Official Everybody Edits Forums

Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Allow everyone to view the edit history of a post.

The title says it all - basically if someone posts something, it would be nice if we can see their edit history.

Re: Allow everyone to view the edit history of a post.

Yeah we need this because someone could say something offensive and everyone gets mad at them, and then they could change their post to something innocent and it makes everyone look bad.
Or the reverse, they say something that a bunch of people agree with, they get a bunch of woots, and then they change their post to something offensive, and it makes everyone look bad.

literally the only good use for this is spelling mistakes or extra clarification

I dislike this. I don't want anyone seeing my posts unless they are the finalized versions of my posts. If you have a problem with that, then ask yourself why you do

Re: Allow everyone to view the edit history of a post.

I guess it wouldn't hurt to have such a feature, but in all my years on being on this forum not once have I needed nor wanted to see someone's edit history.

Most edits are trivial - usually used just for fixing grammar, word choice or sentence structure. There's not much to look at.

The situations Tund described are really unrealistic. And even if someone were to write a controversial post and tried to edit it later in an attempt to trick others, people are still going to remember the original and call that person out even more, so such a system would still be unnecessary.


How long will it take me to get banned again?
Place your bets right here.
