The tiny little x box at the end of a comment used to delete that comment on my phone is extremely hard to press. Have not been able to as I am restricted to only my small smartphone screen and big farm boy fingers. Would there be any chance of like at the end of a question using a text link to effect the deletion?

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for active researchers, academics and students of physics.

Sorry I again did not clarify I have theluttle x box it is three but I can not physically press the x even if I zoom all the way in my finger is to wide or whatnot then maybe increase the size of the x box relative to the small tesxt – Argus May 13 '12 at 19:31

Agreed as I can easily minipulate the text links already in use this would make the most sense to me personalty. Of course makeing it bigger well how much biggerand all that jazz. So a text link would be less objective as to a "good" size. – Argus May 13 '12 at 19:44
Also, the dropdown notification also uses an x box as I have to go view my profile to click these can these also be changed to fit the other standard of text based button interactions. The x looks cool but is functionally difficult to use. – Argus May 13 '12 at 19:47
It takes about 10 clicks to vote on a comment, let alone try to delete my own! – Matt May 13 '12 at 19:48
Possible fix without changing drop down notifications. Related… – Argus May 13 '12 at 19:51
Does your smartphone allow you to zoom in on the area to make the target bigger? I always end up having to do that on the IPad when voting on comments. – Martin Smith May 26 '12 at 10:03
Yes, fully zoom in and the x-box is still too small full-site and mobile versions. – Argus May 27 '12 at 0:59
@MartinSmith: I have also tried useing different browsers and magnifying applications – Argus May 27 '12 at 18:43
I appreciate your comments and suggestions. Thank You. – Argus Jun 2 '12 at 2:02

As a work-around, the mobile theme now has "delete" links on comments.

Testing this feature... It works, but its somewhat ugly. Oh well, nothings perfect! – Richard J. Ross III Mar 19 '13 at 5:35
