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

According to the most recent responses I have 3 answers to a question. But when I go to the actual question there are only 2.

On the most recent responses I can see the first 2 lines of an answer from Marc Gravell, it would be very nice to see the rest. Feels like watching a film on VHS, where they say "the killer is " and then you run out of tape.

That rascal Marc deleted his answer, and as devinb notes, this'll kinda screw with the recent activity. Don't worry about it - most likely, Marc felt the existing answers better answered the question.

If a user adds an answer and then deletes it, it will appear in your "recent events" but will not appear on your question anymore.

Add a comment to the question next time. – Brad Gilbert Aug 26 '09 at 16:04
Why? There is no concensus on whether dupe links should be comments or answers (as has been discussed before). I think answers are where they should be put, since that will bring more peoples attention to the dupe. – Lance Roberts Aug 26 '09 at 16:21
