Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 just noticed this post was deleted:

I found this by googling for a problem I had. And this question is nearly the same as the problem I have right now. But the question is deleted. There is no indication that it was closed as off-topic or migrated, it was simply "Deleted by Community‚ô¶ Jan 27 at 2:11", and I can't find a post with a similar title on serverfault or anywhere else either.

Anyone know why this was deleted? I'm especially curious why it was deleted by Community. Could this deletion be the result of some automatic process?

Automatic system process that delete questions with no upvotes after they are not active for a while – Shadow Wizard Feb 13 '13 at 22:45
Ah! Thanks. And this is definitely a dupe, added my own close vote. – Ben Lee Feb 13 '13 at 22:47
Cheers, though I think it's better if some message will appear in the question revisions in such case. Feature request, anyone? :) – Shadow Wizard Feb 13 '13 at 22:50
