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?

@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.
