I am thinking of getting rid of the field "edit summary" that appears under the "edit" form - on the question and answer editing pages.

Would you miss the field if it were gone?

I personally like the feature.

  • It serves as an excellent log and may be helpful to back-track like a time-machine ( think git)
  • It is very helpful to see all the updates of the answer, as a timeline.

May be this can be made an opt-in feature in the site configuration?
