Hello,

 

unless IPB removed the feature during an update, there is the option of specifying a reason for editing one's post. I thought it might be nice to extend this feature to the member groups, allowing anyone to specify why it is that they edited their post (optionally).

 

For example, sometimes I edit my posts for reasons of grammar. It would be nice to tag such posts with, "edited for spelling/grammer." In contrast, sometimes I edit my posts to add more information, rather than double or triple posting in a thread (when I can). It would therefore be nice to tag those posts with "added content."

 

I think this would be useful for members, to see if some people edited their posts to add/remove content, or to simply correct grammatical errors. Thanks for taking this into consideration!

BRAVO MY FRIEND, BRAVO. :clap2:

 

I've mentioned something along these lines before though without the solution you proposed and I think it would be an absolutely fantastic addition.

 

Here's to hoping someone with the powers be in charge actually listens & strongly considers it. It should be a no brainer really.

I'll take a look at it sometime tomorrow. We could give it a test run for a while, no harm in that.

I don't think it's important. The feature is present on another forum I visit and I don't care for it.

So did you by any chance? How did it go? What's the update if any?

With our current board version, edit reasons are only present for members who have the ability to remove the "Edited by" legend. The problem with that is, we'll see a lot of issues between members where a post edit caused the conflict (which is something we had to deal with years ago). It's a bug, I believe, and I'm not sure if it's fixed in the new version.

We'll eventually update the board, though, and we'll find out at that point.
