I was just testing out the reopen functionality on a question which a Mod deleted (so I know I cannot reopen it) (How can I upload file from internet (i have file url) using ajaxupload plugin? [closed]).

When I clicked on reopen I got the confirmation box as usual:

After I clicked ok, this showed on the page:


I understand that it is a VOTE, a vote to reopen a question (which I know cannot be reopened because it is deleted)

BUT I am suggesting better wording:

This post has been deleted. Deleted posts cannot be reopened

The word reopened describes what I was trying to do. I was not trying to vote on the question, I was trying to reopen it.

hmm the tooltip for "undelete" reads vote to restore this post but wait... I thought I couldn't vote on deleted posts – Some Helpful Commenter Sep 15 '11 at 22:45
@Conrad -- I just added the confirmation box for reopen -- it mentions nothing about about voting. Whereas the undelete confirmation does. – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Sep 15 '11 at 22:48
