I recently posted a new question on Android Enthusiasts using the official StackExchange app for Android. Right after posting the question, the app said that my question is not available.

The question is not available, it may have been deleted.

Deleted? Already?...

Then I navigated to my user name to see my recent activity. There it was! I could see the question I just posted. But if I tapped on the link to try to open it, the app kept complaining about my question not being available.

The question is not available, it may have been deleted.

But 7 minutes after posting the question, I could see my question. Here are some screenshots that showcase this issue.

This is not the first time this happens. This appears to be more or less normal behavior of the app. I don't use the StackExchange app very often to post questions. But I had exactly the same message come up when I posted a question a few months ago (and some app version numbers earlier).

This is not a major issue, but you should try to address this nevertheless. It's a small bug, but addressing it might imply much bigger changes... which might explain why it's still present... I don't really know, I'm guessing. I just thought I would let you know about it, in case you are not aware of it.

For the record, the phone is Galaxy S4 Plus (GT-I9506) running Android 4.4.2. Version number of the app is 1.0.50.

  • I'm pretty sure it is due to this answer from Kasra. – Steven V Sep 25 '14 at 12:59
  • The wording in that error message is a bit different. But yeah, it looks like the same issue. The answer you linked to is dated Aug 19 this year. I have been seeing this issue long before that. As I suspected, it appears to be a deeply rooted problem, related to the database setup. Let's just hope it will be sorted out in the coming updates. – Samir Sep 25 '14 at 17:05
  • Issue is still present – Franck Dernoncourt Jul 2 '15 at 14:26
  • I thought they had this sorted out already. I honestly haven't used the mobile app to post a question recently. I mostly use a computer for that, and the mobile app for getting notifications and posting comments. What version of the app are you using? I think I saw some mention about this in the app description a few updates back. But apparently, there is no changelog for the mobile app. – Samir Jul 2 '15 at 14:43
