    I want to modify one of my posts from a couple days ago but when I go to the post the "modify post" button is not there. I can still modify recent posts though.

    How long do you have to modify a post before the button goes away?

    You have one hour to modify a post or one day to delete it. There is a valid reason why this was put in place. When the forum was first created some members were deleting or modifying there old posts. The results were fairly troublesome. Some threads were destroyed because they became incomprehensible or the recorded history was tampered with.

    If you need a change to a thread just contact a moderator. Requests are usually honored. Normal changes are:

    Add SOLD to a classified post

    Minor changes to a post's content that fix a mistake in the content

    Fix image issues

    Thanks Tom, that makes sense.

    Do you think you could take the price off the end of my "1987 Evinrude 8hp" thread? I thought I could just edit the title when I adjusted the price.
