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

In the low quality posts queue, the "Delete" button changes to "Recommend deletion" when a 20k user runs out of delete votes.

However, it's still treated as a vote to delete, causing the "You have reached the maximum of n Deletion votes per day" error:

Recommend deletion causing a vote to delete error

It should work like it does for sub-20kers: move the post to the top of the queue for people who still have delete votes.

It is also slightly questionable if 20k users should be able to delete zero score answers here, which is not allowed in other places. – Bo Persson Aug 21 '12 at 10:37
I thought it didn't actually delete 0 scored posts. (at least last time I looked there were not delete votes getting attached and I still had some left) – Flexo Aug 21 '12 at 10:41
@BoPersson I agree: I feature requested something similar, but I don't think it's working as intended. In this case, the post was at -1: I just ran out of delete votes for the day. – user149432 Aug 21 '12 at 10:45
@Flexo It does register as a delete vote: if you go back and downvote the post, the delete vote shows up and you get the "you have already voted to delete this post" error if you try to vote to delete again. – user149432 Aug 21 '12 at 10:46
I think I'd rather have more delete votes. This new review system is so efficient that I can easily burn through all 30 of mine in under an hour. – Mysticial Aug 24 '12 at 2:54

Recommend delete will work correctly after running out of delete votes for the day. This will be fixed in the next build.
