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

Locked questions are supposed to be locked, that is they can't be voted, posted on, commented on or flagged. However, I noticed that while all these links are correctly absent from the normal view for a historically locked question, I can still see the flag link when viewing it from mobile.

Go to Fundamental difference between Hashing and Encryption algorithms from a mobile (or click the mobile link at the footer when viewing it), the flag link is visible and functional:

When I attempt to submit a flag, I get no feedback ("Thanks we'll look at it!" or "There was a problem"), and the flag isn't submitted (I don't see it in my flag history, and a mod doesn't see it there).

In addition, users with enough reputation can see the "edit tags" when hovering the tags:

When clicking "Save Tag Edits" it brings red error "Locked questions cannot be edited".

I can see it from PC too. – hjpotter92 Jun 9 '13 at 13:18
@hjpotter92: Changed to a different locked question – Madara Uchiha Jun 9 '13 at 13:20
Also worth to mention we see "edit tags" when hovering the line of tags and when clicking "Save Tag Edits" it brings red error "Locked questions cannot be edited". Think I'll add screenshots, do you mind? – Shadow Wizard Jun 9 '13 at 13:30

status-norepro here, on iOS. – Undo Jun 9 '13 at 13:38
@Undo you probably browse the full version. Do you see "mobile" in the footer? – Shadow Wizard Jun 9 '13 at 13:40
@Sha I'm on iPad, and I'm on the full version, yes. Woops. Testing from mobile... Yes, reproed on Mobile, iOS 6. – Undo Jun 9 '13 at 13:41

This has been fixed and will be available in the next deployment (rev 2245 on meta and rev 1606 on the network).
