Is there a time limit for a question to be answered?

As I was browsing through the list, I saw that there was one ten days old. It then occurred to me if there is a rule for how long a question stays open. Would it be necro posting (spamming) to answer one that is say a year old?

Hi Brian! There is no time limit for answering a question. I saw a brand new answer just the other day on a year old question, so it does happen! :o)

Oh well yes. I didn't know if a person had a time limit to "answer" a question. Judging from the feedback, that is apparently not so.

Ryguy59, the time limit you are speaking of is the amount of time you have to edit your question. Once you pass that limit, you no longer can fix typos or reword your question.

No there is not . There is only a time limit to edit your posts.
