there should be a redirect left so they know where it is

Not always.

And I think they look quite messy tbh. A quick automated PM would be ideal.

there is a default time period for a moved link that displays but it can be tweaked

Re: Post Editing

It's a default - you'd have to actually switch it off for it to not make the redirect.

Re: Post Editing

We are still talking about moved posts? When a post is moved, the forum automatically creates an expiring redirect - at least, it should.

Post edits - are all saved, you can revert between versions at any time.

It's possible though, that say for example a PM was sent for every edit, that due to the amount of them - and then people replying to these PMs - it could create too high a workload.

I'll think about it.

Not a PM though, just a notification added into the same system as the quote/thanks/like system would work.

Re: Post Editing

Unfortunately it's just as simple as adding a counter.

The notification counter would have to point somewhere, so a new page listing all the actions. But then the reason... how would it show that?

Deleted threads / posts also are hidden - so if a post is removed, there is no way to show this.

I'll be honest - I think on a smaller forum, it might be a nice feature - but the size of this one just makes in unfeasible. In our 10 years, I can't recall anyone else ever complaining about it.

The reason would be under the post.

Good point about the deleted bits though, hadn't considered that.

Maybe have a standardised pm then that mods can send when they've edited something against the rules so it doesn't come across as it's full of attitude?

I'm not dragging it back up am I, this is a civilised thread discussing a 'site idea'.

Quick example: I reported a classified, @ChrisUK PM'd him mentioning trader stuff and he said he might take it up. So that PM must've been nicely worded and not harsh.

Re: Post Editing

yes I can see what you are infering
You have been given quite a bite of rope
If you think I will continue to have thinly veiled snipes from you,then you are mistaken
you are welcome to continue for a third time with the same 'issue'.
however I wont have it be at my expense.
