It would be helpful, I think, if when an author revises his or her piece on the Workshop, a tag could be added to the title in the thread list. Maybe a simple drop-down date stamp that only the original poster would have access to, so that under the original thread title it would thereafter read (maybe in red or some color other than black), "Revision Posted on [date] at [time]. Yes, I have mercenary reasons for mentioning it. I started a crit thread for an excerpt of my novel on June 1st. Got some good (that is, incisive) feedback, but the rewrite wasn't coming together. I worked on other sections of my book instead. This week I got the redo of those chapters to the point where I could repost them. I did, a day or so ago, and it bumped the thread to the top of the list. Well and good, but I've received no new critiques. And why should I be surprised? There's no way to tell there's new material there. A member sees me cited as the latest commentator on my own old thread, and for all they know I'm just saying "Thank you" for previous crits, or worse, posting something marginally relevant to bump it up. Don't know how easy this would be to program, or if anyone else would see the value in it. But when I go into the Workshop to decide what I might like to review, I'd appreciate seeing what excerpts have been revised. As for preventing misuse (for improper thread bumping), seems to me if someone falsely put up a "Revised" notice and there was no revision on that day, it'd annoy members to the point they'd no longer pay attention to that author. Thanks!
