It used to say "last edited......." near the bottom, but I don't see that now.
How can we currently tell if a post (made by someone else) has been edited?

Just hover over the date of the post. Edited posts have a dotted underline.
For exemplification, I'll edit this post after the grace period.

Edit: Done.

I thought I would ask the question here rather than it getting lost in the other thread, theymos posted:

.....
The change is that all edits are now logged, whereas previously they were only sometimes recorded in DB backups.
.....

Does this mean that admin and mods can now see the original version of a post after it is edited? I think previously only deleted posts (and not edited posts) could be viewed without going to the backups.

Yes, correct. Well minus the mods part.

Thanks BadBear for the confirmation. It's good to know that scammers can't cover their tracks by editing their posts.

5 minutes from what I know. It might be longer now since edits are being logged.

I'll tell you what! Give me one hour... just one hour perusing said logs, and I'll walk away a rich man. A very rich man!

BTW, I'm glad I stopped by in this thread, for even though it wasn't mentioned, I somehow noticed something I've never noticed before. If you look below the date of the post and see dots, i.e. ................................................., the post was edited. Simply place your cursor over the date, and you'll see the last time it was edited.

Now, back to the beginning of this post. Theymos, if I gave you $10,000, would you let me have access to the deleted and edited posts for only an hour? If not, how about $20K USD?

It'll almost be worth quitting college for. Je dis juste.

With all due respect, I mentioned it a few posts above.

Apologies for missing it, albeit I did read the entire thread prior to posting. My bad!

My other bad was not including a roasted goat dinner to theymos with my now $30K offer.  Grin
