I guess that's why I created the topic, to see if there were any strong arguments for or against. The fact most Internet forums have it would suggest there must be some good reasons to have it. I don't really care either way but it's good that we all get a chance to vote on it I think
And bringing this up has given me a good idea for something else - I'm going to enable it regardless but if everyone votes no I will make it so it only shows if you edit your post after 10 days, the purpose of this is so me and the mods can track when people make changes to the front page and content. Before, I've had to change the forum theme to see who made a change which is annoying.
