Unable to edit a post

Just tried to edit a post to remove a typo and there was no edit facility.

Is this as a result of the DDoS attack?

We have time limits set on editing, see:
http://www.trade2win.com/boards/t2w...-thread-delete-your-comments.html#post2371538

If it was within the time limit, let me know which post and I'll take a look.
This was like a few seconds after I posted it.

Don't know how to link to the specific post but it's post no 110 in this thread.

I just wanted to change the Hu to a Hi otherwise it looks like I'm talking Chinese.

We were hit by another heavy DDoS attack this morning, but whilst the attack continues, we've managed to defend ourselves from it. I'll post a separate thread explaining what happened.

I plan on removing a couple of features that are rarely used on the site:

- Friends List (this won't affect Contacts or tue Ignore List)
- Photo Albums

If you have any photos you wish to keep, please download them before Friday, 12 Sept.

If you mention the username of another member in a post, and remember to add a @ before their username (same way it works on twitter) they'll get an email alert about the post. For example including "@sharky" in a post would alert me to it.

Later this week, we'll roll out a way for you to optionally turn off the email alerts (when you're quoted or mentioned).

My email just got hit with a DDoS attack.

You sure it wasn't you all along testing this feature out?
Haha, don't worry we'll have a way to turn off the emails by end of this week.

Just a heads-up, I've re-enabled the friends list. Sonicscooter made a fair point that it was actually quite insightful to see who was friends with who on the site via the member profile page.

I've added back the old For Sale & Wanted forum and moved related threads into it.

I think every community should have an easy way to buy and sell stuff, and now there's a forum dedicated to it (again!)

One more change today, we've reinstated the albums after popular request. If you're wondering what I'm talking about, check out this link: http://www.trade2win.com/boards/all_albums.php - it lists the 400+ albums members have created over the years.
