I was having a discussion with Goat and came up with an idea for Auction threads.

How about allow the OP to update the original post, but make the update take place straight after the original text so that the users can see the progression from the original to amended text.

Also I think the other marketplaces where people sell stuff should have this permanence too.

I wonder if such areas should have a type of permanence, like the auction threads? Or would that be overkill?
i personally think all selling areas should not let someone change something without a history of what was changed.

Well locking all posts like the auction threads would be a good start, if the OP needs to correct something they can update with a new post in that thread.

A better solution would be to create a section that could be appended to the original post so all the thread goers can see it, but also see it is in addition to the original post.

Example:

Quote from: Post #1
I am selling a fox for 2,000 btc.

And then an amendment to the original post:
(The important part being they cannot modify the original post at all, only append.)

Quote from: Post #1
I am selling a fox for 2,000 btc.
----
Update to Post #1:
Sorry its not a fox, but rather a goldfish.

I wonder if that could work because it would allow all newcomers to be up to date from post 1 instead of having to read the entire thing.

This does sound like a good idea. Another one would be to color in red what has been changed (including new text) from the original post. Deleted text could be struck through.

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.
