Option to specify reasons for editing comment

Option to specify reasons for editing comment

Short, concise description of the idea
Give people the option of saying why they edited a comment.

Full description of the idea
I like to say why I edited a comment, but right now all I can do is type a statement at the end of the edited comment, which ends up being slightly redundant, like so:

(edited to add missing cite)

Edited at 2007-12-01 10:19 pm (local)

I would like to be include a reason in the "Edited at" statement, like this:

Edited [optional addition: to add a cite / to fix spelling / because the author had a better idea] at 2007-12-01 10:19 pm (local)

An ordered list of benefits
  • Provides a shorter way of specifying the reasons for editing a post.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • If giving a reason is optional, none except slight increase in database usage/storage.
Tags: comment editing, § no status
  • Post a new comment
