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

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?

you will get other useful answers if you ask this on Stackoverflow – Ian Ringrose Sep 23 '10 at 9:15
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
