@jesicarson do you mean that we should remove the time and timezone or just the timezone? i think both are important especially if there have been multiple edits in a day, and the timezone is important since our editors are located all over the world. if an editor makes a change and then sees the timestamp for their change, without a timezone, i could see it looking like a bug if the time is not displayed in their timezone. An alternative to showing the timezone next to all of the timestamps could be to add a note under the table that says "All times are displayed in UTC"
I feel like we should show all edits on the entry, including if there are multiple from the same person in the same day. The reason for this apart from true transparency into the editing history, is if another editor made an edit in between the other editors edits, we would want to see that history.
In this case where there are multiple edits on the same day at the same time, it could be that the editor was making quick changes and then publishing and checking them, and publishing again. I've tested this again, and the changes are getting saved and displayed correctly.
