Tbh, I don't care about cotrecting my typo's, I think almost every comment I write has a typo. I stopped caring about correcting them as its strange when people assumed that it's linked to bad literacy lol


My post was intended as a joke in the vein of this thread. You know, because if you fixed the typo then there would have been an "edited by", ahh it was funnier in my head.

Here's an idea. Since this feature is clearly not going anywhere, why not work around it?

 

Simply use the edit function on every single one of your posts, always. That way the footnote is rendered pointless and redundant, since technically, all of your posts have been "edited" by you anyway, regardless of whether you've altered them after hitting the post button. It could become a sort of protest schtick.

 

This could easily be defeated by the admin adding an "edited X times" to the notice, but I think we'll see a full revamping of the forum software as a result of the MS acquisition sooner than small changes or bug fixes...

I have considered this option.

Seems a bit of a stretch to do every post, though.

Yeah, seems a bit exxxtreme.

Yes, but sometimes what you really need is more than words.

Well, we mods have to physically check a box just to leave the "edited by" notification. That, good sir, is too much effort for me to participate. Instead I shall choose to stand with you guys by never, ever again, leaving an "edited by" mark. I do this for you.

LOL ... I was always too lazy to check that box too.

It could be a signature. Is there a way to automatically add the time stamp? :p

At least the latest breed of spammers leaves a trail of 'Edited by...' when retroactively updating approved posts with commercial links sprinkled in there randomly.

There is no place for half measures, compromise or moderation (cough) on the road to greatness.

It seems no one got the reference. Extreme? More than words? Anybody?

Saying I love you
Is not the words I want to hear from you
It's not that I want you
Not to say, but if you only knew
How easy it would be to show me how you feel
More than words is all you have to do to make it real
Then you wouldn't have to say that you love me
'Cause I'd already know
What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying I love you
More than words
La di da, da di da, di dai dai da
Now I've tried to talk to you and make you understand
All you have to do is close your eyes
And just reach out your hands and touch me
Hold me close don't ever let me go
More than words is all I ever needed you to show
Then you wouldn't have to say that you love me
'Cause I'd already know
What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying I love you
La di da, da di da, di dai dai da
More than words
La di da, da di da, di dai dai da
More than words
La di da, da di da
La di da, da di da, more than words
La di da, da di da, di dai dai da
La di da, da di da, more than words (oh uh uh uh)
More than words

Considering that I've been at this for 4 and a half years, it doesn't seem like such an outlandish ask. I mean, really.

I searched and couldn't find a topic about it, so I'll ask here. Does anyone know how to solve the problem with the notifications? I think somebody commented in another thread that it was caused by someone's username.

 

Edit: since that person replied to one of my comments I can't see my notifications.
