I read elsewhere from another Medium author that it’s not unacceptable if you delete a story, but republish it ONLY if you have done enough editing that would really make it a new post. That may be a challenge to manage. However, this rule is a good one. It provides more opportunity for those of us who may only publish 2–4 times per month, but do longer form articles, or for those of us for whom writing is not our full-time gig. Writers who republish their same work across the platform do a disservice to newer or less frequen writers.
