I am just wondering if I post is edited on here, it may not actually be gone from the server. Does the server have a backup of original non edited posts or when the post is edited on this forum, does the original data get overwritten?

Just for curiosity's sake, why do you want to know this?

I just want to know if any previous posts get overwritten when they are edited. I know in order to really delete data from a hard drive securely you need to delete it using encryption. Can moderators technically see original posts even after they are edited? This just occurred to me that they could still see original posts since they can ban people. I do not plan on breaking the rules on here. If it was up to me, I would ban the Google bot for indexing this forum, but it is not up to me.

The main reason that I want to know is privacy reasons.

As far as I know, if you edit the post it only stores the last datetime edited, but replaces the message content in the database and doesn't keep history.

I think I once made a phpbb2 forum and it did store the edit history, and showed the changes in green and red. Might want to try this just to see. I always try to fix my posts before someone else replies, but sometimes it doesn't happen and the blasted "Last edited" stuff appears, then I keep increasing the edit count for revenge.
