This is what I expected, but…

Right now, if you delete something, the design don’t change.
Is this ok?

This post hasn’t been deleted yet – the (non-staff) poster has just requested deletion. As the message says, the post will be deleted automatically in 24 hours – that’s when it will disappear for non-staff members and turn red for staff members :slight_smile:


I knew what it is.

I only saying that the colour of the message did not change when it was marked as deleted :neutral_face:

What I can say: This has been the case for many years now, so I assume this is intended behavior :slight_smile:


I don’t think so.

I was testing discobot too many times, and when I delete the messages from its tutorial, the colour changes (highlighting thing).

Now that’s did not occurs.

You may have deleted the response as a user. The answer will be deleted after a certain time. If the question is deleted immediately (by the administration), then its color changes.

There is an issue of the deletion color not appearing in some cases when deleting items as staff.
