Turning off editing comments counting as new activity


We have been using Discourse for over 6 months now and are very pleased with it :slight_smile:

A community member has asked something that we are not too sure about:

Turning off editing comments counting as new activity

But would like to promote the idea of disable this if possible, that every time a comment is edited, it counts as new activity. I might be the only one with that issue, I just edit comments later for misspellings, additions etc, and often this can take some rounds and just unnecessary Its shown again… and I think most use it for misspellings, which would make it unnecessary to count as activity… It also wastes peoples time, opening up a thread to see nothing happened since last.

Is this possible?

Thanks for any help!

Best wishes,


It is discussed many times before.




Thanks very much! :slight_smile:
