Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

The user's account is still deleted on that StackExchange site, but upon deletion the user is directed to the "page not found" page. The user should likely be redirected to the home page of that StackExchange site instead. It hurts nothing functionally, but just to improve the user interaction it's probably best to change this.

I noticed this first on the Unix & Linux Site then I tested it on another site (Personal Finance) and got the same result.

So when clicking the "delete" button in your profile it sends you to page not found, not the home page? – Ben Brocka Nov 19 '12 at 21:33
@BenBrocka , Correct. – golmschenk Nov 19 '12 at 21:36
Gotcha. Yeah, that's a buggy workflow – Ben Brocka Nov 19 '12 at 22:52

The next build will redirect users to a site's home page after self-deletion, rather than just reloading.
