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 on sonar yesterday and then deleted it because it was not clear enough, as I wasn't able to edit it properly.

Today I want to post a question on the same subject but I can't. It keeps telling me I already posted a similar question.

When I follow the link to my question I'm told it was removed by the author which is me.

That is strange, but this might be by design. I've flagged a moderator to undelete the answer. – Asad Saeeduddin Mar 21 '13 at 8:15
@Asad Question I assume? – Bart Mar 21 '13 at 8:19
@Bart Yup, sorry. – Asad Saeeduddin Mar 21 '13 at 8:20
Wallou, can you still see the question's content? Can't you simply undelete it? – Bart Mar 21 '13 at 8:21
@Bart Users under 10k cannot undelete their questions and this is by design apparently. – Rapptz Mar 21 '13 at 8:22
The question is now undeleted – Raghav Sood Mar 21 '13 at 8:22
Thanks for undeleted it. – wallou Mar 21 '13 at 8:33
@Rapptz D'oh....I should really start asking questions on SO one of these days. – Bart Mar 21 '13 at 8:43

Instead of asking the same question again, you should edit your previous question and improve it. To undelete your question flag one of your post with that deleted question's link. Once moderators undelete your question, edit and improve it.

And the question is undeleted now.

It might not necessarily need improvement, since it was deleted a minute after it was posted by the OP. – Asad Saeeduddin Mar 21 '13 at 8:26
I wasn't able to edit the question. Whatever changes i made it wasn't updated properly. – wallou Mar 21 '13 at 8:32
@Asad - True. But by reading improve it, someone may improve the question. :) – hims056 Mar 21 '13 at 8:55
