IIRC there is a time limit on editing, maybe a couple of hours?

This is to stop spammers editing their old threads.

EDIT: Can you edit the post above?

Yes I can edit the above post. It shows the edit button, but after a few hours it goes away.

Yep, there's a limit on editing posts to stop spammers editing old posts and changing info - it's a bit of a pain but a necessary limitation with the way spammers try to sneak past the filters.

If there's something you want changing in the post and it's too late to edit, just PM me or post in here and I'll do it manually for you .

Thanks Ian. I just sent V_R a PM and asked him to delete two photos for me
