    I can usually edit any of my posts, but occasionally this feature isn't given to me.
    What am i missing?

    Just a guess, but there may be a time limit for the edit option?

    I think posts can’t be edited after 24 hours. I think...

    Yeah after 24 hours the edit button is gone and we no longer own our content.

    Hmmm, my above post is missing the edit button.
    I’m posting on my iPad.

    Looked at my posts from this morning on my laptop and the edit button is still there.

    Maybe the server is being updated or something?

    OK I looked at my above posts on my laptop and the edit button ("Edit") is there, but it's not on my ipad.
