This is a pretty small edge case, but hey, it's a bug.

The post I'm looking at is this one. It was deleted by me, then undeleted by me (a few hours before the review) after I decided it would be better to leave it up to reviewers and/or follow up after they'd had a chance to edit their answer.

Seven hours later, it was deleted via six Delete selections from review. However, instead of showing "deleted X hour(s) ago" like I'd expect (taken from another random LQP review), it instead shows "deleted by Emrakul X hour(s) ago" (the post in question).

Except I didn't delete it (the second time). It was deleted from review.

Again, sort of a small thing, and I doubt it'll ever create a serious issue, but I felt like reporting it anyway.

  • @ShadowWizard It doesn't look like the answer was ever revised. Mod timeline shows basically the same thing: deleted by mod, undeleted by mod, a few hours later deleted from review.

    This goes back to review-deletions being special (as in, not recording the same history type and not requiring multiple voters or a moderator to undelete). See also: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/267485/…

  • @Shog9 so should we mark this as duplicate? (as fixing that other one will also fix this one?) Commented Jun 1, 2016 at 20:26
  • Don't care; just wanted them cross-linked. I guess strictly-speaking, this is a bug while that isn't.

This was fixed as part of the changes needed to correctly attribute deletion from review.
