After the last monster recalc took me below 20k I should still have had the 10k ability to delete things.

I went to this post to cast a delete vote, and found that even though I'm still over 10k the delete link didn't appear. Note that in the delete tab of the 10k tools it shows as having two delete votes (as of the occurrence, as per this pic).

EDIT: As Grace Note pointed out, in February (2011) they changed it so 20ks could delete posts immediately instead of waiting for 2 days.

Protect questions is a 15000 privilege, not 20000.

Consequently, you currently can't vote to delete that post because as a 10000 user, you still have to wait 2 days. Regarding it still being listed to a 10000 user, please consider supporting this feature request to amend that.

Hmmm, wonder when they changed it. I'll revise the question. Thanks. –  Lance Roberts Apr 20 '11 at 17:40
    
@Lance They didn't, actually, protection has always been at 15000. See under February on the Recent Feature Changes. –  Grace Note Apr 20 '11 at 17:41
    
Then how did the delete votes showing (2) get on it? –  Lance Roberts Apr 20 '11 at 17:41

@Lance Because 20000 users can vote to delete, like I've just done so? –  Grace Note Apr 20 '11 at 17:42
    
OK, I've edited in a link to let everyone know about the recent change. I've also put a bounty on the feature request. Thanks. –  Lance Roberts Apr 20 '11 at 17:51
    
@Lance You're welcome, any time. It's easy to lose track of new feature changes and privilege levels that get rolled in. –  Grace Note Apr 20 '11 at 17:53
