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

Some of the headers for the table shown in the "Admin Summary" page have a tooltip, but there are headers without a tooltip, or without a tooltip that explains exactly its meaning.


  • Cmnts deleted: Does this field include the comments created from the moderator, and then deleted? Does it include the comments deleted when deleting a post?
  • Post deleted: Does this include the posts created from the moderator?
  • Post closed: Does this include the questions asked from the moderator? Are questions the moderator created, and that could have been deleted if the OP was not a moderator included (i.e. a question without up-voted answers)?
  • Meta Posts: What are the numbers shown in that column?

The "Meta Posts" header has a tooltip, but it doesn't say much, compared with the one for the "Cmnts deleted" header.

As a side note, some of the tooltips like on comments created just repeat the number you're hovering over. Useless! – Ben Brocka May 4 '12 at 19:50
@BenBrocka Yeah, tooltips on numbers should totally spell out the number in words: two hundred or six thousand, seven hundred and ninety-two – Cody Gray May 5 '12 at 7:34
@TheEstablishment no, they should spell the number out in braille. That's how accessibility works, right? – Ben Brocka May 6 '12 at 17:00
