This question might sound stupid but I noticed that I can’t edit posts that I created a while ago, e.g. to fix a typo or to clarify an answer I gave.
Editing is usually done by clicking on the pencil in the bottom left of a post. But the pencil isn’t shown in older posts. Is this an intended function of this forum?
I would guess it is a anti-troll mechanism.
You post something, I answer – then you come back later and change the original post so my answer looks stupid… I.e:
You: Vote for Hillary!
Me: Totally Agree!!
You: Edit Hillary > Trump
It makes sense in this scenario. Otherwise there are also legit ones.
I made you a moderator, can you check if that had any effect?
Indeed. The pencil is now shown in any post regardless of their publishing date.
