    Unfortunately the edit function appears now to be set so that it's active for only a certain period of time and then you can't edit after that. I haven't been able to figure out the length of time yet.

    I'd prefer us to go back to having an editing option.

    Err, it seems to be turned off completely. When did that happen?

    Ok, admin, how about telling us what is going on, and why?

    I just posted 'bumber' instead of 'number' in a Very Serious Post. Can we please have editing turned back on? ;-)

    Yes, we'll make this happen. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

    Craig checked and the edit function is active, but only for 20 minutes.

    What would you suggest for an adequate time window to edit? Forever?

    I think forever is ok as long as it doesn't get abused. It's not been a problem in the past has it?
