in reply to Update post date after edit

I have previously had a similar thought; I'm glad ++you took the important step of acting on the thought, rather than procrastinating like I did :-). It would be nice, when listed in the RAT/Newest Nodes, if such a post highlighted itself somehow (an asterisk or similar) to indicate it's a changed post, rather than a new post.

    ...a post highlighted itself somehow (an asterisk or similar) to indicate...

    I would suggest to tag an updated node using CSS class attribute (i.e. updated) with a sensible site-default:

    <div class="$AS_BEFORE updated"> ... </div>
    Now, every monk can fine-tune the layout using own CSS redefinitions (Help for Display Settings). Something like i.e.
    .updated { border-left: 1px solid red; }
    or
    .updated::before { content: "UPDATED: "; }
    Perhaps add ud-$YYYYMMDD or updated-today or similar for more customisation options?
