    FWIW, I don't think you are allowed to edit your posts until after you have made some number of posts. I think that is to prevent people from posting spam with illegal links, finding out that their links have been removed, and then trying to edit the post to put the links back in some other way that gets through the filter.

    But ask a moderator.

    hmmmm...

    Your post count is currently 1, so your above post is your first post and when you made it you didn't have any previous posts. So which post are you trying to edit? - assuming you don't have other usernames on this website .

    But in any case, the Edit button on my posts evaporates into cyberspace 24hrs after the post was made.

    But aren't you the one who says he never assumes anything? Heh.
    I see that as sarcastic “tongue-in-cheek” statement (at least that’s how I interpret it)

    if you're talking to me, can you post the thread and post number where you claim I made that statement? Otherwise I can just assume you are posting rubbish again like you did in blue52's factorisation thread
    And here is where it’s getting out of hand. I’m going to delete the tiresome discussion that arose out of that and rewind to post #4. Now let’s start over again without non-constructive provocations.

    I love sarcasm but it has to be on a basically amicable foundation. If people hate each other on principle it’s not going to come across with the right intention. So please, people, refrain from taking every little bit personally. Now, go shake hands and get along with each other.

    This thread has gotten out of hand.
    I have also removed posts that had no relevance to the question at hand. For the OP, you will see an Edit button at the bottom of your posts which you may use to edit. Some forums do not allow editing of posts at all. There is a time limitation for how long you may edit your post for (I thought it was 5 days, but it sounds that it may only be 1 day; WA could confirm the actual time). You may not edit an initial post to remove the contents of any thread that has been replied to, although if information should be removed such as website addresses or personal information, you may do so or request a moderator to perform it for you.
    This discussion is now closed.
