Recently people put great effort in deleting content they feel it should not stay.
This already led to discussions here to better find criteria when a post should be deleted or not:
- Community moderation: What are our guidelines to delete posts?
- What posts should be flagged for deletion?
Sadly contributions to these discussions are sparse.
Now it appears that people vote to delete a post very rapidly which leads to a deletion of content within hours. This often leaves the OP no time to edit or improve their post. New users may not find this of great help in getting around with our site's standards. In addition if nothing but down-votes, close-votes and deletes happened to them they may not come back.
When would be the right time to delete poor content?
