Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Before how many days or hours can I undelete a deleted question?

Do high rated users have any more benefits like archiving or something?

Not sure I understand either of your questions. Do you wonder if deleted posts are permanently deleted after some time? What do you mean by archiving? – Mat Feb 22 '12 at 11:01

If you have the privilege to undelete a question, as far as I know it can be done instantly you don't have to wait at all. (That's not the case when deleting, but this is different matter)

One exception though - ordinary user can't vote to undelete a question that was deleted by a moderator. This is fairly recent change made to prevent "delete wars".

There is not such thing as "archive", at least not directly.. however users with 10,000 reputation and more can see deleted posts, so here on Meta you can find discussions which list deleted questions that such high rep members can still see.
