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

When I delete an answer, I still see it and have the option to undelete it. Can anybody else see my deleted answer?

If they have the link. And otherwise moderators can. – Bart Jul 30 '13 at 19:26
@Bart: Answers don't require the link, questions do. Answers can be viewed "normally" when you view the questions, for 10k+ users. – Madara Uchiha Jul 30 '13 at 19:31
D'oh, true @MadaraUchiha. Somehow that converted to "questions" in my head. .... Coffee it is... – Bart Jul 30 '13 at 19:33
