If somebody writes an answer, deletes it, and undeletes it again, that answer will show up with one delete vote in /tools?tab=delete. This leads to the delete/undelete vote lists being flooded with such post, making it unusable. The lists get cluttered with posts I most of the time couldn't and shouldn't vote on.

Posts should only show up in the delete/undelete vote lists if somebody else than the owner cast these votes.

  • Hm... this wasn't so much a problem back when it was questions only. But now that answers are added there, this will indeed make it cumbersome.

About the same time you asked this question, we changed the delete/undelete votes to only display posts that have ever been deleted or undeleted by someone else than their owner.

In other words, somewhere in the deletion history of the post, someone else had a play.
