As of late the edit icon on my posts has been randomly missing  :(

Yeah...a while back we had a user upset by something or other who then commenced rampaging through deleting ALL his past posts, which naturally threw many threads into cryptic disarray. In response, the Admins at the time restricted editing or deletion of one's posts to one hour. There was an announcement of this change at the time.

Since then, I've joined the Mod Squad, largely to lend my size 11½ boot to the occasional "roach stomp" that is spammer control. But I think I can also edit others' posts, though I'd likely never presume to do so unbidden. Still, if that past post of yours is really keeping you up at night, shoot me a PM with a link to the specific post, along with whatever changes you'd like made to it or whether you'd prefer it deleted outright, and I'll see what my newly-acquired super powers can do for you. OK?

Bilgemaster you have all the power at your fingertips but remain humble, very impressive. If it were me everyone would pay the toll.  ;D

It's easy to be humble when you're me. Despite the wholly unearned "Grand Gearhead" and now "Global Moderator" titles, along with my now big blue balls in my user blurb, do you remember "Riverdance"? Well, when the scammers and pester-bots crawl into our midst, I'm just the auxiliary helper monkey seen here stage left, just out of frame...

Nothing hugely important, just wanted to change the calculator link at the top of this thread   https://forum.classicmotorworks.com/index.php?topic=27506.msg314991#msg314991  with this one   https://www.gearingcommander.com/   as the old one appears dead now. Pretty sure this calculator is the same one but with a name change and useful updates

Thanks!
