Hi.

 

I'd like to request the ability to prevent users from editing messages when the message has already been read.

 

This requires the sender to create a new message instead of editing the message.

 

In this way, readers don't have to re-read the message over and over again, while trying to identify what was edited, multiple times.

 

Thank you!

Other ideas to consider:
Prevent users from editing messages after x amount of time.
Prevent users from editing messages more than x amount of characters.

I think for effective communication, best practice, and good etiquette, editing messages should mainly be used for fixing typos.

Otherwise it just kills my productivity and interest in following up, but that may just be me, personally.
