Please. Many times I have wanted to add or change something, but it did not warrant a new post.

I believe 90 minutes is good enough. Less confusion.

Why put a time limit on editing posts in the first place?

Cheers...

Before the limit expires there is an "Edit" button in the lower right corner of your posts.

To prevent confusion. You may be replying to someone's posts and it can turn out they have changed their mind in the meantime.

I go on many other forums and none of the other forums I go to have a time limit for editing posts. Sometimes I may run across something I posted several weeks earlier and notice a typo, and because I am a perfectionist, I need to go back in and fix the typo. I like having the ability to do that. I voted on your poll, even though I felt the options given were quite limited. I vote we don't have a time limit at all!

Default longer time- yes!

I would like more time, unlimited time actually, I have made serious mistakes, said regretable things, (at least once) that made me want to "sponge away the stone" -erase my own stupidity -like Scrooge.

I am against changing it. If someone goes back and makes major edits to their post days later, all the subsequent posts won't make sense. 90 minutes is plenty of time to read back your post and make sure you are expressing what you really want to say.
