# View original text when user edits original post.

Hi quark,

I was wondering if it's possible for moderators to view what the original text was after a user edits their post. I couldn't find anything - I know if a user deletes their post then it's possible for us to view and possibly undelete the post - but if they simply edit out all of the original text I can't find any way to undo that action.

This is not particularly helpful but if you can view the google cache, if the page has been cached and if the cache has not been updated to the edited version.

Code:
cache:yourlinkhere
Sadly the webpage cache of the "split plot" thread has already been updated.

It was a simple thread and I still remember the original post for the most part but it irritates me when that happens...
