Default How do I contact a moderator to re-allow post editing?

I thought I could just send a DM/PM to a mod, but that option doesn't appear to exist...

Try clicking on the username and choosing send private message. Alternatively you can click the report button on your own post (the red triangle at the lower left). Post editing is usually reserved for exceptional circumstances, to preserve the flow of a thread.

You have 30 minutes, after which, as Allen says, you contact one of us.

Ah, OK, weird. The first two mods whose names I came across were planet10 and anatech, and neither of them gave me the option to send them a message. But I can see that I can send messages to both of you.

Strange.

If you do not need personal service, the triangle "!" Click the image to open in full size. icon lower-left of your message in question is generally best. This puts the request in the Moderator's Dashboard, so the next mod online/awake will see the request.

Pulling the curtain: here is a screen-snippet of another forum on different software and redacted for my privacy. But the essential functions have changed little since 1990. Mod Reports go in a to-do list. Logged-in mods have a Moderate menu. In this one, if there is stuff to do, it blinks. Any Mod can read the report, act on it, or not, close it, or not.

When there are 100,000+ members on a free forum, you get some strange reports. That's why the Report icon here warns of "overuse..penalties". However *your* issue with re-edit time-out in a long useful thread is (IMHO only) a reasonable request. (Especially since it is hard to express this forum's edit-lock in one thought.)

Thanks. Essentially a coincidence with the first names I saw, then.

Appreciate everyone's feedback.

As PRR suggests, if it is a general request simply hit the red triangle.
