Occasionally, I write a question, then decide it's not good enough - not ready for publication. So, what I want to do is: Delete it, edit it, then undelete it when I'm done. Unfortunately - SO won't let me edit my deleted message.

I hereby ask that editing of deleted posts by the author be enabled.

(Not sure if to classify this as a bug or a feature-request.)

    Your experience will be improved if you wait to submit a question until it’s higher quality before the initial submission.

    @Ramhound: That's not a helpful comment.
