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

We get auto flags for 'possible vandalism' related to deletes, and these can be helpful at times in finding 'rage quit' users, or other potential problems.

But often, I would like to know if there is a prior pattern with the user doing this. While we can see posts of theirs which have been flagged, and perhaps find previous auto flags this way, it would be nice to see an overall view of their self-deletions and undeletions; mostly just to identify patterns.

Such a feature would be nice if it was activity centered, rather than post-centered. That is; each delete/undelete action should be shown. So we could easily see, for example, if someone went back-and-forth on a single post. The "activity" tab in the profile would be a logical place to show these events.

I think this would be best to be limited to instant self-deletions, not deletion votes.

See my earlier request -… - which asks for different information but for the same reasons. – ChrisF Sep 4 '13 at 13:31
@ChrisF Oooh... good one. I really need to peruse the Feature Request tag more often! heh – Andrew Barber Sep 4 '13 at 13:51
Same request with somewhat different motivation behind it (in particular, that one didn't involve any flags): – Monica Cellio May 8 '14 at 17:55
