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 gave and then deleted this answer, but when I click the revisions list link, I get a page not found error.

Why can't I see the revision history of my own answer?

UPDATE: I originally asked this question as a <10k user. Now that I'm over 10k, the latter link works, but I still don't think this is proper behaviour: a user who deleted their own post should be able to see that page.

hmm. i'd expect you should be able to. you can access the edit link, can't you? – quack quixote Apr 12 '10 at 7:08
@quack: Yes, and the combo box of revisions on that screen works, too. I just can't see the screen with the diff'd revisions. – Jon Seigel Apr 12 '10 at 12:37

Indeed -- this should be possible, since owners can see their own deleted answers.

Revisions to deleted answers are now visible, provided the post has an owner, the post is an answer, and you are the owner.
