For you to give feedback to the Heartland moderators. Wish lists, fault reports, etc. You may get an answer, you may not. As in all things, it largely depends on how nicely you ask the people in charge... You're welcome.

i'm sure -as in i can actually remember when- it used to be possible to edit posts for some time after posting them. now it seems that this is only possible when the post is still the latest post in a given thread -ie when it's posssible to delete said post. can someone plese tell me why? (not that i've got anything to hide, not me guv'nor no...) :?:

thanks.

We stuck a time-limit on editing quite some time ago, as someone (I forget who now) had been making offensive comments and then editing their posts after the fact to cover their tracks.

I think you can edit for about 15 minutes after posting?

No other way to edit a post still? Just wanted to add the article date to this.

There's still a time limit on editing I'm afraid.
I've added the article date to the post for you though.
Cheers.
