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

In the 10K tools for stackoverflow, there is a question that was migrated. Yet, it sits there, using a space, without a delete link, on the list of things with pending delete votes.

That single delete vote was cast a few days after the question was initially closed as "off-topic". You are correct that the vote will hang around without moderator intervention.

What should have occurred is that upon question reopening, pending delete votes are removed - we'll change reopening to work this way.

I've removed that delete vote now. – Jarrod Dixon May 17 '10 at 15:37

It's on the list of things with pending delete votes because it has a pending delete vote. How is this a bug?

It doesn't show me a pending delete vote. How, anyway, can something already migrated to another site have a pending delete vote? – Rosinante May 17 '10 at 14:13
it's a bug to show it in the list, suggesting that it can be voted on. This is a problem only because there is a hard limit of 15 questions that ever show up in this list -- so this question will be using up a slot until it finally expires in 30 days. – Ether May 17 '10 at 14:48
