Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

If you entered a message in chat and then noticed you want to word it differently or add something, but you take too long to edit it, you will receive a message from SO that tells you

It's too late to edit this message.

It would be better if you don't remove the text from the edit window in that case, so that the text isn't lost.
