Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

I have deleted an answer I gave (the link is for 10k users) on Drupal Answers because it was wrong. Looking at the admin history, I find the following entry:

Moderator deletes flag votes - from post id = 29129, count = 0

I didn't flag it; I simply deleted the answer with the "delete" button, as every user would have done.

I also checked if there were flags raised for the answer, just to be sure I missed one, but it doesn't seem the case; the moderator's menu for that answer doesn't report any flag.

What does that entry mean? Why is it added to the admin history, if deleting own answers is not a prerogative of moderators?

That entry appears ALL THE TIME. I see it at least once for every close or deletion. I don't know what it means but I hate it. – Ben Brocka May 10 '12 at 19:45
