♦ moderators have the ability to redact posts, e.g. to hide email addresses that were published by accident. There is an experimental feature to automatically apply redactions to subsequent revisions, which seems to work nicely, except that it wants me to mention that to a person who no longer worked for Stack Exchange at the time of this bug report (he's almost back again, welcome!)

    I wouldn't be surprised if his former mailbox is filled with bug reports about this feature ;)

The text in question has been removed (as has the text declaring the feature to be experimental - I think that it has been around long enough to earn defacto no-longer-an-experiment status).

Contact balpha if broken?
No longer the case

balpha coming back?
that is so awesome, we’re stoked!
still, don’t contact him

  • I haven't verified it but it will probably take a while before I have to make a redaction, so I'll take your word for it :)

    @Glorfindel the build went out on 18 Oct 21 15:18 UTC. Though I also haven't verified on prod (honestly, I never even saw this page before you pointed it out). Commented Oct 19, 2021 at 8:42
