Others likely have more detailed information available, but here's what I understand: You have some amount of time (perhaps on the order of a couple/few days) when you can edit your own post and make changes to the content. After that, you can send a PM (Private Message) to any moderator/administrator and request that your post be modified. In the latter case, we'll try to accommodate requests. However, there have been cases when we have declined to delete a post that had several replies, because deleting the post would have left the replies lacking a foundation. Similarly, a wholesale rewrite of a post might also be declined.

If you do edit your post, it can be helpful to append a note that you edited it, with a brief description of what you changed (fixed a typo or spelling error, corrected a miss-typed number, etc.) so that someone who read the post before isn't left puzzling that they thought the post said something different when they had read it a day or two earlier.

It's currently set to 60 minutes. I'm sure that hasn't changed since our move to phpBB some years ago.
Have you searched the Wiki?

Good to know. At least it's more than a handful of onoseconds. :-)
