A recent proposal showed that a majority support a feature that allows editing of posts. Here’s my suggestion for how this would work. I’m mainly opening this thread up for discussion of implementation, though, so everybody can kick ideas around and hopefully come up with something that we all like.
My suggestion is: There will be some kind of indication that a post has been edited, e.g. a string at the top or bottom of the post that says “Edited at ______” with a timestamp. This string will not appear if the post was edited a brief period of time after it was posted (say, 60 seconds). This allows users to clean up small typos and punctuation without being “penalized”.
