See this question. When you hover over the (7) in the delete button, it says: -4 more vote(s) needed to delete this question. It seems that this always assumes that 3 votes are needed to delete the question, which isn't true anymore.

    Note for clarification: you have to hover over the (7) section of the button, not just the "delete" portion of the button. If you hover over "delete" portion, you get "vote to remove this post". – Randolpho May 26 '10 at 15:43
  • After voting to delete it, the message informed me that one more vote was required... But now hovering over the number informs me that -5 votes are needed. – Shog9 May 26 '10 at 15:44

    This reminds me of when we had 18 votes to close a question for migration. Possibly the same issue rearing its head for the new delete vote limits? – Grace Note May 26 '10 at 15:50

    What's with the (s)? Has he received a pluralization bug 1 times too many? – Andrew Grimm Nov 3 '10 at 11:39

Good eyes! This has been fixed and will be pushed tonight.

  • Now it gives a different sort of wrong results. I think it's giving the total votes needed instead of the amount remaining. For example, this question says 3 more votes needed when it already has 2: stackoverflow.com/questions/2888982/… – interjay May 27 '10 at 11:44
  • @interjay - a fix for that will be pushed tonight. Thank you again! – Jarrod Dixon Jun 1 '10 at 20:24
  • Got one more for you Jarrod. stackoverflow.com/questions/237448 Has three, saying it needs three more. – Jeff Mercado Oct 2 '11 at 23:26
  • @JeffMercado that's because it's a more popular question - see this answer where we define how aggregate score affects delete votes needed. – Jarrod Dixon Oct 3 '11 at 1:41
  • @JarrodDixon: Ah thanks for pointing that out. I thought it was just a fixed, three votes required. – Jeff Mercado Oct 3 '11 at 2:09
  • Has this problem reappeared? meta.stackexchange.com/questions/195031/… – user102937 Aug 28 '13 at 21:39
