Can't Edit Posts in Classifieds?

Thread title says it all. I can't edit my posts or update the OP. Well, actually I can for a little while but then the edit button disappears. Did something change?

Here is the AD in question. I can edit today's post, but I cannot edit yesterday's or the OP...



I may be an idiot, but I should be able to edit any post I've made regardless of date right?

I can't even edit my post in this thread. It seems that you lose the editing option after a while.

How would that be a good idea, locking out posts would be a pain in the butt

You must see my point...and it's the only reason to even consider keeping it. I think its a stupid idea to lock out posts for sure. Dont get me wrong....but....anyone can take away any of their contributions to the site...and lose alot of useful info. You see my point right?

Yeah makes sense but it wouldn't be feasible. I think it would make sense for things like stickys though and be a good idea. Maybe theres a way to do that?
