I was wondering why 25 rep. points on SO vanished, and found it was due to a moderator deleting How do I create a GUI based network topology in Java?
What was the reason for deleting the question?
I have reviewed:
- Why was my answer deleted by a moderator? A: Engaging in conversation.
- Why was my answer deleted by a moderator A: Low quality question.
- Why was this answer deleted by a moderator? A: 'Link only' answer.
- Why was an accepted answer I wrote deleted? A: Duplicated content from another answer.
The only one that might apply is 'low quality question' based on the question getting a down-vote (note that is one single down-vote, not 7 or 10). OTOH the accepted answer was posted within 3 hours of and never needed editing, which suggests that the question is 'clear enough'.
