Tinman, Try four weeks, months, or years ago....

Point for me is that we shouldn't have to ask permission or request to edit our content. Huge let down and rather underhanded in my opinion. As woodland.telegraph said, edit function should be unlimited.

I believe it should be unlimited as well. Just pointing out what it currently seems to be. I can edit posts from 4 days ago but not 12 days ago.

if you're not hiking you should be skiing

Did the Powers that Be eliminate the ability to edit historical posts out of a fear that long-time users, disillusioned with what the site has become, would go back to their old trip reports and remove them (so they couldn't be monetized, or other reasons)?

We wouldn't have changed the edit window on a whim guys. Odds are that it's what Niall said, a setting was reset to default by mistake.

Right now, it's been adjusted to allow for 7 day editing. Once we clean this up, we'll let you know

Everything is cleared up once more and full editing has been restored.

Just testing attachments as well as answering.

Historically the site has never had unlimited editing. The way VB works editing can throw the sync of the site off if done to often or if the threads are not run through a rebuild to ensure the changes are properly synced to the DB. That is why asking an admin works, we go into the back end and rebuild threads.

OK now to test an attachment.
