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.

I noticed that in Stack Overflow (and sister) websites, after creating a new question if you edit it within some defined amount of time it won't create a new revision.

I'm developing an application which requires detecting and filtering out duplicate events within some defined time gap. But I couldn't agree on any "ideal" value for this time gap for which two same events will be considered duplicate.

So, I was wondering (in StackExchange websites), what is the time gap within which if a newly created question is edited, it doesn't create a new revision?

Well, I thought it belonged to meta because it was a question about StackOverflow's functionality. Will need someone with "super cow powers" to migrate it to Stack Overflow. – Vikrant Chaudhary Sep 27 '10 at 17:32
