So what are the thoughts on participation by the admin who initially deleted the page in question? I don't feel that I should 'endorse' my own action, so should an admin not participate in a review of a page he or she deleted? Or should there be another possibility in the list in addition to 'endorse', 'relist' or 'overturn' - where the deleter can offer a statement as the reason for the deletion? ~ UDScott 16:43, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

I think it would be entirely appropriate and welcome for the deleting admin to "comment" with an explanation of the deletion/process rationale. ~ Ningauble 17:34, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
I agree that an admin should not endorse his or her own action in a deletion review process. I see nothing wrong with offering a statement preface with "Comment". Cheers! BD2412 T 17:36, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks! You pretty much echoed my thinking. ~ UDScott 18:51, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
