I am having trouble interpreting the information in the 10K delete review queue.
The help center entry doesn't really go into detail about the UI. In particular, it is missing the following things, which I am wondering about:
- The meaning of the number to the left of the post.
- The meaning of the number in parentheses to the right of the post (note: it's explained in the tool tips).
- The color (dark blue, light blue,
gray) of the post.
I have been told that X title (Y) means that a post has X delete votes and Y more are needed to actually delete it. The Y part seems right, but I just voted to delete a "3 title (1)" question, and on the question itself it said there were 9 delete votes, not 3. What does the X mean?
The colors, I think I've been able to deduce (also, I have tested and confirmed that dark vs. light blue is not related to the visited link status in the browser, although the gray ones are visited light blue ones, which I did not realize when I first posted this):
- Dark blue = closed.
- Light blue = on hold (or not able to be voted on?)
Gray = unsure: either "open", or an answer (or not able to be voted on - although I just spotted this light blue question that I am not able to cast a delete vote on yet because it is too recent).
Is that correct?
Also, I am unclear on what it means for an answer to be in that queue. I just clicked a "1 title (2)" answer. It had a score of 0. But... I can't cast delete votes on answers. This seems to be a 20K privilege (which I do not have right now). However, that privilege only allows one to vote to delete answers that have a score of -1 or lower. All the answers I saw had a score of 0, which even a 20K user could not vote to delete. So, I am unsure what type of action is merited on an answer that appears in this queue. What is the UI asking me to do with answers?
- What does X
and Yin "X Title (Y)" mean and, if X is the number of votes cast, why does it not agree with the vote count present on the question page?
- What do the colors mean?
- What do I do with answers?
- Bonus: Can the help center be updated with a description of the UI? (I may post this as a separate feature request).
