Hi Everyone,

I created a a few threads in the past. I noticed that i had a misspelled word in the title so i thought of editing it and correcting the mistake. But when i edited the thread and clicked on submit i got an error message of something like "You cannot edit this thread". Is it a bug or are all threads not allowed to be edited? I can do a quick edit though. Its just that i cant do the normal edit.

Does this only really happen when editing the title?

No... Few weeks ago i tried to edit the thread as well and got the same thing. Since it was my first thread created by me on the forum i thought... "Maybe coz this is the first thread i am creating, i am not allowed to change it!"

Thanks, I'll try to let them know. However, as randomizer said, the UK forum has quite a few bugs. For now, just use the quick edit. Hopefully, all the UK bugs can be fixed soon.

You can't use IMG tags for locally stored files (do you really want this site to have such easy access to your PC? ;) ), you'll need to upload them to Photobucket or some other hosting site.
