this is kinda random but you kno what might (might!) be nice?  post edits bumping threads.  no more need to double post just to get things back on the first page?
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

"Bumping is the devil, mmkay."

Even if it is post edit situation, any form of bumping seems kinda' desperate in my opinion. (unless there is really, really meaningful add on's to a thread, like an update, or more pieces to a gallery and whatnot...and even then, it's still debatable) It's always best to be patient.

my back hurts...

I'm pretty sure it does. I don't think it bumps it, but it does change the thread to say that there are posts you haven't read yet. I think that's a pretty good idea.
I don't think bumping if it's from an edit is that bad, after all it's being bumped because you've most likely changed something. Though, if it gets bumped from edits, it'll be a lot harder to tell if it's a legitimate bump, I'll give you that. Though, I don't think bumping is that big of a deal anymore, the forums aren't nearly as active as they used to be(or it seems), where after a day your thread has been pushed onto the second page. Most threads stick around on the first page for a while, no matter how little attention they get.

They might as get well Master chief..chiefy....commander...who gives orders....with authority....and like....is....imponent...guy  now, dont think Micro$hit is gonna fold tho.

Sonic is looking pretty good! it's just a trailer but it does look like he can kick some ass.
 I just wish Snake had been better executed...what's Snake without stealth? he might as well be some random soldier...

if the editing box got a "bump" checkbox with a field requiring explanation for bumping would be just purrrfect. the end of doubleposts.

Why don't they just hurry up and release SSMB already?  I'm sick of all of this hype.

Ok hate to go all pedantosaurus but as much fun as it is to bash halo, Master Chief is not just some name they made up by combining words.  It's an actual rank: Master Chief Petty Officer, which you will find here: http://www.defenselink.mil/specials/insignias/enlisted.html  So while I agree that it does sound silly, it does make some measure of sense.  It's basically like naming your franchise star "Lieutenant".  Reasonable, but dumb.
