If you can, please also make it available for Dive Site listings. I was going to update a few of my Dive Site posts the other day but couldn't.

Sorry for the late reply.

Yes, we did change the feature to put a reasonable time limit on edits for typos and such (as a result of a member going back and mass-editing their past posts, many of which were controversial, which is not what the feature was intended for).

We should probably make it different for ad listings, for exactly your use case. I will look into this. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

It's ok, adding a reply to my for sale will change price and bump :)

Hey Koos

Yeah, it's relatively new. Posts can only be edited for 15 minutes after submitting. If you need an edit to a post, contact a moderator.

ahh.. That might be.

Interesting, that must be a new "feature".. It used to be editable for forever. Or maybe I just don't edit posts enough :)

I vaguely remember something about it only being active for 5 or 15 min or something like that.

I posted a for sale classifieds and wanted to go edit so i can add the new price..

But seems the "Edit" button has been disabled? :nutty:
