There should be a revision history for discussion posts for many reasons.
- If a student says something against the school behavior standards but then edits it, we need a record of what was said.
- If we use "must post before seeing replies" sometimes students will post a blank space to see the replies and then edit their response. Yes we see that editing was done, but we don't know that the blank space thing happened.
- As much as we'd like to think this would never happen, right now a teacher can edit a student's post to be a crappy post and then assign a low grade. The student has no record of what the original post said when making a grade appeal.
I feel like this one's a no-brainer and ought to be fixed ASAP.
