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

Sorry if this has already been discussed, but I've searched first and can't find any information about it.

I asked a question over on SO, and one of the answers was deleted. I then figured I'd just delete the comment I made on that answer (as I sound a little dumb), however nothing happens:

  • I click delete
  • Click OK on when asked if I'm sure I'd really like to delete the comment
  • Then it appears to do an AJAX call, but then nothing else happens.

This is using FF, but the same nothingness happens on IE as well.

My magic 8 ball says this won't get fixed, but I agree it should work. – user27414 Nov 15 '10 at 16:58
I was going to say that it works for me, but then it turns out that I can also upvote comments on deleted posts. So never mind. – mmyers Nov 15 '10 at 17:45
I was about to mention that if you really wanted to, you could flag a moderator down since they don't concern themselves with limits on deleted questions... but... – Grace Note Nov 15 '10 at 17:46
I think this should work. Or the delete button shouldn't be there, or at the very least it should give some user feedback as to why it doesn't work. – GenericTypeTea Nov 18 '10 at 9:33

You are now able to delete your comments on a deleted post, provided you have enough rep to see the deleted post.

This fix will be deployed tonight.
