I've recently gotten to 10K reputation on Sci-Fi. It's pretty cool, but there's an annoying thing about the mod tools: the lists of delete and undelete votes include both questions and answers. As I don't have the 20K Trusted User privileges, I can't vote on deleting or undeleting answers (and I can't even see how many undelete votes are on them). Because of this, the listing of answers just gets in the way of finding things to consider voting to delete or undelete.

Can we have the ability to view just delete votes for questions (and by extension just for answers) in the moderation tools?

    While this doesn't fulfill the "filter request" the way to tell the difference is that deleted questions have a reason in brackets while a deleted answer is shown titled as the question without a deletion reason, see: i.sstatic.net/BfIwW.png - That should help while you wait to see if your feature-request will be accepted.

    Sadly, whatever the reason why, the list is cluttered with questions and answers that you can't vote to delete until you reach 20k. As there isn't a way to filter by tag either, these 'moderation tools' are pretty useless. I think that I have seen the request for filters made many times without success. That would have been a very welcome change though. Commented Nov 18, 2019 at 18:01

You can differentiate questions from answers in that list. Answer hyperlinks are body-text sized, while question hyperlinks are larger.

I also have a userscript to toggle display of questions and answers in the 10k tools pages:
