"Edit post" feature missing?

Post by FAP »

It appears I'm missing the ability to edit a post or topic.
I can still quote and report a post, but can't edit any of my own posts.
Is anyone else experiencing this or is it just me?

I'm just going to test that theory

Edit

I have the edit button available and I can indeed edit

Yep, now it's gone on desktop AND mobile. Happens on both Chrome and Safari. I even tried logging out, quitting my browser, then going back in and still no dice. WTF?

And now it's back again: double WTF?

Edit (yes, the irony isn't lost on me): there's a particular post I want to edit that consistently does not have the edit feature. Perhaps this has something to do with the age of the topic? In other words, do I lose the ability to edit a post if it's been x-days/months/years since posting it?

xdugef, your table is waiting.

Edit 2: Just confirmed this happened with other older posts, too (not just the one particular post I mentioned above).

You have a limited amount of time to edit your post after posting it.
