I keep seeing days and days later that my post has been edited.

Am I that bad with verbiage, grammar, toxicity or? Or has another post by another member in a topic that I started been updated?

If I am that bad.....I need to leave.

I am getting a lot of the same notifications...the following are my notices where my post has either been edited or moved in the past six months:

A topic of yours was moved to Suggestion to add Steinbach Credit Union to HISA comparison chart (Remove Notice)

An edit has been made to your post GIC purchased on March 10 (Is Oaken in trouble again?) (Remove Notice)

An edit has been made to your post Motus has launched (Remove Notice)

An edit has been made to your post Income tax survey (Remove Notice)

I suspect there's a few miscreant forum members, whose names I do not know, who feel upset when I saw something even remotely off-putting. Personally, I think their feathers are too easily ruffled and they need to stop using "report post".

Cheers,
Doug

I get them too, but, when i look into it, I don't think anything has been changed.
My conclusion is that the system notifies me when I myself make a change, but, still, seems inconsistent.
Is there some way to turn off the notification when I make the change in my own post? or is someone really monitoring grammar etc - seems unlikely as all kinds of terrible grammar gets through.

Something is wrong here then. I don’t want to feel like I am being hen-pecked or that big brother is constantly watching over me.

Especially when I get these messages and I don’t see where any of “my” posts have been edited. They appear to be erroneous, thus pointless messages.

Similar thread here.

Edits are always small typo fixes (yes, a sporadic and incomplete effort!) or housekeeping like splitting out threads.

If your post is completely removed it is probably because you have broken the forum rules. If you are unsure about them, please review them.

I would like people to feel free to continue to use "report post". I have not found over-use of that feature in the history of this forum. If you suspect you are ruffling people's feathers too much, try being more polite, giving people the benefit of the doubt, and trying to understand other people's differing points of view. Or just focus on the financial topics at hand. We can all provide value, share our experiences, and offer help to each other while erring on the side of politeness. That's how we've grown this community over the years and continue to make this a useful place!

Except for the most obvious of spam (removed with the help of another kind moderator), I make the final call on forum moderation.
