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 just complained that this question had been deleted

How to focus the next focusable field in browsers whose keyCode is readonly?

I was massively downvoted here at META because the asker himself had deleted it so I deleted my META question to not get more downvotes. HOWEVER I suddenly realised that I was correct in not understanding why it was deleted. I had answered it. So how could the user with a 3 digit rep delete his own question when there was an answer?

NOTE: I rewrote the title of the SO question and voted to re-open it and now it is...

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Thanks - I could not find that tiny nugget of info about the non-upvoted answer. And my question got downvoted. Who are the DV addicts here? – mplungjan Apr 16 '13 at 13:13
I can't see any answer on that question – Lucifer Apr 16 '13 at 13:14
One tip: don't ask not to be downvoted. That seems to only invite them. But then again, don't worry too much about Meta downvotes. They come far more easily than on SO itself. And the rep here doesn't mean much. – Bart Apr 16 '13 at 13:15
@mplungjan Downvoting works a bit differently on Meta. Your question isn't at all bad, its just come up quite a few times before. Things can .. be a little hard to find here, so don't take it personally. – Tim Post Apr 16 '13 at 13:16
But I still hate to be downvoted and cannot fathom who does it on such flimsy premises. Thanks for the link. Since THIS question now has an upvoted answer I cannot delete it :| – mplungjan Apr 16 '13 at 13:16
Don't worry about that. Dupes don't necessarily do any harm. Might be a decent alternative formulation pointing to the dupe. – Bart Apr 16 '13 at 13:17
I agree - it will be closed anyway now :) – mplungjan Apr 16 '13 at 13:17

If there no answer in the post, or if there is only one answer with 0 or less score then OP can delete the question.
