I see no one from Staff is on. I apologize for that. Please post your correction in the thread and I will go in and edit your older post.

The issue with allowing edits beyond a day was that spammers were going back into threads that were a few weeks old adding links to inappropriate content. We weren't finding the inappropriate content until a member stumbled upon it and reported it. Threads appear for us to review when a new post is added not when an existing post is edited.

You summed up why we chose to go with unlimited editing the first day. It is fine 99% of the time. We look forward to the day when we will have enough staff to be able to extend the edit time to two days or longer.
