10k rep members are allowed to see deleted questions, is there a way to find questions that were deleted or to see a list of them somewhere? Thanks.

If you have 10k rep, you can also see a list of recently deleted questions in the Moderation Tools.

Where? I don't see it. –  msh210 Jan 5 '12 at 22:43
    
@msh210, see update. Click on the "Tools" and make sure you're on the Delete tab. –  Brandon Jan 5 '12 at 22:46
    
I don't see a "Tools" link. Is it supposed to be atop the page? I'm a diamond mod, and see only "mod" and "review" there -- and neither of those has a "Delete" tab. Is this something 10k users can see and diamond mods can't? (That'd be very strange.) –  msh210 Jan 5 '12 at 22:54
    
Oh! Found it: it's at /tools (and has a "Delete" tab, as you said). Oddly, though, there doesn't seem to be a link to that page from anywhere (for me). –  msh210 Jan 5 '12 at 22:56
    
The Tools link is replace by the Review link and vice-versa, depending on how you enter the pages. –  squillman Jan 6 '12 at 2:10

You need to have the direct link to the question. They also show up if you have previously starred them as a favorite question.

Do direct links always work though? Sometimes when my questions get deleted, I try to view the comments to them but I can't because the thread's all gone... Everything at stackprinter.com/deleted is unviewable. –  InquilineKea Apr 1 '12 at 19:10

For very recently deleted questions where you know the exact title you may be able to see the google cached version of the page. Google the exact title, click on the down arrow next to the green link, click "Cached".

Probably not possible, but if you these are your own questions and you were down-voted for these questions, go to 'reputation' from your profile and select 'show removed posts', they'll appear, but not linked. Based on the removed title, you may try to find the direct link either in Google Cache, Wayback Machine or in your web-browser history.
