The Son of Horus After investigating, it appears that the lock is in the site's code. I don't have a way to remove it, unfortunately. I do know that it's there for site security, though-- I remember when it was implemented following somebody sabotaging old but proprietary content, and it doubled as a way to seal some potential old back doors into the site since we've had it with Russian hackers on more than one occasion. While I'm not quite so concerned about proprietary content-- if someone decides to take down something they posted, that's fine, we can always replace it with something equally good or better-- I'm inclined to leave anything that is coded into the site's security features alone since my understanding of the site's coding is currently about on par with your average tech-priest (meaning I don't rightly know how it works.)

If it's not possible because that lockout is integrated into the site code, which it very well might be, any of the staff can edit the post for you. I admit, I am not a code monkey, though-- my solution to most technical problems is to intone the Omnissiah's Canticle of the Plug and perform the appropriate rite-- unplug it, tap on the device not working and say the holy phrase, "Make-um porn box work again?" and then plug it back in... So we'll have to see what happens.
Removing that lock would be amazing! Please let us know if your "rites" were successful

Jeez, why didn't you tell us this before we elected you to admin?

If the thread is recent you should still have editing abilities over your own posts. If it's older posts you want changed you can let any of us know and we can do it.

scscofield Yes to VS.

Have you tried recently to edit that thread?

Well, there is this common issue that posts older than 1 year (or so) can't be edited. One of my project logs looks like a ghost town because many pictures are not working anymore. I guess there is no working solution apart from some workaround like creating new log or re-upload all pictures and post them again.

As it was we could request changes to the site from Vertical Scope through the admin account, but having one of us in the role makes the process more efficient.
Quite shocking twist. What dark secrets are behind his disappearance. We can only speculate.
