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

While reviewing flags in the 10k tools, you sometimes see a "Delete Answer" or "Delete Question" button next to the "Flag or disagree..." button.

Normally if you click the button, you cast a delete vote. But if the post already has 3 votes and is deleted, you can still click the button, but it then cast an undelete vote. And this is probably not the requested action.

So I think it should be better to ignore extra delete votes, because there are other channels to cast undelete votes.

This drives me crazy. It does not update into the deleted state, so you vote again and reverse yourself. A vote to delete should NEVER silently convert to a vote to undelete. It's a gnarly old bug. – tchrist Jan 12 '14 at 5:05
Nice to see you after a long time. :) – hims056 Feb 28 '14 at 11:00

This is not the patch you are looking for. I think this should be addressed though.
