Nope, if someone posts after that post, it will always show. As it will if you edit it for a prolonged period of time after. :sneaky:

If you edit within the first few minutes (maybe 5, I don't know) it will not show edited by. After that, it will show edited by. I know it says in supporting member benefits, that you will not see edited by. But I don't think that has ever been the case. I don't see what difference it makes. After about 45 minutes or so, you are unable to edit posts anyway.

Guess the difrance it makes is the fact if you are paying or donating for something and are supposed to get something in return then you get what you pay for right ? other wise its just no point and your just giving money away

Supporting members can edit their posts for a longer period of time ... i think jimmyH was referencing the non supporter time frame

Okay. Serious. In all honesty, does it matter? Obviously you edit your own posts, so what's the big deal?

And the point of being a supporting member isn't to milk the site for more features, it's to, you know - support it.

Exactly. Well said roo.

As for the time frame, it used to be the same for all members, regardless of whether or not you support. It must have changed. I didn't notice because I have never needed to go back and edit my own posts. Besides, I can edit everyone's posts as far back as I want :D

Yeah the timeframes have changed. I believe now everyone can edit their own posts for 24 hours.

well also if you guys go back and start reading some of my posts over the past few weeks you will see that the ones that are edited are mostly edited for reasons i go back and go threw them with spell check if i forget to do it before
i think y'all might have noticed over the last few weeks
that it is sometime much easier to read and understand what im writing and all

So then what does it matter if it tells us if it's edited or not?

Long story short, it is however it is, and that is the way it is going to stay. Sal has a whole list of things more important than whether or not "edited" shows up under your post.

Since every word in the quote has correct spelling (even though the incorrect word is used), I fail to see the irony :P

Like you, Alanis didn't understand irony either. And no, that isn't ironic either, it's merely coincidence.

See, you're smarter than I thought. That was a complex, dual level implication and you got it...

I didn't. But then, I kind of ignored it.
