I think the posts edited should also be added with the new posts in the lists every time one edits their posts, i just edited my post and put in the trailer , but there will be less people seeing it as it wont really be seen as a new post in the search column !
I'd suggest something should be done to make sure the people know that the posts have been edited !
- Pssst, [spoiler]PM your friend or someone who posts on that thread to tell about the new important addition you made, and the person is likely to make a new post and that will bring up the thread. [/spoiler]
I understand the "NO double posting" rule is sometimes very frustrating.
But, I think, if double posting is permitted, some people might make intentional "bump" posts to bring up his/her own thread. (Yap, I had seen some people done that even on this board, before him/her learning about our "No double posting" rule. )
And, I know on some other boards, threads bump up automatically when any of the posts on the threads is edited. (Tho not on our board.) But, in my own experience, this became more annoying than useful, because people like me would make tons of typo mistakes, and I have to make frequent editing of my posts to correct them later, and so are quite few others.
And, since the program can not distinguish if the editing being done is some important and note-worthy stuff being added, or just correcting typo mistakes or some rewriting being done or adding some silly stuff, if we somehow able the board to make some "notice" whenever the thread is edited, I think this might trigger many "empty" notices, and so, in reality, this may not be as useful as it might sounds.
Theoretically speaking, if the thread is busy and has many traffics hopefully that will ease the frustration of no double posting rule.
(And/or try the method I posted above. It usually works well, IMO.
