Under-rated feature on Masto:
The "Delete & re-draft" button
It does exactly what's on the label
It deletes your post, but puts it back in the editor so you can fix that *one* thing easily
@bgcarlisle Wait what seriously? Is this like an alternative to the Edit button or an addition to it?
@giuseppebilotta @bgcarlisle an alternative. It's our way of editing.
@eloisa @giuseppebilotta @bgcarlisle
Edit feature is rolling out in the next few releases.
But this was a placeholder for like 4-5 years now.
@maloki @giuseppebilotta @bgcarlisle oh, wow! We're gonna have editing powers? Not sure how I feel about it, actually. :s
@eloisa @giuseppebilotta @bgcarlisle I hope it will let us see the edit history, but I've obviously not been following the development too closely.
@maloki @eloisa @bgcarlisle I agree that keeping a way to show the old post is essential to avoid abuses of the edit feature (e.g. to create fake drama).
@maloki @eloisa @giuseppebilotta @bgcarlisle I remember seeing in some github thread that it would, but I could have been dreaming. The Activity Pub should display edit history.
@weirdwriter @maloki @eloisa @bgcarlisle This https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/17370 is where they are discussing some of the UX aspects of the feature.
