Time limit to editing post?

I hope there isn't.
Or at least as long as it was in the old forum.

The german forum has a 5 minutes (!) limit which I often run into, checking
my own fresh text walls for spell or content errors.
It also adds new posts to your last post if no one else posted since. The edit
time frame is given by that of your first post - so no edit ability at all in that case. 

Generally I think posts should be editable without limits or time frames.
People learn and develop, opinions change, why not update posts.
Its a communication and information forum not a historic archive.

The time limit should now be fixed, yeah it defaults to 5 minutes, which only makes sense if we were trying to use posts as evidence in a court of law or something, hehe.

The edit post issue can be temporarily worked around by selecting the "reason" field at the bottom and then hitting Enter, it should force a submit even before we get the button fixed.
