I found some older topcis on this. From 2014/2025 and didn’t want to bump those. Running latest fetes-passed in a docker install as per guidelines.
I was testing around and deleted (as admin) some posts by a test user and the discobot. A few days later these posts are still there. Nobody had flagged them so that can’t be the reason they’re not being deleted.
Are only posts deleted by the user gone after 24 hours? Also some posts of myself I deleted as admin don’t get the (post withdrawn) and also still appear in the lists after 24 hours.
Is this by design or am I doing something wrong here? I can still undelete them fine.
The deleted posts don’t bother me at all, just want to know why they’re not being deleted by the system after 24 hours.
If I change the ownership to a test user without any mod/admin rights and change the 24 hours to delete instantly deleting them as test user works. But it doesn’t work for admin/mod deletes. So I guess this is by design?
Oh, they only delete for the user itself, can still see the “instantly” deleted posts as admin… Confusing.
