I just found out that I can see all my deleted answers on my profile page here on Meta.

Excited about the change, I visited another user's profile page. I can see his deleted questions and answers as well:

Is this a new feature or is it a bug? (Please let it be a feature.)

    Is this only on meta right now? I can't see any of my deleted answers on SO. – Mysticial Feb 12 '13 at 2:09
  • Seems to be Meta only. I can't see anything on SO or SU. – Dennis Feb 12 '13 at 2:10

    +1 for the example account you picked to link :p – Andrew Barber Feb 12 '13 at 2:10
  • Maybe this affect 10k+ users only? – juergen d Feb 12 '13 at 2:10

    @AndrewBarber: Well, I had to pick an account with deleted posts. It was the first that came to my mind... – Dennis Feb 12 '13 at 2:11

    I can't see what you're seeing in your screenshot at that link you posted. – Austin Powers Feb 12 '13 at 2:11
  • @Yannis You seem sure of this. Did someone in the TL confirm this as a bug? – Mysticial Feb 12 '13 at 2:12
  • @juergend: That would make sense for others' deleted posts. – Dennis Feb 12 '13 at 2:12

    Quick! Let's find all the deleted posts while we still can! – animuson Feb 12 '13 at 2:13
  • @animuson See if isdeleted:1 works in the search. – Mysticial Feb 12 '13 at 2:14

The user pages have different visibility on deleted content than most other places - I misused an existing property for checking a user's ability to see deleted content and this was the result.

It should be fixed now.

    Please unfix it, pretty please. – Lance Roberts Feb 12 '13 at 2:31
  • Once again shrouded in mystery :) – Jarrod Dixon Feb 12 '13 at 2:31
