It has always been the case on Inward Quest that 60 minutes after posting a comment, it becomes permanent and the edit button disappears.
We have now extended this 60 minute time limit to:
We are doing this because we've noticed an increasing number of instances where some users have been selectively (sometimes maliciously) deleting comments and answers from days, months or years ago that then lead to existing question threads becoming incomprehensible or misleading.
In summary, you have 60 minutes after making a posting to change your mind and delete the comment, answer or question before it becomes permanent.
Note that this time limit applies to deletions only. You can continue to edit any existing question or answer of yours at any time. And users with more than 2,000 karma points can continue to edit other users' questions and answers at any time.
We allow this because any user can track the changes that have been made by clicking on the "edited" link under any edited question or answer, so no posted information is lost
The question has been closed for the following reason "No longer relevant" by Barry Allen 20 Jun '13, 09:48
This may also cause problems because I remember when Jai excitedly posted something that she really believed in.
It sat for two or three days and even got a down vote so she deleted it.
We won't be able to delete flops that no one wants. Sixty minutes is short to see if a question is appreciated or rejected. It was some Wicki thing she posted, she may remember better than I do. My memory isn't so great even from day to day.
