Post Edit message
I wanted to edit a message I had posted a few days ago and discovered there is not edit button on the message. I am logged in and supposedly have permission to edit my messages but no actual mechanism by which to do so.

My understanding is that the Edit function is only available for a few minutes after initial posting of the message.

Just long enough to recover from that oh no second realization after hitting the post button that your spelling was attrocious and your grammer even worse. :roll:

Thanks. I saw that but was surprised that it disappeared so soon. Especially when posting pictures, I'd like a few days in case I revise a picture, which I'm still doing for the Phobos Rendezvous pic.

RAH used to mutter "Damned editors!" too, until he got out of the juvenile contract with Scribners. ;)
