I did not find anything like this so far. This is a feature suggestion to include a new checkbox in the post editor that will prevent the topic from getting bumped after saving the edit.
The thread title could still be highlighted for an edit, but this would let someone choose not to bump their topic for a minor edit if they did not want the topic bumped. This would only show for a post that is being edited, not a new post.
I am still learning Discourse so I might not be looking at this right, I would welcome counterpoints or explanations about why this would work away from the intended use of edit bumps.
The reason that I am suggesting this is because now that I am aware, I now get a slightly guilty feeling when only making minor edits. If it is an important or useful edit, I will still make it. However, this might work to discourage some from editing. On the other hand, it might work to encourage better posting in the first place so that minor edits are not required as often.
I am sorry if this has already been discussed. The next similar thing seemed to be this: Discourse Meta
Any thoughts, feedback, clarification greatly appreciated.
