Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

I mangled a convert to comment earlier and needed to undelete the post so I could redo it. When the post was converted a second time, I noticed it suddenly had a single undelete vote (it said "undelete (1)" on the link, and showed up in the 10k list). When I undeleted and converted it again it had two votes, and so on:

If I delete normally it works fine; it's only converting to comment (and probably edit, although I didn't try) more than once that leaves behind undelete votes

Alternatively, you're secretly building up an army of Nega-Mrozeks by undeleting them from non-existence, soon able to topple the world and conquer it under the banner of an angry glaring chess piece. This is no bug report, but a preview of the future's madness under your iron rule! – Grace Note Jun 10 '11 at 14:32
    
@Grace I wish I could get this to work on close votes instead of undelete votes; I would make every closed post say I voted to close it five times – Michael Mrozek Jun 10 '11 at 14:33

I'm also kind of curious why the space between revision blocks gets bigger as you go up the list – Michael Mrozek Jun 10 '11 at 14:36

I don't believe this actually happens. – Won't Jun 10 '11 at 14:45

Not until we break out some doughnuts – Won't Jun 10 '11 at 14:45

Or at the very least set up some Earl Grey for our guests – Won't Jun 10 '11 at 14:45

Don't you think they'd like some cucumber sandwiches as well? – Won't Jun 10 '11 at 14:45

What a marvellous idea! Summon the chef to prepare the breadknife. – Won't Jun 10 '11 at 14:45

We mustn't forget to include the jar jam to swill in our teas – Won't Jun 10 '11 at 14:45

Yes! We can pretend we are all Leo Tolstoys and marvel at the wonder of life – Won't Jun 10 '11 at 14:45

@Wont Well, you appear to be outvoted 7-1 – Michael Mrozek Jun 10 '11 at 14:47

So... get it right the first time. ;) – Kit Menke Jun 10 '11 at 14:57

Notice this also works for any post that gets deleted, then undeleted to convert to comment. I haven't tried with delete-undelete-delete proper. – jcolebrand Jun 10 '11 at 15:03

This will be fixed in the next build. There is a vote cleanup function for old votes that wasn't running on this code path...and is now.
