Today I bring to You a new forum feature request.
So, I used to have a glitchy phone, which resulted in it clicking on the trash can to delete a post. That’s not a problem today, since I have a good phone that does not “ghost” click on anything.
However, I still run into some issues with it and I’ve seen many other people do so too. Some of us, including me, misclick and delete our posts, only to go into trouble by reverting them again.
Now, yes, the revertion process is easy. Just click and there’s Your post. However, 2 more issues. The first is when You click to bring back Your post too quickly, it pops up a message box with some sort of error. “Quickly” in this case is like 5 seconds. I don’t believe this is a glitch, just implemented to stop unusual post deleting spanmers.
The other issue is, when You’ve edited something and then delete Your post. After reverting the deletion, Your recent edit is gone (about 1 minute for me) and You cannot find it by clicking the pencil and viewing the post’s edit history. You have to go into trouble by editing it again.
So, could we possibly get an “abandon post” button just like we do when we’re composing or editing one? (picture below)
