    I know /topic makes the last person to edit the topic be seen, but not the people who came before them. My suggestion is when you hover your mouse (or hand) over a certain part of the topic, you see who wrote that part. This is especially useful when the topic becomes long because I don't think there's a command that does this already. I was thinking about the Trivia answers when I was coming up with this suggestion because you can see who wrote what during a Trivia game. Also making this a global command might be helpful to the uniformity of the Pokémon Online server.

    Doesn't sound like a very efficient system. Also, does the client even have mouse-over interactions at this point? Plus, it sounds unnecessary and annoying to have random pop-ups when you're scrolling, but that's just my opinion.

    EDIT: never mind the comment about mouse-overs, but fragmenting the topic into parts is still not so efficient

    I think a simpler way to handle this would just be to make the "Topic last edited by: XXX" line that appears when you use the /topic command appear by default below the topic itself.

    Or simply make the server register who added/modified/removed a specific topic part by using the /topicparts command, I'm not quite sure if that command is accessible for non channel staff but at least should be. (ex: [4] Don't forget to read the rules! (Added by Oak - /Date here etc etc/) > [4] Rules have been updated, give them a check! (Added by Oak - /Date here/ - Updated by Strudels - /Date of update etc etc/) ) a hypothetical case of adding an editing the fourth topic part on main channel, again all this mess would only be visible with topicparts command not the regular topic. Oak's alternative would be the general way to show who touched stuff on topic last time.
