We currently have 13 users with 10k+ rep, and a few more to come. 10k+ users can see deleted answers. Sometimes this has its uses, but sometimes they're a nuisance, like when there are 8 deleted answers by the same user to a question.

Allow users to enable/disable this visibility in their profile. To be clear: not permanently disable; like I said it has its uses and then it must be "enable-able" again.

(thanks Oli and Kortuk for the support.)

  • \$\begingroup\$ @ThiefMaster EE.SE site probably has the lowest use of userscripts. \$\endgroup\$ – Kortuk Aug 17 '12 at 16:37
  • \$\begingroup\$ Gets my vote, I sometimes get rather tired of seeing so many deleted spam posts, so it would be very nice to have option. \$\endgroup\$ – Oli Glaser Aug 19 '12 at 21:55
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Kortuk - what's a user script? \$\endgroup\$ – Oli Glaser Aug 19 '12 at 21:56
  • \$\begingroup\$ @OliGlaser A way to modify site behavior locally by installing things into your browser. \$\endgroup\$ – Kortuk Sep 8 '12 at 1:24

  • \$\begingroup\$ I was about a factor 10 off in my earlier comment, but I still think it would be nice if deleted answers were at least folded or so. \$\endgroup\$ – jippie Jun 2 '13 at 17:10
