    This question is mainly directed to a Mod, but if someone else knows the answer, then I welcome the response.

    Earlier today I reported a post because it contained an offensive image (the image was safe, but the caption used an "F" word, a word used to describe gay people).

    My question is, if I report a post and then that user edits their post to remove the image, can a mod see what the image was originally or will my report now seem out-of-context and baseless?

    We can see the original post, it's pasted into the post report.

    And too late to the game:

    As your post edits are visible to you and you can compare your edits, moderators and admins will be able to do the same with all posts:

    PS: Since I edited this post without adding a reason for editing and was within the five minutes window before an edit comes visible below the post, can I only see my edits, when I type something into the Reason field? And can mods see my edits despite being in the five minute window?

    Edits within five minutes can only been seen if a reason is added. Even we can't see the edits.
