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

In the 10k tools on Meta, the posts that show having undelete votes have a count showing that is off by 1. Some of these have no undelete votes showing on the post, so it's not a caching issue.

There are two things you are seeing here.

For the questions that have higher shown on the question than shown in the tools, this is because you're only looking at a time-based filter in the tools. The one with 2 undelete votes, if you look at the 30 day view it shows 3 undelete votes. Undelete votes age away much slower than other votes, if at all.

For the questions that are reported as having 1 undelete vote on the tools, but don't show any on the question, this is because both of them have been undeleted successfully, and were simply re-deleted afterwards. Like close votes, solidified undeletion/deletion votes retain their count even after the choice has been reversed.

The first paragraph is the answer, but in the second case, I would see three undelete votes (usually). I've seen that phenomenon before. It looks like @gnostradamus has the (now deleted) answer to that. – Lance Roberts Oct 18 '10 at 16:27
@Lance Did you check to see if maybe 3 people did actually undelete it, and it just got deleted again afterwards? Because that's the community expansion of that second paragraph. – Grace Note Oct 18 '10 at 16:27
Look here (10k only) to see why 1 undelete vote shows for one of the posts listed under the 10k tools, even though there are none on the post. – gnostradamus Oct 18 '10 at 16:30
