Editing posts does not register as an edit and adds post count

Post by Mawmoocn »

Greetings,

If a moderator edits any post, it will show something related.

I found it odd whenever I edit my posts, confirmation for edits, does not appear.

I use preview before posting, for most of my posts.

It also adds post count if you edit your posted replies.

Is this a normal feature?

The reason for editing is something available to moderators, but it is optional. If a moderator edits a post and doesn't provide a reason, you will not see anything.

I also don't see that edited posts are counting towards the post count. For example, you have a post count of 46, and 46 posts are listed here.

I guess I misread it then :oops: I apologize.

I thought it was a feature.

Thank you for clarifying.
