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 deleted a question over on stack overflow because I thought I had made a really stupid mistake then realized that I hadn't. When I got back to the question, it was no longer "valid" and couldn't push the undelete button. I looked at this post:

How do I find questions or answers that I've deleted?

But doesn't seem like anybody ever figured out a proper way to do it there other than having a moderator undelete it. Which is what I'm asking for now. If there is a better way to contact a moderator, please point in that direction for the future. Thanks.

If you need a question number I think can dig it out of my browser history.

Questions on Meta Stack Exchange are expected to relate to the software that powers the Stack Exchange network within the scope defined by the community. Consider editing the question or leaving comments for improvement if you believe the question can be reworded to fit within the scope. Read more about reopening questions here.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I believe moderators can view your deleted questions in your profile. And any 10k+ rep user can vote to undelete - if we can find the question. – mmyers Nov 18 '09 at 18:43

It needs 2 more votes to undelete, as of this comment. – GManNickG Nov 18 '09 at 19:07
1 More vote to undelete. I do hope you can clean it up a little. Those error messages look pretty daunting. – Super Long Names are Hilarious Nov 18 '09 at 19:23
Done. You're welcome :) – Stephan202 Nov 18 '09 at 19:37
Thanks all! What do I do with this meta question now? Can it just get closed? Or should I delete it? – Morinar Nov 18 '09 at 19:39
Probably post an answer saying, "Thanks, guys, it's open." and accept it. – GManNickG Nov 18 '09 at 19:41
Voting to close as no longer relevant – juan Dec 18 '09 at 20:04

Thanks all. It's undeleted now. Will accept my own answer here when I can.

How about I write up some stuff as an answer and you accept that instead? I believe this would be best way for us to handle this situation. – foraidt Nov 18 '09 at 20:05
Doesn't matter to me. I'll accept any answer on this question just so it shows that it's taken care of. On a side note, my original SO question was me doing something stupid... just not quite what I though it was :-p – Morinar Nov 18 '09 at 21:18
