Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Having had a (hopefully) minor problem on Physics.SE, I asked for some advice and help from other moderators in the chatroom.

Alas, the user had deleted the content in question, so the moderators from other sites couldn't help, only Physics.SE mods and Stack Exchange team members were able to see the deleted post.

Is this use case a sufficiently compelling reason to grant community moderators the power to see deleted content on sites where they are not moderators and do not have 10k?

@Mark: Ah...I didn't find that one and could certainly live with it, and one of the comment there links to an even older question which is a reasonable duplicate for this. Time to close? – dmckee Nov 28 '11 at 20:43
I don't see how you being a moderator on another site is relevant in this case. – Paŭlo Ebermann Nov 28 '11 at 20:44
@dmckee I think all three are distinct and different requests, although they are all attempting to address the same problem (mods could use more privileges to advise each other cross-site): not like any of these requests have garnered a full response anyway :P – user149432 Nov 28 '11 at 20:47
