text [/edit]
Some consistent style, like EDIT: text
Inconsistently, but edits are typically indicated.
I just add the text in, without any annotations.
I don't edit my posts.

I mean people would be posting everytime they wanted to add something they forgot
And then you'll have people who can't rub two brain cells together (queatrix) spamming the hell out of threads
And then somoeone would misspell something
And say "my bad I spelled 'someone' wrong, sorry"
So in conclusion I disagree with your idea.
I think the current way of doing things is just fine, but hey, forums are a strongly-typed language, right? If edit tags can add a bit more clarity and structure to the board, then why not add them?
It would be nice if the forum notified you if someone replied while you were editing a post or replying to a post. I usually only edit my posts if I'm the last post and it hasn't been very long since I posted. Otherwise, I'd worry about people not noticing the edit.

i either do the edit tags or type edit: - meh
however, I think this board has a time limit for edits...and if you are adding anything other than trivial info (spelling, typos, etc) you should indicate an edit done. With the amount of people we have here your post could have been read a 100 times before you edit it. If it is a hot topic I would just make another reply indicating the edit.
