Sometimes when you click on the number of an edited post, it's not immediately obvious what the difference between the current post and the previous was. This would highlight the differences like edits to articles on Wikipedia or posts on image boards do.

It would be a nice option I guess. Basically deleted text could be red with a line through it, and newly added text could be green.

Shouldn't be the default option, but a 'show changes' button could be useful.

@Unown_201 : Rather than 'show changes' button, I prefer controlling it from 'settings'

It would be a nice feature in general, but more often than not, it's just a spelling/grammar error being fixed. Maybe add a button for you to press when you edit your message if this is the case?

A good idea. *sign*
My NES, SNES, and GB all work just fine. Who cares about graphics when the gameplay is awesome?
