I can't edit a post?

Either I’m blind or there’s something wrong with my account. I can’t seem to edit my own posts, even immediately after posting.

I finished the discobot tutorial twice. I have the problem even in the advanced tutorial.

The only way to get past that step is to delete the post, which counts as editing it.

Basic (new) users can’t edit right away.


But according to that blog post, I should be able to edit my own posts within 24 hours.

“explaining that new users may be temporarily limited for safety reasons” kind of alludes to it

The tutorial with @discobot gets you promoted pretty quickly.

Hi! To find out what I can do, say @discobot display help.

I did finish both of discobot’s tutorials.

Whoa you really are not new looking at your read time and topics viewed… Perhaps you took a hiatus from the forum and it’s catching back up.


Make this guy a Reggie again?

Indeed, I did not log in for a long time. But after coming back, it looks like some of my privileges were removed with no easy way of getting them back.

I bumped you up to level 2. is that where you were when you left?

Wow, Twinsen of Wube? Very cool to see you here, I’m a big fan.


Not sure. But I’m sure I was able to edit posts.

Wait are you one of the guys who made Factorio? That’s cool AF.


Too many hours in Factorio send help.
