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

Just noticed this: (source question)

After quick check on other question old and heavily downvoted and not closed, I can indeed cast a vote and it's recorded.

I see the link on all questions including upvoted questions here on Meta. and Stack Overflow too.

I double checked; did not get any diamond.

Not sure it's related and don't remember if it was showing delete votes before, but the "Delete and Undelete votes" tab in 10K tools is empty.

Ssssst, don't tell them. I have been abusing this for some time now. Wait, I could just delete this... – Bart Jul 3 '13 at 14:10
Is it on main too? – Sklivvz Jul 3 '13 at 14:14
@Sklivvz: No, just here on meta for me. – juergen d Jul 3 '13 at 14:18
@Sklivvz yes on main too for me. Wait, checking again. Edit: nope, but can swear I had "delete" link on main site too minutes ago. – Shadow Wizard Jul 3 '13 at 14:19
I don't see the delete link (and I don't have access to mod tools on meta) so unable to replicate at my end. – Darren Davies Jul 3 '13 at 14:21
@Darren yeah, guess you must have at least 10K to start with so you can delete closed questions. – Shadow Wizard Jul 3 '13 at 14:22
Voted to delete because reasons. – Manishearth Jul 3 '13 at 14:22
@Manishearth! – Shadow Wizard Jul 3 '13 at 14:26
Delete votes cleared! ;) – Shadow Wizard Jul 3 '13 at 14:27
Hey who cast another vote??!@!@ – Shadow Wizard Jul 3 '13 at 14:34
And now it is gone...why did you have to spoil it?! If this would have hit main, we could have done the biggest clean-up since...since...ever! Imagine the frontpage after the cleanup...JUST THINK OF THE FRONTPAGE! – Time Traveling Bobby Jul 3 '13 at 14:37
@M.NightDemonbobby well, it lasted for few minutes there and when I think of what could have happened... this is the result! ;) – Shadow Wizard Jul 3 '13 at 14:38
@ShaWizDowArd: Imagine a very wise, intelligent, philosophical and deep statement here how beautiful the desert can be, and how it is sometimes better to have a desert instead of everything else. – Time Traveling Bobby Jul 3 '13 at 14:41
There are days when voting to delete all the questions on meta is tempting... – dmckee Jul 3 '13 at 15:13

My bad, refactoring oops.

The mighty Nick Craver has written a patch, which I am sending out right now, please verify the fix :-)

Only on MSO can I break the site, not fix it, and get upvoted :-) – Sklivvz Jul 3 '13 at 14:34
Noooooooo...all this power, lost forever! – Time Traveling Bobby Jul 3 '13 at 14:34
Yup, fixed. The rep is for the hard work fixing what you broke! :D – Shadow Wizard Jul 3 '13 at 14:36
@ShaWizDowArd: Nick fixed it. ;) – Time Traveling Bobby Jul 3 '13 at 14:36
@M.NightDemonbobby so if he wanted the rep he should have come here himself, not send a messenger! :) – Shadow Wizard Jul 3 '13 at 14:37
@ShaWizDowArd He's out at the moment. – Sklivvz Jul 3 '13 at 14:37
@Sklivvz: Please don't tell me he wrote the fix on his phone or something... – Time Traveling Bobby Jul 3 '13 at 14:39
@M.NightDemonbobby no, he wrote it before leaving. I wouldn't be surprised if there were some other patches done on his iPad though. – Sklivvz Jul 3 '13 at 14:40
@Sklivvz why spoil the fun? I was happily imagining Nick sending you the patch via brain waves... :P – Shadow Wizard Jul 3 '13 at 14:41
@ShaWizDowArd we asked him to stop sending brainwaves. He's too smart and we were getting nose bleeds. – Sklivvz Jul 3 '13 at 14:42
@ShaWizDowArd: You mean something like this? – Time Traveling Bobby Jul 3 '13 at 14:43
@M.NightDemonbobby I knew I missed something! – Shadow Wizard Jul 3 '13 at 14:45
-1 This is not a bug fix, it's a feature retraction. – Bart Jul 3 '13 at 14:45
By the way, you can tag status-completed now. :-) – Shadow Wizard Jul 3 '13 at 14:47
By the way, can you put [status-deferred] on the linked to question by @M.NightDemonbobby that would be greatly appreciated. – ryan Jul 3 '13 at 15:03
