Wow, I didn't expect something like this to happen.

I don't really understand you example of a use of edit post.


Another example is say you are using a roleplay and you need 5 characters to start

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Without the edit post you have to continue to post this and people will have a hard time finding the updated version. I know it sounds stupid but theres also another use. Say you have categories so people can determine whose who.

Knights
1.
2.
Jester:
1
King:
1.
Peasants:
1.
2.

But this is mainly for roleplays where it's mostly character interaction and you don't have health bars or stuff like that. But it also works best in games such as yggdrasil where you don't have to constantly post the tree health and end up with confusions. You can just continue to edit the first post changing the health bar, weathers etc.

I can foresee trouble arising from that...two people having an argument/debate then one person deletes and edits certain parts of their posts to make the other look like an idiot..


Many forums' edit buttons show the previous text, so it wouldn't be a problem.

Usually people in the debate forum quote a lot, so if someone edited their own post to make someone else look bad it would make them look stupid.

And, if it doesn't show that, it usually shows something like.

I've been thinking lately that we can have different codes like spoilers, titles, codes and we can have emoticons.

I can see the usefulness of spoilers and titles, not sure what you mean by "codes", but I'd hate to see emoticons. Another one I think would be useful is underlining.
