    Edit post timeout

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I have looked at the Help (FAQ) and wondered if anyone can clarify the 1 day timeout on editing a post? It appears to work on date rather than a 24hr period. The reason I ask is that I made a post last night and went to modify it this morning (less than 24hr later) and found it locked for modification due to the 1 day timeout.

    Invariably, most of us probably post in the evening and being in a different timezone I could quite easily post and 5min later be locked out of editing the post (not sure if it uses a single timezone for cutoff).

    I recently noticed the same behaviour.
    It is not giving you 24 hours from posting as stated.

    While youre in admin god mode Andy, I get

    "An Error Has Occurred!

    You are not allowed to access this section. "

    when I try to reply or quote/reply to anything but the most recent message in my inbox.

    If two messages come in at the same time you can only reply to the last one.
