    I'm familiar with the back end of Xenforo, so my question is: Does the edit button here always disappear after a set amount of time regardless of your time and participation in the forum, or does one eventually graduate to a user group that permits the edit button to stay.

    I review my posts (admittedly) rather compulsively, scouring them for typos and other unsightly aberrations, hence the question. :whistle: :cool:

    You'll probably have to wait for Black Dragon to answer this one. We mods only see the front and the sides. :)

    The edit button goes away after 1 hour. This became necessary due to seemingly legitimate members who joined the forums and made relevant posts, only to return a week or a month later and edit spam links into those posts. The moderation team couldn't possibly keep up with all posts being edited, so making the edit button go away became necessary.

    So that's where it went. Lol. Thought I was losing my mind.
