Is this a normal situation? I checked other posts where there is this little icon for me to edit but not one which I started.

After 48 hours, posts can not be edited.

If you need to make edits, you can use the report post icon and leave a note about what needs to be edited. A moderator will either make the edit or contact you to clarify any confusion. :)

Setting a limit on how long a post remains editable is an option that's available in a default installation of phpBB3.

Ozzu started using the time limit in May of this year.

Correct me if I'm wrong joebert, but this is so people can't come in a year after inactivity and change all their posts to spam for backlinks or the likes - right?

Leaving posts open to edit indefinitely leads to all kinds of headaches. From the situation you mentioned, to someone having a competitor or little brother break into their account and add/remove things to posts, to selfish people who for whatever reason decide they want to come through and ruin conversations by replacing the content in posts with "edited".

Ozzu was actually one of the few forums around that didn't have the edit time limit in place for a long time.
