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

Sorry for the lame description. These revisions show something a little strange:


There was no delete button in the flags list; I went to the question and clicked delete, and a blank error box appeared; I refreshed and tried twice more, and then opened it in a new tab and finally deleted it (it showed two previous votes at that time). An empty flag box also hung around for a while.

Do you think it would have anything to do with this?… – FDinoff Aug 25 '13 at 4:08
It is similar to… although that one is about undeleting questions. – Antony Aug 25 '13 at 4:11
Happened again here (though the revision history isn’t strange); seven votes stacked up, and the eighth deleted it. EDIT: Okay, now the revision history is strange. – Ryan O'Hara Aug 25 '13 at 4:12
Oh neat, it's the DoubleAA deletion bug on SO... – michaelb958 Aug 25 '13 at 4:12
If it’s the DoubleAA deletion bug, does that mean Community is going to undelete it a bunch? D: – Ryan O'Hara Aug 25 '13 at 4:17
@minitech *gulp* Community automatically undeleting spam. Oh joy. (Disclaimer: I can't see the post to tell if it's actually spam; I'm just looking at the screenshot in the question.) – michaelb958 Aug 25 '13 at 4:23
c-c-c-c-combo!!! – Asad Saeeduddin Aug 25 '13 at 4:24
Guess what. (Also, it disappeared from the flag queue before anyone handled the flag — this is bad. And I do not use bold italics lightly.) – Ryan O'Hara Aug 25 '13 at 4:26
Different kind of wrong – Ryan O'Hara Aug 25 '13 at 4:41
There's nothing wrong here, it's just the new rule of three engine. – Charles Aug 25 '13 at 5:20
This is probably the closest I'll ever get to becoming an MSO meme :) – Double AA Aug 25 '13 at 5:36
What’s up with the duplicate notice? There are no close votes and it doesn’t answer my question besides. – Ryan O'Hara Aug 25 '13 at 6:18
I'd assume it's related to the close-vote issue, minitech. A dev will come along in a little while and tie all of this together to one root cause... – Michael Petrotta Aug 25 '13 at 6:27
@MichaelPetrotta: Possibly, but in the meantime I have no clue where that post notice is coming from. Unless you meant that the count is wrong because of that bug. – Ryan O'Hara Aug 25 '13 at 6:28
@DoubleAA My deletion takes the cake. ^_^ Too bad it's a lie. (under 10k image) – animuson Aug 25 '13 at 15:18
