1)
On Post, Reply and Edit, a button to abandon the post/reply/edit without making changes
-- I managed to delete a post when I wanted to abandon the edits I was making

2)
on the 'All Threads by Date' view, an indication of the forum for each thread displayed

Also, does someone editing a post cause it to be marked as unread to people who've already read it? I think it should, but then it would be a good idea to add a line at the bottom of the edited post to note it as edited.

I agree. I asked for the same thing.

2) on the 'All Threads by Date' view, an indication of the forum for each thread displayed


I agree. I just thought of the same thing not more than 5 minutes ago.

You can simply ignore the box, it doesn't prevent to open another one in the tread.
if you want to undo unwanted editing, either ctrl+z multiple time will put it as it was or a page refresh (F5) will close it.

Done. There is a 'Cancel' button on the right of the box.

2) on the 'All Threads by Date' view, an indication of the forum for each thread displayed


Done. I kept the data, but forgot to display it.

Also, does someone editing a post cause it to be marked as unread to people who've already read it?


No. It won't make much difference unless the editing is significant.

Inside threads only. Each message has a timestamp on the top right. If updated, there will be additional 'updated' timestamp below it.

Update: like this message

Oh. I thought the request was for the "All Threads by Date" topic. So that when you see the list of the threads that have been updated, you'd see what topic it belongs to (such as "Authors Hangout" or "Lost Stories").

This way, if I'm not interested in posts in the "Lost Stories" topic I would know not to click on it.

I see what you did -- putting the topic under the thread name.

Thanks.

Yeah, the topic under the thread name is good.

Excellent - and just what I expected to be done.

Thanks.

Edit;

...and this sort of reply illustrates a valid reason for use of the 'Reply to topic' link, so it's not quite as redundant as I thought it was.

But maybe 'Reply to topic'/'Back to top'/'Forum rules' could be left,right and center in single stripe across the bottom, to save screen real-estate - opinions anyone?

I like them positioned the way they are.
