I am trying to edit a post I made on Monday at 8:00am and I don't see an edit button. The thread is not locked as I can click the quote button and it lets me reply. Is there a time limit for editing Java Forum posts?

Yes, we don't allow editing posts after a certain reasonable amount of time.

The posts can still be edited. It just needs to be done by a moderator. And of course, there has to be a viable reason for the changes.

For important changes, just send a purple message to the forum moderator with the details.

Purple moosage. You won't find anything called "private message" in the forum header.

Just out of curiosity, how did a moose become a theme on a ranch? Were the founders Canadians? Alaskans?
