I just saw a post (deleted) Crop portion of string with PHP [closed] which was deleted by Gordon♦ but is shown as:

deleted by Charles, Gordon♦, Gordon♦ 1 min ago

How is it that one person (whether a mod or not) can vote twice on the same post?

Let me guess, he voted to delete it before being a moderator and deleted it outright once he became one yesterday? –  Bart Mar 13 '13 at 8:44

Yup, there was 2 votes on it already. One apparently my own. I have undeleted and deleted it now, so it only says deleted by Gordon♦ now. –  Gordon Mar 13 '13 at 8:55
    
@Gordon I know what you did last summer :P –  Shadow Wizard Mar 13 '13 at 9:01

Hey that's not fair! I deleted this post myself - I just wanted something to see the "deleted by". I call "foul" on a spurious undelete by someone who I @Won't mention... i.stack.imgur.com/T9vug.png –  Marc Gravell Mar 13 '13 at 15:46
    
@TimPost Even the mighty Google Translate doesn't know what language is that. –  Mark Garcia Mar 19 '13 at 8:05
    
undelete votes still causing this same bug. –  Shadow Wizard Jul 31 '13 at 10:31

Because first delete vote by Gordon was before becoming a moderator. And second vote was after becoming a moderator. There are several cases in other Stack Exchange sites for close votes too.
E.g.

The explanation for this curious behavior is already explained by hims056; however, this duplication will not occur after the next build.

Ooh; sweet! The OCD part of me likes fixes like this. (So, all of me) –  Andrew Barber Mar 13 '13 at 10:53
    
Is the fix for delete votes only or for close votes too? –  hims056 Mar 13 '13 at 10:55
    
    
In all seriousness, what happens now if two or more different users with diamonds are listed in deleted/closed? –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Mar 13 '13 at 11:04
