Date of Post should not change

This is just a quick idea. Date and Time of a post should not change if you edit it. The original date+time should be preserved, and it should automatically add the date and time of the modification.

It could look something like this: Feb 12, 2015 12:23 PM [Modified March 2022 2:45 PM]


This would make it easier to decipher some threads.  I tend to fine tune, and there are times when I don't add notes to my old posts simply because it would throw it out of chronological order, and make the series of replies confusing. Also, on principle, changing the date stamp is wrong.


There is currently an optional message to indicate changes were made (see modified message below). It claims to say When changes were made, but that would be redundant since the original date+time is overwritten (so the original date becomes the missing info).
