When you edit a post, does it register as an unread post, if not, it really should, so that people will be notified of the changes.

it does not register as a unread post, though I usually type EDIT: and the edit after that unless it's a minor spelling/grammatical error that I notice before people read it).

But if they did not view that topic till it's updated by someone else, they would know the previous post is edited. So there should be like unread post, or edited post. And mark it red.

or mark it as orange for a edited post and a button to go to the page with the edited post, and maybe the editor can disable the highlighting for minor updates such as grammar or spelling fixes.

I think yellow is better, seeing as some topics are marked orangey-red when unread.

Well, really, unless you edit an old post, it shouldn't matter Too much. If you're quick enough, people won't even know you Needed to edit.

If it desperately comes down to it, and no-one has responded yet, you could always repost, and delete the original.
