Whenever I do a question and it receives a large number of downvotes, I usually tend to delete them instead of editing, as I am nervous about losing my reputation. From my past experience with Stack Exchange, I always knew that deleting questions can get your reputation back.
Oddly enough, when you delete a question in hopes of earning your reputation back, it will take a long period of time to earn it back. Earning your reputation can take about several minutes to half an hour.
Should this issue with having to wait a long amount of time be fixed?
