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

I asked a question a while ago:

It's apparently been "deleted for reasons of moderation" - but I never got notified of it being closed/downvoted - so I'm a bit confused as to what happened.

If someone with the necessary reputation level could look at it and tell me what happened? I just want to know where I went wrong.

It was deleted by automated process back in May 5th as it got no answers and no upvotes for a year and didn't have enough views or comments to "justify" keeping it around.

Here is the official post where it was implemented:

Enable automatic deletion of old, unanswered zero-score questions after a year?

Thank you, Sha. I was getting a little confused wondering how it met the criteria for being a bad question. – TZHX Sep 27 '12 at 13:05
@TZHX not a bad question, more like abandoned question. – Shadow Wizard Sep 27 '12 at 13:06
not really abandonned, it just never got any answers so I moved on with life (and got a different job). I'll accept this when the system lets me. – TZHX Sep 27 '12 at 13:08
If you want to re-ask the question let me know, I can copy&paste it here for your sake - maybe now you can ask it better in a form that will attract more attention to it. :) – Shadow Wizard Sep 27 '12 at 13:09
