This thread was already legendary when Blizz straight out replied Never Edit: Never.
Then we have Maurice's awesome exhibition of legos, and now Fred who's been thinking all these years you need QPs to stealth edit.

I recall actually I was completely unaware of stealth editing myself for quite a long time, and was really bothered by the fact my name appeared as latest post while I just correcting a coma from an old post I randomly came across or something. It is thanks to Artu that I could discover this feature, when he sent me an HCM revealing the holy function.

Stealth editing is serious, hence the importance of this thread to get stickied. I bet more than half of the forum doesn't even know about stealth editing. Something with a dagger?

Stealth Edit

Fred, tne stealth edit shows in the box but not as the last person of the thread. See? I just made a stealth edit but your name still shows as last poster in the thread. It would show mine if I hadn't stealth edited, even though I am not the latest post.

LALALA FRED IS DEFECTUUOUS LALALA WE WILL GET HIS REPLACEMENET SOON WITH FRED 82 LALALA

Non-Stealth Edit

Bla!

@ verry and galahad: i can't stealth edit. i click the box labeled "stealth edit", but it still shows in the upper righthand corner that i edited the post. so, the stealth edit function does not work for me. i had thought up until now that it was something that came with more red stars, but it looks like it's just me who can't use the function the way it should. although that doesn't make sense. if I'M not able to use the stealth edit function, that should mean that NOBODY with less-than-whatever-is-supposedly-required red stars should be able to, either.

so, what gives?


edit: test

i never use recent replies, or the main page to keep tabs on what's being posted. i only use "today's posts". so your solution/answer is moot. and again, "stealth" implies "not seen". a ninja doesn't care if he can only be seen a certain way. a ninja's job, is to NOT be seen, in ANY way. *insert missing hc ninja smiley*

It's not about what you use, it's about what others perceive. When you correct a typo or some similar tiny thing without stealth edit, it appears as if there is new content in a thread when there actually isn't. So people open it only to see stuff they already read. It's not the end of the world but clicking a button before you submit a reply is not something hard to do either.
