When/how exactly are us lowly noobs supposed to earn that privilege ?

I even got locked out of a thread I started when it was shifted to another subforum, getting kinda old.
Is it a matter of time, post count, what ?

This article should answer your questions.
I see by your profile that you are up to 98 posts now, so that magic 100 is now within your grasp!

The thread that you cannot edit was moved to the wasteland. Threads ending up there are typically threads that cause moderators a lot of work, or the topic is such that is just fluff threads that have no redeeming value.

Yep figured as much, wanted to reply not edit and yes I was getting bombed by snarky questions/comments.

I dunno, seemed like a very legit and obvious question to ask and it was fanboys who trashed the thread, not the actual post or me. But hey, I understand it is not democracy in action here and you gotta do what you gotta do.
