ooo one of the perks of the fanfiction/writers' resource forum is unlimited editing! on all other boards, users can edit their topics for up to 90 minutes after they post--after that only mods and admins can. to lock your thread: go to the first post of your thread. click the "edit message" link in the bottom right hand corner. right above the "edit" button is on your post there is a "lock topic" pulldown menu. select "yes" and click edit! it's that simple! this is how authors also add the date their story was updated in the title of the thread--all you have to do is type it in the title line.
