    I dont know if this has been mentioned alreday, but what i dont like is the fact that people can edit their posts after quite a while but it doesnt get marked within that post at all. This means that people have the chance to claim about manipulations within discussions as people chance theit posts over and over again without it getting marked within the post itself.

    yeah, I assume an 'Edited by X...' will be appearing at some point. It's definitely needed

    Edit history and edit time limitations are definitely needed.

    Yep! Also an option for mods/admins to redo the post to one of the changes within the history; just like wikipedia.

    As long as moderators can access post revisions and see "last edited" information, I personally don't think it's a big deal if the rest of the forum membership can't see it. Actually, I think it just adds unnecessary information to the post-area.

    I agree with Nick.

    Wait, where have I heard that before? :confused:

    Maybe an unobtrusive 'history' button that opens up a history, kind of how wikipedia does it -

    Edited dates are useful in keeping track of certain posts to check to see if they were updated recently. History would obviously be moderator-viewable via permissions, but there has definitely been more than one occasion where I check a post's last edit time to make sure time sensitive information is up to date.

    Does anyone have any information on this? I was really hoping for some way for us to be able to track edits and see a time stamp for them.

    Why do you think that ?

    Why do I think what? I never said anything in that quote, see the problem.

    No. because I quoted everything you said. So if you think someone is going to delete what they said, then quote them.

    FYI, I do agree with you.
    I'd like to see [Edited] when the post goes beyond 10 minutes.
    I am just pointing out a temporary option.

    I agree with this as a reader and a poster. Sometime I write a post and need to go back a and clarify or change something and the edit history shows a reader to review it. As a reader, it's much easier to see I need to reread a post if it's got edit history.

    Time Limit for Editing/Deleting Posts

    There is now a permission that allows you to specify a time limit for editing or deleting posts (in minutes). To maintain backwards compatibility, this defaults to unlimited in all upgrades. source
