Because they contains very useful information and users should be allowed to update them anytime. I've seen some sticky topics on popular boards that are closed (500 posts). Suppose, if I wanted to tell the TC to update the topic with a new information, they won't be able to edit them. To update it, they have to re-create topic as there is no other choice.

I'm only suggesting this for STICKY topic!

And there's no need to store more than 1 previous edited messages. 1 is enough as back-up message.

I've been hoping for this, but it's been shot down many times.

*Signs anyway*

I really think it could work if instead of normal edits, they get added to a queue to be looked at by a lead/mod/admin for approval before the edit takes place...

At first glance this seems like more work for the site, but I'm sure it would be an incredibly rare occurrence, how often do stickies really need editing? Maybe once or twice?

I don’t think it’s been shot down. If anything, the admins have stated it’s something they are considering; it’s just not a priority at the time. What usually happens is a general lack of interest and topic archival.

This can be abused. Sneak in a TOU violation, and after a little bit, make two edits to the post to remove said violation from view completely.
