I think this board is set up in a way that five minutes after you post you cannot edit your post.

Only Moderators and Admins can delete some posts but rarely do it. It wouldn't look good if everyone would delete their old posts. If you delete some posts here and there, threads would change and possibly good content would disappear. It would also make threads hard to follow if some posts would refer to other post that would not be there anymore.

It is more like half an hour.

Right on all counts, belama. :)

If a member does need a post deleted for some reason, they can PM their request to one of the forum moderators and we'll take care of it.
