Sometimes a post gats a subscript telling you if a post has been edited - sometimes not - after it HAS been edited.

Is the trigger system unstable, or does it allow a certain number of character changes before triggering? I've noticed that small grammatical corrections don't seem to act as a trigger, but adding a line does..

I think the line only appears if you perform an edit after someone else has viewed your posting. If you correct or edit a post before other people have seen the "draft" version then no-one ever knows that you had to go back and make a correction.

Apart from this exception, I have always seen the little "last edited" strap line appear at the bottom of my posts when I have had to make changes.

I think Alex is correct.
