Users with more than 1000 reputation points can see delete votes in the post timeline, but it's much more convenient to have this information fetched and added to the sidebar:

Note that the script does nothing for users under 1000 reputation points

How it works

  • It fetches the timeline for all posts with a score lower than 0 and compares delete votes with delete events.
  • It works in the review queues but makes an exception for a score lower than 1, instead of 0, for the "Low quality posts" queue. This applies to all posts, not just the one under review.
  • To avoid rate limits, it makes no more than 5 concurrent fetches.

It fetches the timelines, because the delete votes are not available at the Stack Exchange API, see API returns delete vote count for questions, but not for answers.

Should work with any user script manager in any major browser.
Tested with Tampermonkey using Opera.

    @NoviceMindset Opera is a "Chromium-based browser", so I didn't think it was necessary to test it. Have you had issues with it? Aug 14, 2021 at 13:48
  • Does this script works in review queues? I have noticed that it does not work in review queues. Aug 19, 2021 at 23:22
