Members can edit their posts for a finite period of time. Moderators can edit posts indefinitely.
Currently the edit window for members is 120 minutes for posts and 5 minutes for thread titles. The edit note displays after the first few minutes.
The reason for the restriction on post edits is that sometimes a member may go back and change content after other members have posted. This can destroy the continuity of a discussion and isn't fair to other members. 2 Hours seems long enough to make factual corrections and if more are needed, you can either post an update or ask a moderator for help.
