I thought posts showed when they were edited by a Moderator..
Such as in a (very) recent post of mine that contains something I did not write, but no tag indicating the Edit ever occurred.

(Also, I find it interesting that they left in the "Wizard Tyranny" bit and took out whatever it was I wrote after the picture.. I can't even remember what that was now. Probably something clever..)

The thread-o-bot does what it does when it detects stuff it doesn't like! No idea what you wrote, I didn't see it myself, so can't comment on that particular post. I suspect whatever it was broke one of our two rules though? Usually stuff that gets edited is marked in red though. Perhaps the thread-o-bot needs some maintenance.

And why would the Thread-o-Bot write something that makes the OP look like a fool?
If that's in its design, then yes, I'd say it does require some maintenance..

Well it's a gnomish machine... reliability isn't their main focus always.

I recall the line now and it was:
"It was right here the whole time!" (Perhaps not verbatim, I still can't quite remember..)
Does that break any of the rules?

No, I believe the Thread-o-Bot is in fine working order.
I suspect there to be a Moderator that simply does not wish to speak on the matter.

Oh now I see why you post was edited and the topic locked. Don't you know the prophecy about Liw....Li....? I can't even say it. It wasn't that you broke any forum rules, it was that you mentioned L...Li... *sigh* The thread-o-bot will cut any mention of that to shreds immediately. And for good reason. It might just have saved the entire donut by doing so. So just, don't!

Except it didn't cut out the bit that mentioned the Promised Land or Master Styles..
It edited out a purely harmless line and replaced it with a foolish sentence.

Yeah I don't know Melarec. I don't know what the original post said, and I didn't edit it. Perhaps an error was made? Or maybe you forgot what you wrote and thought it was edited? Maybe you're writing foolish things and then try to blame us?!:)

No, really, I don't know what or why this happened. Like I said if we edit something we usually do it with a bold red color.
