The editing has been changed again.

Not sure I like having a history registry of my edits...

Well - only YOU see your historic edits. There is a larger purpose to this though, and that is that it will (eventually) be used to allow others to view moderator edits while being able to view your original post.

 - it's an audit, that is restricted solely to the user

 - it will be expanded to allow all users to view any moderator edits, as well as the post you were moderated for



No need to get defensive Talon, I understood it was going to be used for moderation purposes.

Anyways, you could always put the free edit period of 5 minutes after posting that we had before, then all is good.

The edit notification is too sensitive again, like a few seconds long.

Was it done on purpose?

Edit: check

I tried to mention this two weeks ago.

He just explained the purpose of the feature. How should he should have worded his post any differently?

But I don't quite understand what your issue is with the Edit registry. You don't have to look through it, so what exactly is the problem?

The uppercase "YOU" could have simply been lowercase.

I posted my issue on the VGC discord channel, will repost it here:

Edit history on VGC.....
This sucks, I hate having a history like that
It's showing my mistakes back at me
"You suck at writing, look at all your mistakes"
Most of the times I only edit in extra sentences, or correct gramatical errors afterwards.
There are even times I just edit a post aesthetically by splitting long sentences.

As someone who commonly edits my posts 10 times, because I feel I could have structure it better, or add or remove a word, spelling errors, etc, I have always been very aware of this fact, whether that Post Edit button was there or not.

We should created an edit intervention thread, to help us and others with our editing problems

In the past it was like that too, but there was an agreed edit quote free buffer time after a post,
and that was removed when the new functionality was added.

I'm tempted to edit the post above...

You mean people could edit their posts within a few minutes without the 'Last Edited by' tag showing up at the bottom?
If so, I was not aware of that.

Jejeje, clearly you have not edited enough

Maybe it's because I commonly edit more than once, so the time runs out, but that's strange. I wanted there to be a feature like that, but never noticed it.
