    I'm ... pretty sure, I think, that it used to be possible to edit posts. I don't think it was permanent but it was enough to allow for correcting typos for a few minutes.

    Has this gone away?

    OK I'm having a definite blind moment. There is only a single occurrence of Tools on the page according to FFx find (now two with the two mentions in posts). Throw me a bone with a screenshot/description of where the bloody thing is hiding?

    Are you talking about editing individual posts or the thread title? The thread title can be edited in the top right of the thread as shown here.

    Well now ... this is interesting.

    Yesterday both Edge and Firefox did not show the Edit button (nor Delete, actually) next to my posts. Today they do.

    I swear I'm not making it up ...

    Chrome. Yeah not in this lifetime, or the next. Or any of the infinite universes.

    It's strange - despite any assumption that there are an infinite number of universes, and therefore infinite universes in which I am slim, fit and married to Emma Watson (or whomever you choose), there is amazingly not one in which I have installed or will install Chrome.

    Funny thing, universes.

    Also - multiple browsers not showing it? I'm thinking caching somewhere or something similar (CDNs perhaps, or similar). Regardless. Works now.

    @DavidRa less of multiple universes and more of a permission got messed up when I made the modification for your resource edits. My bad!
