Idea May 8, 2019

Maybe it could be like Kudoz postings, which can't be edited but only added to. I would favor implementing this for the forum in general (not making it merely optional).

Oh, and it should definitely include moderators and staff members.

Less rules, not more May 8, 2019

The "inclusive" format was a bad enough idea, we don't need to make the mistake twice. All this does is encourage the spelling/grammar trolls.

Despite what I suggested above, I definitely agree with you. The so-called "inclusive" format should not be encouraged to spawn any further.

Isn't that what we're all in business to do? You aren't really expecting a freebie, are you?

If indeed the note can be removed, thus providing no indication that the post has been subsequently edited (whether for a typo or for rephrasing a remark) any replies or comments published before such editing would risk being out of tune or off-topic.

No, I guess I was mistaken. The [edited at...] is automatically placed.

test edited again. If I reopen my post once again I can remove the first [edited at] though... Mmmm...
