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'm fairly certain we recently got this ability; this post was marked status-completed last month, and two other moderators confirmed for me that I'm not going crazy and we used to be able to do this. But those moderators (and myself as well) seem to have lost this ability now. I no longer see the "add comment" option on deleted posts on the site I moderate. Is this a mistaken casualty of the close options update, or is something else going on?

ThisFeatureWasImplemented != YouNotGoingCrazy, just FYI ;) – Andrew Barber Jun 26 '13 at 0:55
@WendiKidd I lied--I can't do it anymore either (Meta or Main), but it was working two days ago. – simchona Jun 26 '13 at 2:33
@simchona Aww, and here I was thinking we'd narrowed it down some! :) Yeah, I did it a few days ago too; it seems to have broken since the new close reasons were implemented network-wide. Could be a coincidence I suppose, but perhaps not :) – WendiKidd Jun 26 '13 at 2:34
This went away for me too. It was working on C.SE at least 2 days ago, as of today it is not. – Caleb Jun 26 '13 at 8:14

Wendi - quite right, with all the close changes we had a regression here :(

Fixed in the next build.
