Fine, the new neon sign's math works the same as the math did in the old pop-up. That makes sense. But this is just silly. Why do I need to be notified that a post I downvoted got deleted?

(The title links next to the red -1s were removed from the screenshot by me. They're present in the real pop-up.)

So I can break out a bottle of the '82 Rothschild? It's especially pointless because there's no link to the post that caused the change.

Please don't display the Rep Signal when the change is only due to someone else's deleted posts.

    "It's especially pointless because there's no link to the post." That's weird... with your amount of rep on MSO, shouldn't you be able to see links to those posts? Dec 10, 2013 at 3:36
  • The removed post is on SO main, @Bolt, but the popup doesn't display them regardless of site or privileges.

    Oh, you're talking about the fact that there's no titles next to the red -1s there, @Bolt. I anonymized those to protect innocent Joshes. Sorry for that confusion.

Every time a downvoted post gets deleted, a unicorn gets its wings.

And you know what that means.


Time to whip up a batch of tasty unicorn buffalo wings.

  • What pairs well with unicorn buffalo wings? It certainly isn't an '82 Rothschild.
