Ughhh I accidentally made edits and saved unintended changes to a question, and now I can't see the older versions. Basically deleted stuff and now it's gone.

Is there any way to retrieve older versions of a question?

Here is the question: Improving observable persistent queue mini-library

As you can see I accidentally deleted one of the two list items.

    \$\begingroup\$ That depends, how shortly after posting did you edit it? \$\endgroup\$ – 410_Gone Jan 29 '17 at 0:55
  • \$\begingroup\$ it's been about 5 or 10 minutes max since I edited it \$\endgroup\$ – Alexander Mills Jan 29 '17 at 0:56
  • \$\begingroup\$ I rolled that question back for you. In the future, you can click 'revisions' at the bottom of your post to see older versions. \$\endgroup\$ – 410_Gone Jan 29 '17 at 0:57
  • \$\begingroup\$ ahh, thanks, I didn't know about that - is revisions available on all SE sites? \$\endgroup\$ – Alexander Mills Jan 29 '17 at 0:58
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes, but you only have the 'rollback' option if you have edit privileges. \$\endgroup\$ – 410_Gone Jan 29 '17 at 0:58
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yeah I am not seeing this revisions button at the bottom of my post/question \$\endgroup\$ – Alexander Mills Jan 29 '17 at 0:59

  • \$\begingroup\$ What @DainIIIronfoot said. Click 'edited .... ago' then you should see the 'revisions' page. My wording was mistaken. \$\endgroup\$ – 410_Gone Jan 29 '17 at 1:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ oh np thanks let me try that \$\endgroup\$ – Alexander Mills Jan 29 '17 at 1:03

To view past revisions of a question or answer, click on the link below the post that looks something like "edited n hours ago" or "edited Dec 3 '16".

Note that if multiple edits are made by the same person in quick succession, only the last edit within a five-minute interval will be recorded as a revision.
