused issues. One of the reasons I originally became a Mod was so I could have ongoing editing power in the Guitar Of The Month threads.

    Is the iTrader system gone for good? Or is it just hidden and/or not ported over yet?
