I just posted a comment at 4:38 in this topic and saw no Edit button after it posted. So at 4:39 I posted a correction and there was no Edit button showing on that one either. What is going on?

Sorry about this everyone. The changes have been made and as most of you know the edit button is back.

Yup the posting time is roughly 11 minutes behind the actual time hence beyond the edit time.

Yup. The posting time is 10 minutes ahead. So I posted at 3:03, but it says I posted at 2:53, so this server thinks the 5-minute window is gone.

No edit. Server time shows 4:50 AM.

Which might mean that an edit button shows up about 8 minutes later.

Excellent diagnosis! I didn't think of the clock factor at all.

My solution is to post all msgs 8 minutes ahead of time. :-)

Server seems to be around 8 minutes slow.

We had this issue a few months ago. The timestamp of posts are off, so the system thing the edit grace period is over.

And no Edit button on the OP here, either, so it is not my imagination.
