Can't edit post?

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

Unfortunately regular members cannot edit posts due to a function implemented to stop spambots which would create seemingly innocuous posts only to later return and insert spam URLs/active links.  Since implementing this restriction the number of successful spambots has dropped from tens or even hundreds per day down to only a handful every few months, often with entire months passing by without a single successful spambot post.

I apologize for the inconvenience, however the spam was becoming unmanageable for the forum moderators and admins who were having to constantly deal with the barrage of spambots while still attempting to perform their normal work duties of running the forums and helping to assist users on the forums.

Yes, that is the case, however there is at least a preview button so that you can check to see what your post looks like before posting it.  It is in the editor on the left side just before the B for bold.
