Editing a post bumps the topic

Editing a post bumps the topic.

it’s not ‘normal’ forum behavior… i’m not against it but i edit just about every post i make at some point (typos or secondary thoughts etc) and rarely do these edits warrant a topic bump… if i thought i had something important enough to add which will bump the topic, i’d make a new post.

idk- i’m not necessarily suggesting changing the behavior… just saying it feels sort of weird every time i edit a post.

Editing the last post does bump a topic, yes. But only the last post.

well, as long as you’re aware of the behavior and want it to be that way, i’m completely fine with it being set up like that.

maybe this is more of a disclaimer thread for me then-- i’m not bumping topics around here for the sake of bumping topics… i’m doing it because i type too fast without paying as much attention as i should :smile:

There is a 5 minute grace period for editing posts, so as long as your edits on the last post in the topic happen in that 5 minute period after posting, they will not bump.

Edits after 7, 10, 20 minutes will.

ok. thanks for the explanation.
