Post edit history

Post by Guest on August 16th 2011, 10:27 pm

I think we should be able to view post edit history to be view able by moderators. Members could break the rules, for example bully another user, but edit their post before a mod sees it, then there is no proof and we could have no idea that bad things are happening on our forum.

Please vote if you support

thanks

Eh, I don't see purpose in it. If they edit the post then the offending material is gone. Plus I (and I'm sure many other people) edit my post just to remove spelling or grammatical errors.

Yes, but in a case where somebody was harassing another member that was afraid to tell a staff member, that member could just edit their posts before a mod has a chance to get to it and then we wouldn't even know anything happened.

Other sites I use such as GFAQs have this feature and it's very useful.

I still don't see the point. Your moderators should catch this kind of stuff. And if someone posts something and another member has enough time to see it before it's edited and staff don't, then maybe you should hire some more staff.

This is one of those over thunk, over excessive suggestions.
