I have no idea why, but I can't seem to find an edit button today. Any idea why? I tried Firefox and IE, no luck either way. I am logged in, clearly I could post this thread, I'm so confused!

I want to adjust some photo links, I reorganized my Photobucket account and need to reconnect the pictures.

On several other boards, including Tahoe Yukon Forum - Chevy Tahoe | Tahoe Z71 | GMC Yukon | Cadillac Escalade Forum and forum.xda-developers.com there is no time limits of any kind.
People there use the lack of limits as a build thread, and rom updates thread respectively.
Personally I'm investigating the editing of older posts as a possible method of getting around the low char count signature limits by creating a build thread whereby the original post is always kept up to date so that readers don't have to read through potentially hundreds of pages to fathom the current build status as it progresses over the years.
I would imagine the 6 hour limit is imposed by the owner of this site, not vBulletin itself. I would also imagine that it could be used as a tool to prevent a mass editing of older posts.
Am I correct in understanding that the owners will be agreeable to keep updating the Original Posts for me if I just send them a PM with the updated content?
If so, then I can still create a build thread for myself and the time limit won't affect me.

If there is the need for the options described, let's get it worked out. We are doing our very best to make the members feel that this is THEIR community, but we also have to take technical aspects into consideration.

First one is for my truck, Second one is for my wife's.
