What's the deal with the Edit Post tool? It's available for about 5 minutes after the intitial post is submitted but then it's not there afterwards.

Is this a bug or on purpose?

Purpose, you only have 5 minutes to edit a post.

Now why would that be the case?

Without an unlimited Edit function it just means threads could get bogged down with posts because a new post has to be added to correct a previous post. It's just clutter, imo.

Well, let's face it the place is generally run with all the charm and expediency of a nazi prisoner of war camp.
Take the mudbox forum for example. A very relaxed place, and all the better for it, they even have votes to ask the users if they want to change a feature.
Here you are welcomed with this notice, crookedly nailed to the wall:

No one's forcing you to post here. If you don't like it, there are lots of other forums.
