I've seen from my inbox a few lines of an answer to my question, but I didn't find it. I tried to see the edits of the previous answer but it does not look the same. I guess it was a new answer which has been deleted just before I could read it. Can I see deleted answers, in the same way I see previous edits? Of course, if the author decided to remove it, maybe it was not correct, but I am just curious to fully understand this site!

Thank you, anyway it's not a great issue this time, I already got an answer which solves my question... maybe the author is just shy! :D – laika Jan 28 '13 at 13:13
Or, as happened to me today, the author misread the question, posted an answer, then realized the mistake and corrected for that by deleting the answer.. – Martijn Pieters Jan 28 '13 at 13:15
If you are really curious you can always join chat and hope for a 10k user to copy you the contents of the deleted answer. – ThiefMaster Jan 28 '13 at 14:20
Upvote this feature-request that asks for this ability. – Lance Roberts Jan 28 '13 at 14:39
@LanceRoberts - Isn't that feature request for own questions/answers? While here OP is asking for answers on his question. :-) (By the way I am already in favour of that request.) – hims056 Jan 29 '13 at 5:55
@hims056, good point. – Lance Roberts Jan 29 '13 at 6:21

You can't see deleted answer (or post) if you do not have 10K+ reputation on the particular site. To see the deleted answers you need to gain 10000 reputation.
