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

This seems to be something that keeps coming up meta however as I have the issue now and all the other tickets on here are marked as complete I thought I would raise it again.

Deletions are now reflected* in the inbox.

There is, of course, a natural race condition; wherein you load a page with a notice right before the originating user deletes the answer/comment. That's not going to be addressed.

As for edits, we're unlikely to every reflect those in the inbox. Its a lot of trouble (technically), when you're almost always just going to go and read the post/comment.

*This is "going forward," old items that are in the inbox that correspond to deleted posts or comments will remain. At least for the time being.

I had read this, however it still shows in the inbox many hours after and with refresh I understand the race condition would only happen if it shows in the list before it is deleted and I had not refreshed. – John Jul 6 '11 at 11:09
Unless I have mistaken the meaning, it does actually say: "old items that are in the inbox that correspond to deleted posts or comments will remain." – Thursagen Jul 6 '11 at 11:11
Because that was prefixed with going forward I though that "old" referred to the time before the answer/fix was applied. I could be wrong though – John Jul 6 '11 at 12:00
I don't know... makes some sense. – Thursagen Jul 6 '11 at 12:04
