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


Are all these really examples of the OP deleting and then undeleting? There seem to be a lot of them.

Based on comments, I conclude that what is happening is this: the 20k users are cheerfully voting to delete things. These things are counted as 'most delete votes' even for 10k users, so they appear to have no delete votes at all. This diminishes the utility of the delete tab for 10k users, since the things we can act on are not shown if the few slots are occupied by things we can't on.

It does have a delete vote. Is it yours? – mmyers Mar 8 '11 at 23:13
I don't see any delete votes either. Can we not see them because we are only in the 10k privileges range and the question is less than 48 hours old? – Brandon Mar 8 '11 at 23:27
Maybe, but in that case who could have cast a non-binding vote? – mmyers Mar 8 '11 at 23:36
@mmyers 20k users don't need to wait two days – Michael Mrozek Mar 9 '11 at 0:58
Ah. I thought that only applied to negatively voted questions. – mmyers Mar 9 '11 at 2:42
@mich and 20k users's votes are invisible to non-20-k users? – Rosinante Mar 9 '11 at 11:58
Does this still happen? – kiamlaluno Jun 29 '12 at 13:22
This doesn't seem to be an issue anymore? Or at least I don't see anything special about this example question and I haven't noticed any particular oddities with other recently deleted questions. Holler if I missed something here. – Adam Lear Jun 6 '13 at 2:42
I wouldn't know since I have 20k :-) – Rosinante Jun 6 '13 at 13:07
