On this closed question, I see no delete link even though I have 20k rep. Have things changed to hide the delete link if I'm out of delete votes (which I'm not sure that I am)? Or is the migrated status of this question gumming something up?

That question was migrated from Programmers. Closing it as "too localized" rejected the migration, which sent it back to Programmers and locked the question here. It will get automatically deleted in a month.

This ends up looking weird because we can only show two banners below the question, so the fact that it's locked doesn't turn up unless you look in the revision history. –  Anna Lear Dec 29 '12 at 18:38

@AnnaLear: Or hover over the disabled edit link. ;P I propose that the existing "migrated from" banner just be tweaked to say "migration rejected from". Clear, yes? Of course, then you'd have to know that a rejection means the post is locked. –  animuson Dec 29 '12 at 18:39
    
Make it "migration from xyz rejected" and we have a deal. –  Daniel Fischer Dec 29 '12 at 18:43
    
Ah, see, the links aren't disabled for me. :P I don't have a preference for changing the banner or not. (Though if we're going to do it, Daniel Fischer's version sounds nicer.) –  Anna Lear Dec 29 '12 at 18:43
