Why can't I edit or delete a post in the forums after I make one?

Sorry, I don't know where to ask this. This seems to be the only forum not tied to a product. 

 

Everytime I post in the forums, the ...More link to edit or delete is greyed out for me. (see pic) That box doesn't expand. How do I fix this? I'm logged in. It's the same on Safari or Brave.

The exact combination is a secret, but new users are not allowed to edit a message until they have 'proven' themselves as real, not spammers

Thanks. I made a few typos and wanted to correct them and was surprised I couldn't. I thought it might be a setting I couldn't find, but now I understand why. 

 

Cheers,

We are talking about editing / deleting a post that a user created. Not delete or edit any post!

Typos, important info missing etc. lots of reason to edit a post. Delete when it's no longer relevant or you realize it was a dumb question. Keeps the clutter down in that case.

We all understand what is meant, but they are the rules. I have over 50000 posts and I cannot delete.
