How long posts remain editable
Slide the bar to set the time period during which posts remain editable once they have been posted. You can set this option to: never; 5 minutes; 10 minutes; 20 minutes; 1 hour; 1 day; 1 week; 1 year; or always. (Forum moderators and those with permissions above this level can always edit posts.)
You can select whether or not to show avatars in your forum and provide the address of an avatar service (such as gravatar.com). Avatars act as consistent images for your online persona across different sites. Enabling this feature on your forum enables users who have signed up to the Gravatar (or other) service to have their pictures displayed alongside their posts.
