Modify Old Posts

    Is there anything blocking the editing of old forum posts? I am trying to edit one of my posts from July and I can't see the "Modify" option in those posts…

    Post editing is only available for a limited time, 14 days perhaps. I'm uncertain.
    It used to be much longer which was handy for someone like me who makes loads of typos, I would correct them whenever I read back through a thread. The downside is that by editing older posts you are changing the historical record. It's possible to make sn otherwise useful thread completely unreadable by removing some piece of key information.
