Is it possible to change the user group setting so there's no time restriction on editing posts?

I don't think this is something we'd want to change as it would allow members to remove all their content and generally disrupt the flow of the forum. It would also allow spammers posing as legitimate members to go back and edit in spam links.

Is there a particular reason for your request?

OK, I can now see there is a reason for your request and I have edited out the link to your forum.

I should add if a member presents a good reason for wanting their content edited as you have, especially if there's an element of privacy involved, we will happily make the edit for you.

In addition, as per your second request, I've decided to move the entire thread to a hidden archive. It's old and it would lose context if I edited out all references to your forum so removal seems the best option. I hope that is acceptable.
