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

I have an inbox item but it looks like the person who answered the question and made response comment deleted his answer. Is there a way to see his/her id? I can see only part of the text in my inbox. Can I see it completely?

I wanted to let the poster know that his answer was working! Not sure why he deleted it.

Here's what I see in my inbox:

comment on Delete consecutives values in ArrayList of Int

"Give it a try... That's called twice because I'm already at the beginning of the next ran..." on Delete consecutives values in ArrayList of Int

The answer and comment are deleted - why would you need to know the ID of the commenter, now that the post they commented on is gone? – Oded May 13 '13 at 12:08

10k+ users can see deleted posts, including comments; visiting the link you shared I see:

@tgkprog: Give it a try... That's called twice because I'm already at the beginning of the next range at that time: e.g.: with [1, 2, 3, 5, 6], the iterator is already at "5" when it starts to look back, and it needs to remove "2", not "3". According to the javadoc, the first call to previous returns "5" again. – Costi Ciudatu.

The poster of that answer unfortunately did not comment anywhere on your question, so you'd have to find another post of his to be able to reply to him or invite him to a chat.
