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

Here's something which I noticed first in SuperUser yesterday but dismissed it, this time I saw this in SO. I logged onto SO today, and there was a notification - "You have 2 new answers and 1 new notification". alt text

I clicked on the link, it shows me there is only 1 answer and 1 comment.

The same happened yesterday on SuperUser as well

I see this every time I log into StackOverflow and have new answers. Whenever I have e.g. 3 new answers, it always tells me I have 4. – Joe White Apr 16 '10 at 14:30

Most likely an answer was deleted by its owner before you clicked on the link. Once you reach 10K pts, you will be able to see deleted answers.

Hm, hadn't thought of that aspect. – Sathya Feb 11 '10 at 12:21
However, you don't see deleted answers in the notifications. – ChrisF Feb 11 '10 at 12:25
