Thanks for the responses guys, just got a notification email for those and I can see a dozen of messages posted since then. I am struggling to move from Steam to here cause of the lack of notifications (...and the fact that I spend too much of my life there).

My response in the Steam Lestrades group to the cancel button topic was:

There was a debate back then as many users were leaving those opened for several days sometimes forgetting about them. The auto-cancel is nice to have in itself and has nothing to do with my point.
"also keeping post data across browser sessions." Sorry I have no clue what you're talking about. I would have to install a specific add-on ? I have the same behavior on Edge/IE/Chrome here.
If I'm the only one requesting this to be available (knowing that it also helps stalking other traders activity !), then yeah let's forget it I guess.

That's swift. If you see that the offer was sent, giving 5-10 seconds to the user for a chance to cancel seems the best idea!
2. It's not very informative. I mean, look how Milouze was puzzled by the lack of a "Cancel" button when editing an offer, feeling he just reached an impasse. Now add a button with a countdown timer like you have to defuse a bomb... If I were a newbie, that would scare me the first time I see it ("What? What did I do? Do I have to wait? Is something bad going to happen when it reaches zero?") :lol:
Agreed. UX design should be focused on keeping things simple; functionality like this that complicates the interaction and only exists for a few seconds is bad in my opinion.
