Two hours is the edit window for new posts.

This thread might be of some help to you as well.

I've always heard it was 2 hours but ever since I was new, I've always had 12 hours to edit before the feature expires for a post.

Is this the post you are referring to?
www.abovetopsecret.com...

If so, it was posted at 11:40 PM (CST). It is now 12:24 PM (CST). So it would have expired a little over an hour ago.

So I don't know if it's just a lucky glitch for my account or what not but I've always had 12 hours.

Do you need someone to edit in a link for you?

That has been my experience as well.

Well maybe I missed that memo, I was sure it was 2 hours. If not I apologize.

You may very well be right. Perhaps it is like the character limit in posts. Once a new poster reaches a certain threshold, the character limit increases. So I'm wondering if 2 hours is perhaps correct for newer members then it extends up to 12 hours after reaching a post count threshold.

The first I ever noticed, it was 12 hours for me. But I also jumped right in when first joining the site and posted a lot.

So who knows! LOL! Maybe both answers are correct in that it's 2 hours for new members and 12 hours once a certain post count is reached. That would make sense considering both 2 hours and 12 hours have been given as the time limit.

Sure no problem. I don't have editing powers in that forum so let me get someone to help you with that.
