    I'm only allowed 10 minutes to edit a post once it's submitted is absolutely stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I found out that once we post something there is only 10 minutes to edit it. I think this restriction is wrong and should be removed. For example, what if I wrote misinformation or/and misspelling and wanted to correct it? I shouldn't have to create a reply to my own post to "correct" these.
    I think it is fair to let us to edit our posts anytime we want, but displaying when the edition was made, highlighting the latest time of edition and if one wants, to click at it to check the history of timestamps of editions.

    For me it was 5 minutes only, but I agree, either remove the time limit or make it much longer e.g. an hour.

    @thezonk88 & @QuietBeat - Thank you for sharing this feedback with us with regard to the post editing window. 🙂 I sincerely apologise that we did not respond to your threads until now. I have merged them together as they discussed similar concerns with the post editing window. Do you both find the newer ten-minute window to not be long enough, and why? Do you feel that it should be increased again? If the latter, how long do you now think is needed for post editing? Thank you for any additional feedback you provide! 🙂

    @Killorio, @Father-Jack & @DoctorMcBatman - I merged the posts/threads you both posted in with this one, as it also concerns post editing. At the moment, the editing window stands at ten minutes. If you do not feel this is long enough, can you let me know why, and how long you feel would be appropriate? It is unlikely that the window will ever be made infinite, however there may be the possibility for it to be extended again, so any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks!

    Hello @vm4m9tz4pb - I have merged your thread into this one concerning increasing the post editing limit, as I feel this is really what your topic concerns.

    It is not a bug or error that the message you are seeing appears; at present, we have a limit on post editing which means that you can only do so within ten minutes of making your post. You can however delete your posts for much longer than that.

    If you feel that ten minutes is not long enough, please feel free to suggest an alternative timer length you would prefer and I can pass forward this feedback. Please be aware however that an indefinite limit is unlikely to be implemented. Thanks!

    Can you please clarify exactly what the issue you are experiencing is in that case, @vm4m9tz4pb? This message should only appear if you are attempting to edit a post that is no longer eligible to be edited.

    Please run through our browser troubleshooting, and if issues persist after that, submit images here on the forum exhibiting the issue. I'll then pass these details onto the forum development team for them to review and investigate. Thanks!

    Thanks for your reply @vm4m9tz4pb. Just to clarify again - if more than ten minutes have passed since you published your post on the forums, you won't be able to edit it then, or at any time after that. This limit means you can only edit your post within ten minutes of posting it, and once those ten minutes are up, that post can no longer be edited by yourself.

    This is not an issue, this is the current timer on editing permissions in place for users such as yourself. If you feel that ten minutes is not enough, and that you would like to be able to edit your posts for a longer period, then please let me know how long you feel would be appropriate. Again, an indefinite (i.e. infinite) timer is unlikely, but certainly we can discuss extending the length of the editing timer. Thanks!

    well, the discussion is old, but after TC2 joined the forum, many more people requested an indefinite time limit for edits. The reason is simple: If you are having postings that evolve over time, like a list of boosted parts or community suggestions, it is much more effective to update the initial posting instead of re-posting the rather long list over and over again.

    If this is not changed, the forum will loose lots of its value. You can see that some very popular threads already moved to other platforms which do not have those restrictions.

    Why do we only have up to 10 minutes to edit a post after it’s been posted? We should be able to edit it as many times as we want.
