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:
Would a new Poster History link be useful to others?
What about a combined Janitation History and Poster History
(possibly renamed to something like Edit History)?
Are there any technical issues with doing this (e.g. increased database load)?
Is there another way to get this information of which I'm unaware?
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
