Hey, so whenever I decide to edit a post more then once I delete the "edit post thing" that appears, is that fine? Should I leave it so users know how many times I edit the posts?

Whenever I edit I usually just fix spelling errors or add information.

Cheers

I think deleting them is the best course of action.

One edit is all that's necessary to let all of ATS know that you're an idiot who can't spell correctly. Any more than that is just showing off your ignorance to the whole world to see.

It's ok to remove your own edit lines. There's no need to have several "edit by you" edit lines at the bottom of your post. However, you should never remove any edit lines by mods.

Haha how many fox maulder fans do we have on this site?

Edit signs cant be removed. No idea why.

There is always the one that will pop up.

Edit lines CAN be removed, but only the previous ones, not the last one. That's why you always have at least one after an edit.

I always remove multiple edits, it looks messy below your post.

I do always point it out when I add something.

You can also change your date format to something like "\w\h\i\m" for extra fun.

Edit: But don't do that.

Thanks to tiny spell,(not to be confused with tiny spill) precludes my need for gratuitous edits.
Grammatical and intellectual errors, I own.

If a Mod edits your post for you, thank them!
[look ma..no edits]

I have no problem displaying whatever ignorance I may have to the public. I do not intend to give people the false notion that I do everything perfectly or that I do not have a change of heart.
