Except for the nautically vectored post t1 had so much trouble with the other day. That one is timestamped.

yes, it's still a rush to delete.lesterb wrote:So maybe we should also be able to delete a post for 30 minutes?
Right now, it's a lot less that that, I think.
But you can get creative and "edit" your post out of existence. So maybe the two times should be the same?

i have used the "creative edit" a few times in 6 years .. esp when i notice a mistaken double-post. instead of asking mods to delete the extra post, i just edit it down to "nothing," then let it go.
one way to add "endless" editing/deleting time is to put the post in "saved drafts."
typically when i use saved drafts, those posts never see "the light of day." no loss to anyone!
i like the longer edit time.
i'm not sure about the delete time.
if delete time were extended, there would be a lot more "catching" and replying to those (later) deleted posts. as it is, that doesn't happen often.
i credit you with the extended edit time. you requested several times on MD. so, thank you!
