I went on to delete a few posts today from the 10k tools page. I noticed the following bug when using the delete button:

  1. I'm merely hovering over the button. Haven't clicked it yet.

    Just hovering

  2. Clicking it shows the following alert box:

    High alert

  3. Afterwards, on selecting OK from the previous section; you'd see this:

    yay for algebra

On viewing the page source; you'd see this HTML:

    title="You voted to delete. 2 more votes from other users are needed to delete this post."
    data-delete-prompt="Vote to delete this post? (10 votes remaining)"
    data-undelete-prompt="Vote to undelete this post? (13 votes remaining)">
        delete (2)

Did I do something wrong in my basic algebra?

    What is the bug? What do you expect to be different? I probably miss the point... – rene Mar 4 '14 at 13:04
  • Maybe I'm missing something, but isn't one extra delete vote required every 10 upvotes? There are 10 upvotes and 2 downvotes on the question. – Qantas 94 Heavy Mar 4 '14 at 13:04

    @rene But, but... but! I used the hand-made red circle thingies... – hjpotter92 Mar 4 '14 at 13:05

    @hjpotter92 The 10 votes remaining means you have 10 remaining delete votes. – Stijn Mar 4 '14 at 13:05
  • @Qantas94Heavy I think so, but I wouldn't know which count to believe with a conflict in numbers like this. – hjpotter92 Mar 4 '14 at 13:06
  • @hjpotter92 ok, ok, have my upvote... – rene Mar 4 '14 at 13:06
  • @Stijn Ah, I see. Any documentation? – hjpotter92 Mar 4 '14 at 13:07
  • Is that html there after you voted to delete? That could be a potential bug if you could 'load' a new question to delete without a full server roundtrip. – rene Mar 4 '14 at 13:13

    @hjpotter92 Yes, I've just found documentation, see my answer. – Stijn Mar 4 '14 at 13:14

The 10 votes remaining means you have 10 remaining delete votes.

Here's the feature request for the implementation of this: Can we display the users' remaining votes when voting to delete?
