You can only edit a post up to 6 hours after you posted it. After this time period has expired the post is final and can not be changed.

Watcher, are you saying that you tried to change it 5 minutes after you posted the first time? Hmm....if so, that shouldn't happen. However, like HH sez, after 6 hrs, it is a part of history.

What browser are you using and do you accept cookies. Also, are you running some sort of "security" software like Norton Internet Security. Those can wreck havoc on stuff like these forums that run off of cookies.

If it's any consolation, I get exactly the same error- I can't edit messages, even immediately after posting.
yes I accept cookies, etc
