Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

It would appear that deleting your own post doesn't actually do anything from the mobile site.

I just had a little mixup- I prematurely posted a question (by hitting return on my phone when editing the title, possible another issue of its own) but I stopped the page load, so it didn't appear that I had actually posted anything.

When I had finished typing the question (but hadn't posted it), I then noticed the premature question that I had accidentally posted, which had been down voted and closed. From the mobile site, I hit the delete button under the question content, as I wanted to delete it. It prompted me for confirmation, and I click yes, and the page refreshed. The question remained, but I assumed I was just voting like the people who closed my question. (The confirmation prompt actually says Vote too) I then went on to create a new question, with a near identical title to the premature one, and the correct body content.

I was then informed that I had posted an extended duplicate, and was told to edit the previous post. So I did just that, and tried deleting the duplicate I had just posted (from full site). To my suprise, the post was almost immediately removed...

Workaround: since the mobile site is suboptimal in other ways too, use the Full Site link at the bottom of the page. I've not looked back. – AndrewC Oct 21 '12 at 8:43
