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

On this question I put a helpful comment linking to Meta's faq about accepting answers. I went to look this morning and the comment is no where to be found though

The comments part of the question where I posted it: alt text

but in my recent activity: alt text

As an aside: at most one @reply will result in a notification, but the person you're commenting on will always be notified, so does not need a @reply. Hence, dropping the @ before @davit ensures @Darin will yield a notification for Darin. All fun details at How do comment replies work? – Arjan May 15 '10 at 20:39

The comment is there – the only thing missing is the "get more comments" link. That occurs sometimes, because the comment count on posts is denormalized. When the wrong number of comments is recorded for the post, it can happen (like in this case) that you don't get the link to retrieve more comments, even though there are such.

IIRC, there's a cron job running to look through things like this, so it will probably be fixed within 24 hours.

That is a trainwreck of a question, so I just deleted it to clean up.

so @balpha is wrong? You actually did delete it? – Earlz May 16 '10 at 9:25
@earlz I deleted the question much later. your comment was not deleted, it's still there if you have 10k rep to see the deleted question. – Jeff Atwood May 16 '10 at 10:35
Ah ok, so balpha was right then but the question is now deleted so it doesn't matter anyway – Earlz May 16 '10 at 17:56
