What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

Right now, as soon a question is closed the delete link shows up, even though it won't be eligible for deletion for 2 days yet. This link should be hidden until the 2 day wait is over.

Wouldn't that lead to questions like: Why can't I delete closed questions? –  Ladybug Killer Oct 31 '09 at 17:55

@John: I don't think it would be that big of a deal since only 10K+ rep users can vote to delete. I would hope that by then they'd know better. –  squillman Oct 31 '09 at 19:05

There's a delay? (evil grin...) –  Marc Gravell Oct 31 '09 at 20:59

No, we don't believe in the philosophy of hiding things.

This is the same reason many (including Joel) rant about the "why is this menu dimmed / inactive / not available" topic.

We show it to you, then explain what it takes to do it.
