I have noticed that sometimes I can edit my own messages on chat, but when I view older messages I can't edit them. Is there some sort of time-limit for editing your own message? How long is this limit?
As of January 2013, you can remove or edit your own messages until after two minutes of it being posted. After this period, editions are locked for the user.
