  Posted: Earlier on, I remember when a post got edited it would say so in the post... so like if a Mod fixed something it would show, or if someone changed something they had said it would likewise show. It doesn't seem to make a note of that anymore for some reason, and I sorta miss it, but what does everyone else think? Have you even noticed? Is the forum better or worse for the change?

  Posted:Dio,

If you post a topic or a reply and then edit it yourself for mistakes (spelling or what ever) within the following 5 minutes then the "editted by " message will not be added.
If you or a moderator or even I edit it much later than 5 minutes of being posted then the "edited by " message will appear.

Regards

Malcolm

  Posted:Ahhh I see.... that was when I noticed it was when I had spellchecked myself and noticed a glaring error...

Just another one of those finer points I don't pick up on I guess
