Basically, once a post has been responded to, you are no longer allowed to edit the post. This is needed to maintain the integrity of the topic.

In addition to this, once you earned enough cows (see http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/RanchCows), this rule is also somewhat relaxed.

Hope this helps,
Henry

But what you can do is to post a reply explaining the new situation.

BTW, the statements regarding editing mentioned in this topic, are not longer true. Editing a post (or the conditions of) is currently being changed at the moment... and may change again in the future. Please ignore this topic...
