I find that sometimes I answer a question and then the Original Poster (OP) changes the question. The problem is then the answer may not seem correct. The system does not notify us each time a question is changed or edited, that we post an answer to.
In legal documents there's a concept called red lining. What happens is that when a change is made there's a red line placed under the changed part so that the receiving party knows what changes have been made.
I was wondering if that's something that people would be interested in having here, or if it's possible at all to do.
So for example. Let's say there was a question, "How many different uniforms were there in Star Trek?" I might answer and give a listing of the various colors and styles in the various series. Then the poster changes the question to say, "How many different uniforms were there in the original series of Star Trek?" So now my answer looks like overkill and might get downvoted, not upvoted, or criticized and I didn't even know that there was a change made. We could have a red line under the words "the original series of" so that when community members read the question they immediately know that those words were changed or added, and take that into consideration when reading answers.
I realize that a downvote may show up in my reputation queue, but sometimes it does not. In addition I may just not get upvotes in this scenario and would have no idea. I realize I could go through and check all of my questions and answers multiple times daily but that is not practical for most of us.
I know that at the bottom of every question you can click on the edited link to see what edits have been made but I don't think that most of us do that. We usually assume it's grammar, spelling, sentence structure, etc. Often times a document goes through many edits and the edits of the OP are lost in translation. If it's an edit by anybody other than the OP I usually figure it's simply a grammatical change, as most users are courteous enough not to change the meaning of an OP's question.
I was just wondering if there's any interest in adding this feature or if it's possible to do at all.
