I'm not quite sure where to post this, if there is a place where it should be, please direct me.

But, is anyone else missing the edit/delete option on previous posts by themselves?

I think that's a case where the page hasn't fully loaded yet so it hasn't given you the option.

Make sure you give it a few seconds for the delete option to appear.

Click on the original post edit feature. When the window pops up click the delete post button.

Did you try on a post that isn't an OP? Maybe once a reply has been made a post can't be deleted.

Ok, now my edit button is gone?

EDIT: It just came back. and the delete post button is there. Try it on a post that doesn't have replies?

I'm missing my edit button, even on a freshly-made post.

Confused.

I noticed it early as well, but then I saw that the page loading symbol was still going. After I waited a while and it finished the edit button returned. Basically, pages are taking longer to load for some reason.

Edited: Yup.

I'm not getting an edit option even when the page stops loading though.

EDIT: Well, apparently in any thread but this one it doesn't, anyway.

Including the one where I have a typo to fix. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

The status bar will show the page completely loaded, but if you use Firefox you can still see the tab trying to fully load at the top. Once the Icon appears, your edit button should pop in. I have to sit on a page for 20 seconds or more for mine to pop in. That is on 100 meg connection, I don't know how much that will change how long it takes to pop in if you have 2 meg or something.

EDIT: actually it is about 10 seconds.

I don't use Firefox, I use Safari on my girlfriend's Mac (I'm not allowed to install Firefox).

It shows when you're loading the page right up until the edit button appears.

It doesn't load for as long on other pages, but even if I wait for a full minute instead of the usual extra 10s or so, I don't get the edit option in any other thread I've posted in.

EDIT: Found the problem... Actually, if I open a new tab or window, it loads faster, but won't give me an edit option.

WTF?

Also, it's taking randomly anywhere from 10s to 3 minutes (long enough to have the screen auto-dim on the laptop) before the loading finishes. Not really enjoying the changes here...
