What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

For my original question I've found the answer here. However, in the FAQ, I think it would be useful to indicate explicitly that one cannot delete messages older than 120s. So, I propose the modification of this part: http://chat.stackexchange.com/faq#talk with the following:

You have 120 seconds to edit or delete your messages.

I propose:

You have 120 seconds to edit your messages. After this 2 minute window, messages can neither be edited nor deleted - except by moderators.

+1 for being more informative. – dezso Sep 3 '12 at 21:41
Seems too redundant. The entire first sentence is covered by the second sentence. I'd say just use the second sentence. – animuson Sep 4 '12 at 0:20
Redundancy is sometimes worth it. I'd add the OP's "or delete" to the first sentence here too. – Mark Hurd Sep 4 '12 at 6:27
I agree with @Mark - this is a FAQ, not a [your favourite programming language] function :) – dezso Sep 4 '12 at 6:30
