Is there a time limit for how long you have to edit the title of a thread you start? I wanted to correct my spelling of Riemann, but editing my post only changed the title of the first post.

That is how it worked on MHF and Physics Forum. Whenever you edit the title, it actually never changed the name.

I've fixed the title.

Could be wrong (can't seem to find the relevant permission section right now), but I don't think regular users can change the title of a thread once they've posted it. Or, if they can, it's only for 10 minutes or so.
