The current time limit on editing posts is 24 hours.

The problem with an infinite time limit is, people can post something nasty and then after people respond to it in anger, go back and soften up their message, and we'd have no record of what they originally wrote. Also if someone ragequits the forums, they could go back and clear out their old posts which would be very disruptive to following a conversation. However I could see the time limit being extended to a few days? Thus far, we haven't had many of the type of folks I mention above.

And it's easy enough to post a reply to a sticky thread saying "I've updated the first post to include new details, links, etc."

But ultimately it's up to Brian.
