Message was Edited ???
What is with the little message that appears at the bottom of a post when you edit one of your own messages after submitting it?
It usually says something along the lines of Message Edited on 04/08/2002 12:23:12PM....
Why does it only show up about half of the time? I am somewhat of a perfectionist, so I will look at my message when I'm done and often edit it to make it more readable, or if I didn't catch a typo. Sometimes I can edit the message two or three times and the 'Edited' statement won't be there. Other times I edit it once, and there it is. What gives?
Yep, I edit my posts also due to mispellings ect, and my take on this is that the edit message does not show up until someone has accessed the thread, or maybe a certain time has elapsed ect. I have edited a post 2 or 3 times while playing with the UBB code or color, and it did not put the edit notation at the bottom...and I have had the edit notation added if I simply click my post into edit, put a period in and resubmit it if there was another member somewhere in the thread.
That would make sense. I never really checked to see how many people *looked* at it. I lose count because each time you do something it bumps the view count up anyway.
I have gotten before without any replies, though.
I "think" you get "X" amount of seconds (maybe up to 90 seconds) to edit your own post without getting the message.
And, if your really fast... You can edit the title of a new post..
