Good idea about self-correction. They call it Grace period. Read here for details: https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/21789/915532

Logs will show it as "Edit removed during grace period".

Long past its use-by date.

Stack Exchange is hobbled by a one-two punch of gamification and mismoderation antipractices, which combine to create a site of consistently outdated answers. By locking core functionality behind a pointwall, they promote point-seeking behaviors that encourage creating the most popular answer, instead of collaborating on the most correct answer. High-point answers rise to the top like curdles in milk, even if the 'answer' is years or decades out of date, because commenting on high-point answers is one of the only reliable ways to get the upvotes you need to unlock core functionality. Moderation closes questions as 'opinion-based' when a simple yes-no question has been asked. Users with more points than you can alter the text of your question (!!!) to one they feel is more 'factual', resulting in people responding to a question you didn't ask and don't need answers to. Legitimate questions can be indefinitely locked without appeal, and any rephrasing of the question will also be locked because they answered you (by locking your question). No ignore functionality means you're SOL if you have issues with problematic users, as well.

Yet another horrible idea with bans because people ask unpopular questions according to stack exchange voters! Not according to view stats! Not according to search stats!

Users can't change their mind with Stack Exchange: "You last voted on this answer 1 hour ago. Your vote is now locked in unless this answer is edited."

This will likely cause unwanted complications because most humans do mistakes all the time. This will also cause problems when circumstances will change.

Tags are very dead and nearly empty because of stupid and unneeded bureaucracy.

Their so called community constantly discards valid questions which are not found anywhere else with variety of pointless excuses not found elsewhere as well.
