Meta Question

Mods, how long do you wait for me to edit my question before deleting it altogether?

Asked by Mimishu1995 (8311 points ) April 12th, 2014

Suppose that the mods team put back a question of an @jelly for editing. @jelly takes too long to edit it (or has ignored the editing message and left the question?), will the mods wait, or delete it after some time?

Is there a time limit for each modded question? If so, then how long is it?

Once a question is returned to a user for editing, the mods are unable to do anything else with it. It will stay under that user’s control until they either edit it or abandon it.

Once a users makes the required corrections and resubmits it, the mods have to approve it before it will post on the site again. Sometimes we have to send questions back again because they still have mistakes. How long this takes may vary depending on if a mod is around at the time of the re-submission or not.

@Mimishu1995 With you it’s 3.5 seconds. It’s just because you smell

@Seaofclouds Thanks. It’s nice to know I don’t have to race against time.

@Mimishu1995 Are you going to kick my ass?

You don’t have to race against time, but the longer you wait, the further down on the list of questions your question will appear. This is because once a question is re-submitted and approved, it goes back to it’s original place in the questions. It does not go back to the top as a new question. So, if you wait a month, your question will be buried beneath all the questions asked since then and less likely to get answers.

@Seaofclouds Err… race against time, one way or another…

@Adirondackwannabe…. no <shivering>

@Adirondackwannabe Not sure what you mean by “kick your ass”. And a bit scared…

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Sweetie, I meant you could give me crap for what I said, without any fear of what I would do. Do you think I could hurt anyone?

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Is that so…

Hah, it seems that I misinterpreted your intention :)

Now that I look back at your responses earlier in a different angel, it sounds fun :)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Yeah, Don’t worry about me, I’m pretty mellow usually. Although I’m all over the fun.

@Dog Does the can of beer sound louder when you open it watching a sunset or a sunrise?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Dog @Mimishu1995 Your both going to the pound.

Dog's avatar

@Cruiser Not sure- lets do a study. (Maybe we can get the government to pay for it!)

Dog's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Awwww.. I don’t like the pound. No beer or tennis balls.

Mimishu1995's avatar

I’m here everyone :)

I was not arguing with him @Dog, I was just afraid if his words meant something dark :/ ~

Anyway things have been resolved now. Where’s my beer???? And where to sit???

Dog's avatar
