G'day All,

I was looking at a node which I thought may have been modified by the poster. I wondered if Janitation History would enlighten me. It didn't: "This node has not been edited yet.".

Just to confirm that, I checked "Re: how to write a vertical TK Entry?". I had fixed a minor typo in that: s/wigdet/widget/. Again, Janitation History reports: "This node has not been edited yet.".

I wasn't really expecting Janitation History to report on poster edits; however, I thought it was worth checking. It's often useful to know if a poster has made modifications, especially when subsequent posts by others don't seem to make sense.

I'll just throw this open for general discussion:

    Hi Ken,

    I think it has been discussed many times before.

    And I remember a time where even janitation history was not available to that extent.

    Anyway I think we have more urgent problems atm than a complete edit history.

    Though a "last edited" timestamp would certainly help in many cases.

    This should be comparatively easy with a quick return of investment.

      G'day Rolf,

      Thanks for your response.

      I certainly wasn't trying to imply that there was any urgency for this. It's not something I'm desperate for; I just thought it would be a nice feature to have.

      Your 'a "last edited" timestamp' suggestion sounds like a good idea. Presumably, if there's no Janitation History, or the Janitation History shows a different timestamp, then edits must have been done by the OP.
