Hmm, there's no current way to get rid of it. I'll consider it as an option for a future release though :smile:

Thank you wellmashed, we surely do try to offer something different. I like that idea-offering a board setting to allow the edited by to not be displayed when a post is edited. :biggrin:

Don't know about you but it kinda bugs me...

What reason do you need to know if a post has been edited by the author ???

Especially if he/she has just gone back to correct a typo....

I think the only time you need to know if a post has been edited (and why) is when a moderator has cut a chunk of unacceptable material out of it ...

It's pretty much based on the idea of someone making a post ("Hey user X, you suck!"), then someone replying to it ("You suck more than me!!"), then the first user edits his post ("I think user X is wonderful"). Then he's the innocent party, and the second user appears to be the one in the wrong.

If you don't know who's edited what, then it can be a bit sticky at times. Especially if you get in a situation where you don't know who really said what, and who didn't say anything :smile:

If it starts to look really fishy like that can it not be backed up in a log file for admins to revert the topic in question back for admins viewing then he/she could see exactly what went on and take appropriate action???

So that any edits are kept in a log file for say 3 months and then auto deleted.
Becoz i'm sure the user that is wronged will complain about it or it will be plainly obvious what has gone on just reading the content of the topic...

I like the "edited by" feature but I wish it was maybe smaller and farther down on the page.

If I edit something twice, I just delete the first edit.

No wellmashed I wasn't talking about your board :eek:

I meant a board with posts like Chris was talking about.
