As a follow up question to this MeTa
, isn't it kind of bad form for another user to re-post a deleted FPP before the original poster has a chance to revise and, uh, re-post?
It seems to me that giving a person whose post has been deleted the opportunity to correct and re-post their FPP would help make the site a little more diverse, and, arguably, better. Especially since the original post
was made by someone with much, much fewer FPPs than the subsequent user.
How are users supposed to learn "how the site works" if they aren't given the chance to do so? Reading successful FPPs is not the same as figuring out how to craft one yourself.
Maybe gman independently decided to make a FPP on the same story, but I didn't get that impression.
