  • Question

  • Can you please update me with the status of the request to only show 'Edited by' when the message has replies? I really would prefer to not have 'Edited by' tag in every message when I had to correct some typos or bad formatting.

  • Status is that we fixed the problem two months ago where multiple edited by fields were always displayed. Currently, we ONLY show the last edited by line item. Requests were made to ONLY show edited by if the posted had been replied to, but that is stuffed down in the backlog, I don't expect to get to that any time soon. Hope this helps.

  • Too bad :( Ok, I see. BTW, this was the way forums worked before - several months ago, before that problem was introduced.

    Personally I think that it is still needed.  Even if it has no replies, a person could have viewed your post and then come back later to see different information after your edit.  Without the 'edited by' comment, it could cause confusion.
