    Why the 10 minute edit rule on posts? That's something new, right? Can we go back the unlimited edit?

    I believe on the old software you could edit for a couple of days, but not further. Will look into the edit time and see if I can find a way to change it.

    If it helps to pinpoint the trouble - we had edit and delete and then we got rainbows. Same time frame.

    Can't seem to find a control for that one tweak. Sorry, I knew vBulletin pretty well, but this software is........well, new. I'll flag the post and see if someone smarter than me can figure it out.

    Basically it prevents people from going back and changing their posts. Yes if they do, it will tell us, but no one will know what it was originally.

    Either way it's not huge. 30 minutes should be enough time to edit any typos or minor corrections.
