I just finished a MOD for phpBB3.0.1. It allows admin/moderator to see full history of an edited post, restore if necessary an older version, and automaticaly purge oldest versions.
This gives a way to keep trace of moderation actions overrided by user edition for exemple.
This MOD supports both english and french (I'm french so feel free to correct my english grammar) and works for the 2 base template : prosilver and subsilver2.
Don' forget to refresh the templating cache and your navigator cache if needed !
The file colour_swatch is only for prosilver for regenerating the template, else you have an error and the template DB is invalid.

All comment will be welcomed.
MOD detailed description:
This MOD allows to trace topic / post history: when a moderator edits or removes a post it's hard for other moderators / admins to confirm with the initial poster if moderation was justified. However moderators/admins have to moderate quickly to handle law's concerns and avoid causing troubles to forum owner. This also allows to keep history of what poster has written and to avoid being incapable of solving complains.
Since French laws are very straight, this MOD was essential for us: I've written the code with phpBB2 for my own use, and now I've converted this to phpBB3 and decided to write it as a MOD to share it with other forum masters.
With this MOD all edited versions of post are historized inside a dedicated table in the DB with edition details (timestamp, editor, description of action ).
To access post history, the admins/moderators have a new button close to the Edit button.
For saving BD, history can be purged by removing posts older than "X" days, "X" being configurable params inside the ACP as well as purge enabling/disabling.
This MOD can also be completely enabled/disabled and after installation the mod is not activated, you must go in POST SETTINGS, there, you will find 2 new options.
