I asked a question on Stack Overflow, and then deleted it because it wasn't properly formatted. I can't undelete it (not enough privilege), nor repost it (duplicate). Any thoughts?

Can you still see it? – simchona Jan 12 '12 at 19:33
Thats what editting is for – Gabe Jan 12 '12 at 19:34
No I can't - I think you need more privilege to see deleted questions – Andrew Jan 12 '12 at 19:35
Reposting a properly formatted version should be fine. – Adam Lear Jan 12 '12 at 19:35
Reposting a properly formatted version yields "duplicate" – Andrew Jan 12 '12 at 19:36
If it was deleted, take comments you got into account and edit. If it was previously closed as a duplicate, clearly explain why it isn't. – simchona Jan 12 '12 at 19:37
@simchona I think Andrew was (probably) running into the no duplicate titles rule, not having a problem with being closed as a duplicate – jadarnel27 Jan 12 '12 at 19:45
@jdarnel27 oh, thank you. Ive never run into that before so I was operating off a false premise. – simchona Jan 12 '12 at 19:48
@jadarnel27 I'm surprised that a deleted question was tripping that check, but it might just be a caching problem. – Adam Lear Jan 12 '12 at 19:53
@AnnaLear Hmmm, good point. – jadarnel27 Jan 12 '12 at 19:59

I've edited the question to fix code formatting and undeleted it. Feel free to edit it further if you think anything else needs changing.
