           Summary: Can not edit posts in forum (after timeout)
           Product: Websites
           Version: trunk
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: forums.mageia.org
        AssignedTo: mageia-webteam at mageia.org
        ReportedBy: zen25000 at zen.co.uk

Description of problem:
After a certain (unknown) time delay it is not possible to edit posts.
This is not, in my experience, normal forum behaviour and is very unexpected
and undesirable.

There are many valid reasons why it may be necessary to edit a post.

1. It imparts incorrect information.
2. The information is out of date.
3. A minor edit would improve comprehension.

In all these cases it is not appropriate to add another post to offer a
correction as it may be several pages from the original post, also the
incorrect post would still be available to be read.

Forum posts are searched and used to solve problems in a similar way to the
Imagine the author not being able to edit a wiki entry.  

Surely it is preferable to be able to add a (suitably annotated) correction or
update to a post.

Can we please remove this timeout? 

Time has no relevance here.
