Yesterday, I logged out of my account online at logos.com

I logged back in and today I cannot edit any of my previous posts.

I made a post today and I can edit that post but I cannot edit any of the post I made before logging out of the online account.

Is there a way to get that ability back. I have a typo that I want to correct.

Trey,

There is a time limit on editing.

You have to live with yesterday's typo - I have to live with things I wrote which cannot be taken back :)

It's annoying not being able to edit posts.

Originally, we had an even shorter time limit with post editing to allow corrections of typos. That was to limit the editing so we wouldn't see several following posts referencing a statement that no longer existed in a post because that post was edited after the following posts were made.

After enough feedback that not everybody caught their typos in just a few minutes, the editing time was increased to 10 hours. Hopefully, plenty of time to edit typos and simple mistakes, and not long enough that a post gets edited days after it is created.

Well....

I can see the logic of it.  I guess I like to post adenda's to some posts that way all of the relevant information is in just one post.

But, I'll acquiesce that 10 hours is more than sufficient to fix a typo - and just make another post.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.
