    I don't like it much either. I think we should have the option like the admins do that say whether or not at the bottom of the posts you want it there.

    Allow user to remove 'Edited by' legend?

    Set that to 'Yes', please. ;)

    Well, I love how it adds mystery to what it was that I posted.

    The post that this is editted from was wacky.

    The edit thingy can come in handy for us, so I doubt its going away anytime soon.

    Lets say a member breaks a rule in their post, members start saying "You shouldn't have said that" blah blah blah, then the guy goes back a couple hours later and edits his post. With that there, he can't say "I dont know what you're talking about, I never said that, those members who told me to knock it off were playing games" because it shows he edited post later.

    I remember we used to have the option to turn off the 'Add the 'Edit by' line in this post?'.

    Good times.

    that would be giving special treatment which is exactly what that guy said the admins give here. That would justify his statement.

    Yeah! I'm not a big fan of that! It makes me wonder why people would bother to see if you edited your post.

    Random Person: Oh my god...he edited his post! Tell the press.

    Associate: Mr. President, this member of the Linkin Park Association edited his post.

    President: Do nothin' about it. I'll handle it myself with my Kung-fu fighting.

    Associate: Yes, sir!

    President (to poster): Alright, this room ain't big enough for the two of us.

    Poster: Alright, dude, just let me finish editing my post and I'll get outta here.

    ---

    Alright, that's silly stuff. But I agree with the thread starter. I find it pointless to be there, and sometimes annoying.

    I know it's annoying but it isn't pointless. Todd already explained why it's there. ;)

    I would think it's your own personal problem if you got something to hide and that includes any shame for editing your posts.
