Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 keep a check on the flagged posts regularly to accept and reject the flags, though, one thing bugs me is the Delete Answer button, because, even after casting a vote, it doesn't disappear.

What happens is say my vote was the last one to cast a delete vote, so when I click it does get deleted, but clicking it again, castes an undesired undelete answer vote... Flagging the post does reduce the opacity, but deleting an answer doesn't.

I know I should ignore pressing it again, but for some reason if the message box fails to open, I click the delete again, and I get a box saying that your undelete vote has been recorded

If I've cast a delete vote and it's the third one which makes final delete, the post should be disappeared than and there.

If status by design says that a user can cast an undelete vote from the flagged posts que (Which I don't think it's a normal design), than atleast the text of the button should be changed to undelete answer

I would really like to know the reason for downvote :) as you don't agree with the feature request – Mr. Alien Feb 15 '14 at 12:21
Don't worry about DownVotes here on Meta. It just means people disagree with your suggestion. You proposed a feature request, so people will vote heavily (either way) as it could potentially affect a function on the site (good or bad - hence up/down votes) – James Feb 15 '14 at 13:22
FWIW, when a moderator deletes a post from the flags queue, it does change to an undelete button afterwards. – animuson Feb 15 '14 at 19:10
@James It's fine if people downvote :) am not here to gain reputation, but somethings are really worth mentioning if you don't like the suggestions.. it just helps things get better yea, I was uncomfortable with the button not disappearing so I thought lets put up on meta... – Mr. Alien Feb 16 '14 at 17:16
