The edit button is visible for 24 hours after posting a message. We have found that leaving it on indefinitely has enabled a number of members to go back and attempt to rewrite history. The length of time we will leave it enabled is under review but leaving it on indefinitly (as we have in the past) is out of the question.
The 24 hour current setting it typical of nearly all online forums.
