Basically in other forum-like places I have been to, posts and threads and guides and articles and recipes ect show when/how many times the item has been edited.

For example, my "Will Review for Food Thread" at youngwriterssociety.com displays this at the end of the thread:

Quoted:
Last edited by seeminglymeaningless on Sun Mar 06, 2011 10:03 pm, edited 48 times in total.


Another post/thread by me states:

Quoted:
Last edited by seeminglymeaningless on Thu Sep 16, 2010 10:42 am, edited 30 times in total.


This allowed other reviewers/readers to see that, yes, this user listened to advice, this user edited their work, this user put effort into what they are showing to the world.

I was just wondering if this sort of tracker could be added to the Guides on this site. I would truly like to see how many times I have edited my guide, as I'm sure it has to have been over 100 times by now :)

This is not important, of course, just curious about if this could be implemented/if anyone else thought this would be a good idea.

We already have:

that sort of bar, so adding:

wouldn't be that hard, would it?

I would agree for posts, but for guides it's probably just better if the user adds a "change log" sort of chapter. If they make significant changes that they feel should be documented and people should be informed of, then they can put that in. What if someone has edited their guide 200 times but have only fixed typos constantly and kept experimenting with formatting?

Dunno, for guides it's easier to just let people know in a change log if you've changed something dramatically that would warrant a re-read.

Seems rather unnecessary to me.

Edit: both on comments and guides, that is.
"I'm ebolakin. You can refer to me as Ebola-Chan." - Vurtax

"I also am Otherkin. Whenever autumn rolls around I can feel my kin-type slowly taking over my body. You must know, I identify as pumpkin. I can control it pretty good most of the time, but when September ends, I just cant hold it in anymore. Whenever Im outside I see my brothers and sisters being chopped into soup, coffee, donuts, cake, drinks, bread - ppl even cut human faces into their skin, making a mockery out of their noble appearance. When I see things like that I cant control my pumpkin urges anymore. My natural instincts kick in. I then sit down motionless, while getting bright orange." - Morgana L

Summoner: The problem with a change log is that not many authors have the initiative to keep such a thing up. I do on my Amumu guide, but on my others, I don't. I think Jhoi's suggestion could be useful for guides - just minimally.

^Same as Wrath, my changelog is huge, and I wish I had reserved first comment to put it all there :(

New people to this site should have to wait like 2 weeks or something before publishing their guide, just so they have time to look around first.

what does that have to do with this thread at all T_T

and no,

we get a lot of our userbase from ppl joining just to make guides, especially for new champs, this would piss a lot of ppl off and decrease our new user flow by a large chunk.

I also wish the little pop-up description on each thread would update when the OP is changed.

This would help on guides, showing when the last edit was done would help a lot to know if the guide is outdated or not :)
