How do i edit my own post?
#1
Hi,

Call me stupid, but i just can't find an edit button for a post.
I merely wanted to fix a typo...

Is editing not allowed?

Cheers,
Mark

It is an anti-spam measure. You need time and post count to meet a minimum requirement before other forum options are enabled for you. You certainly meet one, but not the other. A few more posts will see those extra permissions become available.

Yuck.
That "prevention" is a good way of scaring your users away too.
Instead of that drastic measure, a more moderate (say only 1 edit every x minutes or so) would be far more friendly.

Nah, don't agree. You have no idea the lengths we go to ensuring that spam is kept to a minimum on this forum, and so many still slips through. That particular restriction targets the "discrete spammers"
