Weird Edit post behaviour

I've noticed sometimes when I edit my post, there won't be an "edited" appended to the end of my post whereas other times, there will be an "edited" appended to my post.

At first I thought that maybe it was time related but I've noticed the "edited" appearing at the end of my post even after my post was only modified ~1 minute after the original posting.

Am I missing something there?

I believe if someone has viewed your post, the append is added.

If someone replies to the thread AFTER your reply, then any edits to your post will display the "Last edited" line. If there are any additional triggers for it I'm not aware of them.

Can we add a function that if someone replies to you, you cannot delete posts? Or when someone is replying to you post, you no longer can delete it

Doing that might add a few benefits, but ultimately it would cause more problems than it's worth. If you're concerned about someones post content changing, you can always reply with quote (which is what I almost always recommend anyways).
