That's your problem. The UK site has a number of bugs which don't exist on the US site, including that one. You'll also notice that the quick edit doesn't work, you just get a cancel button. The website engineers are working on these bugs but were only recently told about them.

I've seen the "can't edit" comment so often from new posters that I thought it was a requirement that you had to have a certain post count before the edit feature was enabled.

I don't think so. I can edit my messages in this forum. But I can't in Overclocking forum. I have the same post counts in total for both forums right ?

Maybe I should try US site...

I haven't had that issue in the US site I don't think.

If you have a problem, try switch sites ;)

Then when THG's advertising profit goes to chocolate...

I still can't edit my messages in overclocking forum but i can in this forum. Why ? Why ? Why ? Does anyone have any logical explanation ?

The question has been asked many times, but I've not seen a good answer yet. It's a real pain!

The answer is "it is being worked on".
December 4, 2008 5:10:59 PM

That's not a "good" answer!

Then what kind of answer do you want?
December 5, 2008 3:42:27 AM

It can't happen?
December 5, 2008 8:24:46 PM

how about "were copying the code from the working forum, give us 10 minutes"
December 6, 2008 12:01:54 AM

how 'bout... no response?

How long can it take to fix? This has been going on for months now on the UK site... :(

Some of the UK site bugs I reported they didn't know about, and they are working on a few at a time. The logout bug (where session cookies aren't cleared) especially will take some time to fix.

i could write a brand new forum faster than they are fixing the bugs in this one.
December 8, 2008 12:05:32 PM

So this is pointing to the need for a proper bug tracking system, maybe something where we can see expected fixes and click to add ourselves to the list of affected users. If people are reporting bugs here on the forum and the developers do not know about them then clearly the present system is not working to well.

Plez do.

I'm new to this forum and have exactly the same problem. Very frustrating because I completely messed up one of my posts in the Overclocking forum and I can't edit it. :(

You could just use the US forum for the time being.
December 26, 2008 9:45:25 PM

Same problem several months ago, same problem today.
Fixing this type of bugs shouldn't take THAT long time... I guess the website admin just lazy or being unresponsible. Tsk tsk...

I got the same problem and its quite annoying. Are the US forums a mirror copy of the Uk forums? I always get send to the UK site since I live in europe. I don't want to be bothered to switch to the US constantly.

Please fix this issue ASAP! Thanks.
