Post version numbers based on how many times the post gets edited.
This is something I was thinking about the other night. It's just something more fun than anything else. What I was thinking about was adding version numbers to posts which would vary by how many times the posts get edited. For instances.
When someone first makes a post the post would be Version 1.0.
The next part could happen 1 of 2 ways. Either every time they click "Save changes" button after editing a post the version number then gets changed to 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and so on.
Or (and I think this better) it would look at how much of the post the user actually changed. If the user replaces every word in the post and starts again, the version number would go from 1.0 to 2.0. If the user only changed half of what was said before, it would go from 1.0 to 1.5.
If the user only changed 1 word in the post it would go from 1.0 to 1.01, you get the idea.
Just something I was thinking about. I just thought it would be cute.
Note: Or it could use the Firefox version numbering system, when the user changes just 1 word the version number goes from 1.0 to 2.0 <------- That was a Firefox joke and not a serious suggestion.
