    Default Edit button ...where did it go?

    I read through Mr. Maim's post below about having the same issue but there's no info about why the edit button is missing or if it can be repaired.
    I have WTS listing that I would like to edit but I can't. Any assistance would be most helpful.

    The link for the listing is here. I need to edit the first one.

    Here's what I'm seeing at the bottom of my WTS listing.

    My post yesterday to bump the listing shows an edit button?

    I hope they didn't update their software to only allow edits for a certain amount of time. There are other sites that do this. You have to post again to revise your original text or pictures and a lot of it gets passed over because not everyone will scroll through the whole thread to get all of the info.

    Hmm, I just went back a month and a half and the edit option was there.

    They have implemented the time limited editing of posts. My $.02 is it causes more headaches than it solves. I think @admin should consider allowing historical edits. We would be only one change in photo hosting policies to lock out virtually every photo in every sticky on the forum.

    @HKaltwasser , @Nzfly ...thanks for the replies, looks like this might be the case.
    There are a few long running listing on here, I know tdog's thread has been up for quite some time. Not being able to update items, quantities or prices in the OP will be a headache for sure.
    @admin ...what's the follow up to this, start a new thread, add updates to the OP in later post that like HKaltwasser mentions ...and the possibility of them not being seen?
    I have a lot of time as I'm sure others do putting some of these listings together.

    Does this mean we cannot lock our own sales threads any longer? We were asked to do this when an item sold. I don't have an active sale thread going, haven't in some time so I'm not sure I can even look.

    EDIT: Never mind, I answered my own question. Admin tools still has "lock thread" feature.

    I don't "run" my guns or "run" anything on them. Likewise, none of my guns are "platforms". I hold them up, not the other way around.
