Delete Permission Problem

I am trying to deny the delete permission for a folder so users do not accidentally delete all the contents of the folder.  But I still want them to be able to read, write, create, and delete sub folders and files.

When I deny the delete permission under special permissions, it does not do anything.  I am still able to delete the main folder.

I never did that, but when I changed other permissions they took effect right away without having to log off and log back in.
