As I was editing my last post in the "Distributed Computing" thread, something occurred to me.

I was editing the thread, because I had the last reply and couldn't reply a second time. I realized that the people trying to help (Guru, Merc, Big G) wouldn't be able to see it if they have their preferences as "Show new only" and marked the forum read.

Could it be possible to have a post edited after a set amount of time be marked as New again? I do understand that there could be some problems if people take advantage of this, but I am just throwing it out there anyway.

Also, I didn't seem to have the spell checker available when trying to edit.

If the only thing this does, at least those guys can check my post and try to help further.

Thanks!

I'm fully supportive of this idea. I've had no progress on my problem with the Bookmarks toolbar in Firefox, but because I have the last post I haven't been able to get that across.



This will get added at the end of each post you make, below an horizontal line. This should preferably be kept to a small enough size.

Hm... I may consider this. I don't think I want to lift the double posting rule and the editing thing is a pretty big mess. We may be stuck like this.

Sorry for an essentially pointless post, but I've gotta ask: Will we be seeing any of the ideas presented in this thread implemented in any way in the relatively near future?
