    I have edited some posts (after seeing my typos) as late as 30 minutes after posting them and not once has there been any indicator showing that the post was edited.

    To be clear, I have had no problem in editing the posts. I am just wondering why there is no notification that they were edited.

    Conceivably, I could post "Obama is the greatest president the US ever had" and you could reply "I agree completely."

    At that point, I could change my post to read "Obama is the worst president in America's history" and your post would appear to agree with that statement.

    I agree he is the best and worst!
    Seriously you bring up a good point. There should be some timestamp so it is clear when the update occured.

    A good point and a reason to include quotes when referencing another post. (though that could be edited too!)

    You have a good point, but fortunately you are allowed to change your mind.

    I agree it would be nice to have it like on FT. If you edit the post more than 5 minutes(?) after making it, an "Edited:" notice appears under the post.

    Perhaps the honor of unlimited editing could be without the notice for 30 minutes as well.
