I posted a wrong answer before and in my rush to correct wrote the wrong thing again. I tried to edit for the second time but it would not let me, nor could I make another post until I logged out then in. Anyone know why?

I've never had this problem when editing but if you did it really quickly then the system might have decided to lock you out.

 

I know that it has checks on posting the same answer and giving too many kudos within a short amount of time, so it might just do that with edits done very quickly after the initial post.

I did that, I know how to edit, it wouldn't let me edit the post for the second time or make another post.
