The new deletion rules say:

popular questions require more deletion votes to be deleted, at a ratio of 20:1 - a question's popularity is defined by the sum of its score plus all its answers' scores.

Is there an easy way to determine a questions "score", or alternatively to determine how many delete votes would be required to close that question? For example, 1764090 is up to 11 votes; I have no idea if it needs 1 more vote or 30. I could find out by voting to delete, but obviously that's less than ideal

If there is no other way, it might be useful to include that information somewhere; for example, changing the link to say "delete (11/12)"

As of 14th March, 2013:

A question (or answer) with Votes to Close (or Delete) now shows the number of votes already cast and the number of votes needed to close (or delete) (e.g., (2/5))

For example:

If you hover (11) in delete (11), it will show you 14 more votes needed to delete.

Ah, of course. Every time I can't find information on SO it turns out to be in a tooltip. Thanks –  Michael Mrozek Jun 26 '10 at 9:31
    
On an unrelated note, what did you use to add the timeline link? I assumed it was a greasemonkey script, but I can't find it and remain too lazy to write it myself –  Michael Mrozek Jun 26 '10 at 18:15
