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

Hide voting arrows on deleted posts

Some locked posts don't have upvote or downvote buttons since you can't vote on them.

Wouldn't it be a logical step to remove the upvote and downvote buttons from deleted posts as well since you can't vote on them too?

Just a minor improvement in user-experience.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I don't think this is necessary. I like to see whether or not I've voted on a deleted post. But on the other hand, historically locked posts don't have the buttons either... – Mysticial Nov 16 '12 at 20:19
Correction: only historically locked questions don't have the voting buttons. Other locks, such as content disputes, do not remove the voting buttons. – animuson Nov 16 '12 at 20:20

That or somehow show that they are disabled.

Making a user click on something just to show them that they cannot do that is just poor form.
