Posts remain editable for about an hour after starting.
We remove editing rights after that as we have found that some folk - when criticised and corrected by others, will go back and change their earlier posts - this causes the rest of the posts to look a bit odd.
We've also had members throw tantrums and delete previous posts just to be difficult - yes middle aged men acting like 5 year old kids
We all do it at sometime or another! If you put up a duplicate post and realise you've done so it within the hour or two allowed for editing, simply delete everything and put "Duplicate post" or similar.
If you realise you've posted in the wrong section in the same sort of time-scale, cut and paste the text into a new post in the correct section, and label your old message with something like 'Wrong part of forum - moved to XX section'
