According to this thread, once a user hits 10K, the
deleted:1 search operator becomes available, but it only allows users to see their own deleted posts.
This seems a bit counter-intuitive to me. Given that the whole point in seeing deleted posts is to ensure the feature is being used correctly, as delineated in the preceding paragraphs, shouldn’t you be able to use
deleted:1 to see all deleted posts, and then follow it up with, say,
user:me to see your own?
This would have the added benefit that if there’s a problematic user with the ID
user:x, you could search
deleted:1 user:x and see how much trouble they’re stirring up behind the scenes.
As a potential expansion of this, if this gets implemented, it might be useful to add an operator like
deletedby:mod, etc. to specify not just that it is deleted, but also who deleted it.
