DoubleAA (a mod for over a year) seems to have to vote extra times to undelete a post.


Shouldn't it just say his name once?

Week has passed and five more have been added... this is getting out of control!

    It appears to not be clearing the list of undelete-voters when it actually gets undeleted, so it keeps appending his name to the list each time he undeletes the question again. I'm positive this has happened before and they fixed it... – animuson Jul 30 '13 at 22:01

    As an aside should the community user be repeatedly deleting what a moderator undeletes – Richard Tingle Jul 30 '13 at 22:05

    @Bart This appears to be a different situation as Double AA has been a moderator for more than a year. Voting to reopen. – Antony Jul 31 '13 at 2:46

    +1 I was waiting to the report this so I could continue undeleting a couple times to make it even more humorous – Double AA Jul 31 '13 at 4:58

    @DoubleAA by the way, why keep fighting Community user? You know you'll lose and it can only end in tears. ;-) – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Jul 31 '13 at 9:49

    I think this sort of abusive behaviour is only going to get the community user banned. Getting into a revert war with a moderator indeed – Richard Tingle Jul 31 '13 at 9:59

    @ShaWizDowArd It's possible that after one more round, I'll have 5 permanent undelete votes which will work instantly if that conniving fool ever tries deleting it again. – Double AA Jul 31 '13 at 11:11

    @ShaWizDowArd Can we get an updated screenshot with even more freehand exclamations? – Double AA Aug 6 '13 at 6:46

    @RichardTingle Hey it takes a lot of effort to remember to click a certain button once every day or so!!! Cut me some slack! – Double AA Aug 14 '13 at 8:05

    @ShmuelBrin Only the symptom. The system still doesn't clear undelete votes correctly. – Double AA Aug 23 '13 at 19:30

    Well someone got guts to fight back with Community! respect for him! – Afzaal Ahmad Zeeshan Nov 18 '13 at 21:07

Moderators have infinite undelete votes, but that's not the case here.

The cause for deletion is automatic process that deletes old, closed and unanswered questions, process that as of June 2013 runs daily.

Now as for the increasing undelete votes, those votes don't get reset when the post is undeleted thus get "stacked", most likely a bug.

Until the bug will be fixed and delete votes will be cleared, one way to stop the endless battle and avoid insanity is to simply reopen the question thus it won't be auto deleted anymore. (Unless having 0 or negative score, but that's a different story)
