I haven't ever seen a ten-day restriction either. However, I've seen 15-minute restrictions on a a number of forums, & many forums allow no editing at all (eg, Twitter). Somehow the world survives.

As noted, if you wish to make a correction or change something about the post, contact site staff/PM us.

This is in place to protect the integrity and flow of threads as it removes the ability for members to go in, change their post, context, argument, or remove the post completely, damaging the information.
