Editable Comments

Eagle eyed viewers may have noticed a new "Edit" button next to their comments. Yes, you can now fix a broken link, correct a typo, or add additional information to your comments.

Things to note:
  • Any positive moderation points will be removed. Negative moderation points will remain to prevent trolls from reseting the comment's score by simply editing their comment.
  • The "Edit Time" of the comment will change. This will allow visitors to see it as a new comment (and turn it blue.)
  • The full history of the modifications can be seen by clicking on the comment link. The diff is colored with green (additions) and red (deletions) backgrounds to help highlight the changes.

    Good point. Can't see any obvious remedy to the ability to throw off a thread... Making available the edit-history of a comment should help somewhat though.

    Maybe a -1 edit abuse would help?
