    I am a new member with this site. The first day I submitted a post I noticed an edit icon at the bottom. Today after rereading my post I noticed some things that needed correction but couldn't find any edit tools anywhere? How can i edit or delete threads for any future needs?
    Thanks for your time.

    The window to edit posts is very small. I don't think we ever have got an answer on exactly how long but seems like its only couple of hours.

    I feel like I've seen it disappear after even minutes, when someone has quoted it...but I haven't done any testing to confirm what I saw...because I have also had instances where I *was* able to edit a post that was quoted...so...yeah.

    Exact same thing as me. It seems that I've seen it both ways in the past. They must have changed it at some point.

    No, unless you ask a moderator to do it for you. You do not have that ability on here, but they do.
