Your editing grace time had expired... a feature request from quite a long time ago to stop such retroactive behaviour.

OK. This option I know. I thought...

EDIT: :mrgreen:
Now I don't understand... It is "how many times" or "how many seconds"? Why I cannot edit my previous post although i didn't edit it, and i can edit this 5th time now?

How can I fix my stupid spelling errors now? It will be set to 300 seconds by default right?

You can't. Should teach users to compose their posts more carefully. Or alternatively you could look into using Spellingcow on your forums. ;)

I think there should be a dropdown to choose seconds, minutes or times :) (It is not a feature request - just a Discussion ;) )
