I had just deleted this answer.

So my reputation page now reflects that.


For some reason the row that tells me of the deletion does not have a link to my deleted answer.

Can we please make it so that text is linkified as well?

linkify it

I think this is on purpose. Although I'm remembering some mixed messages about this topic, so I'm not 100% sure. – jadarnel27 Feb 29 '12 at 19:44
Even everything2 allows you to visit with your deleted posts to say your last goodbyes. :'( – Adam Davis Feb 29 '12 at 19:45
Are you saying that there's two links to the exact same post, one of which is a link and the other not? Or are you asking in general for a link to deleted content through your rep page? – Josh Caswell Feb 29 '12 at 20:06
@JoshCaswell one is a link (the lower one) and the other is not a link at all! – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Feb 29 '12 at 20:07
That sounds like a bug. – Josh Caswell Feb 29 '12 at 20:07
@JoshCaswell exactly ^_^ – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Feb 29 '12 at 20:09

This is more a bug that the original downvote gets linked after its been deleted, at least that's how I think Nick Craver will see it.

See this comment by the man himself:

Something to note on your update, if you're a 10k user those post titles are linked.

However, it would be nice to still be linked to the question itself, if the post deleted was an answer.

Yes but they should be linked, especially if they are my own answers! – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Feb 29 '12 at 19:45
