I've noticed that the original post is always numbered "n of n" and that the replies below it start at "1 of n". Here is an example screen dump showing what I mean:
Surely it would be better to stick with the old system of numbering the original post "1 of n" or alternatively leaving it un-numbered rather than keeping changing its number as replies are added.

True, and I did notice and forget about that. However under normal circumstances it is something I would probably not notice. The reason I say that is that if the post is off-screen when visiting a topic I would not normally scroll to one of my previous posts to look at it, rather I would be looking at the latest posts to the topic and in all likelyhood would not percive a need to scroll back to my previous posts.
It is also of concern that while it shows the post has been edited there is no indication of the changes made.

resolution but it is something that didn't concern me as I could check via "Notifications" (as accessed via the avatar). In this case there was nothing about the edit there or, to the best of my knowledge, anywhere else.
It is displayed atop your opening post @Birchcroft ..............

@I8this Simple answer is NO.
But in general in find email notifications sporadic. In so far as while I get emails regarding likes I don't get emails relating to new posts to a topic. I know this was a common problem a while back which probably has some form of resolution but it is something that didn't concern me as I could check via "Notifications" (as accessed via the avatar). In this case there was nothing about the edit there or, to the best of my knowledge, anywhere else.☹️

@Birchcroft more to the point, did you receive a forum notification message, as required, that Gondola had done an edit?

@I8this thanks for the tip. When I select oldest to newest it goes back to the more logical order, as in the old site, and the one which I would expect to be the default. That said, if one chooses the newest to oldest order I would still expect the number allocated to a post to relate to when it was posted rather than its position in the list. IE the 1st post should be number 1 and the 2nd number 2 etc regardless of which order in which they are listed.
@TheHornedOne you are seeing the same as me, a display I find illogical, following the suggestion in @I8this post resolves the issue, but see above for my view on this. As to your PS, no I did not sanction @TheHornedOne 's edit.

@Birchcroft I have found that if you click the `Oldest to Newest`option it seems to work.
