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

Now that popular questions take more votes to delete, and now that we can determine how many deletion votes are required by hovering, I would like to ask for one further step.

In the 10k tools, we get an indication of how many deletion votes have been made, but we don't get an indication of how many are necessary for a question. I would like to not waste my time on questions which will never get deleted, and would like instead to focus my 5 votes where I can actually make a difference.

Please "promote" the information currently in the tooltip onto the 10k tools Delete page.

Starting with the next build, this tooltip will show up on the 10k tools count as well, for example:

"5 more vote(s) needed to delete this post"
