Delete by accident

    It would be a nice if delete had a confirm option/dialog – I just accidentally was moving the mouse pointer across the screen and it tapped on delete on a post…

      This feature would be nice. I have accidently deleted more than one answer/comment by my finger accidentally hitting the delete button rather than the edit.

        If you do it immediately, Control-Z can undo your last action, which is handy when you aren’t sure exactly what that action was, but it made stuff vanish. I use it all the time!

          Ctrl-Z works fantastic for edit fields and in most desktop applications – I wonder if it would work on this…

          edit – too bad, it doesn’t.  I though of trying to hit refresh when I saw it happen, but I suspect once the request has gone up to the server there is probably no bringing it back at that point.

          A quick “Are you sure you want to delete this?” confirmation dialog would be good if it could be added.

            I’m not sure if that’s possible, but it’s a good idea, and I’ll see if it can be made to work.  🙂
