    So. After editing the one post over 12 times, I got curious like the title said>
    How many times have you gone back and edited a single post?

    I don't really edit all that much, I think 5 or 6 times was the maximum in a single post (and I think that was adding to the post and not changing the existing text), but I do tent do write every post for hours and go back and rewrite it several times.

    EDIT: Typo.

    EDIT: Edited for clarity.

    EDIT: Removed the previous edit.

    EDIT: nvm

    EDIT: wait, what?

    Not sure, I usually end up editing each post at least twice, the most is probably around 10 times

    ACTUAL EDIT: spelling

    I often edit; most of the time only once.

    The most I've edited a single post I don't know...maybe as many as 6 times?

    I honestly don't know, but probably less than 10.

    Including or excluding my major topics?

    I'd say around 50 times with, around 20 times without. (I edit a lot of my older posts to test stuff)

    That's why

    No clue. But I do it A LOT. Typos, rephrasing, not so much adding extra points but occasionally yes that too. I don't strive for perfection. I'm just too disorganized.
