I asked a question on stackoverflow but have voted to delete it. Now I can't find it under questions on my profile page and I also searched for the title but couldn't find it. How can I find this question?

This one? http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2672482/showdialog-wont-run

Generally deleted posts only show if you have 10k+ rep; I'm a bit surprised it doesn't show your own deleted questions on your profile, though, and you might find you can't get back in. If you have problems, let me know; and do you a: want it undeleted, or b: want a copy of the original text.

when I follow that link I get "Page Not Found" ... but yes that looks like the right title. How do you search for that? How can I view this page? –  clawson Apr 20 '10 at 4:33
Well yes, i can't see my own deleted question. I would like to undelete it, because I found a may to make it work and thought the question was a bit silly, but then when I think I realised what was the actual problem I thought it might be appropriate to share. But looks like it doesn't want me to do that :-( –  clawson Apr 20 '10 at 4:37
@clawson The question has been undeleted. –  Jonathan Sampson Apr 20 '10 at 4:47
@marc: i recall hitting a threshold where i could suddenly see my own deleted questions. no idea where it is (3k? 5k? less? more?), but i'm pretty sure it was before i hit 10k and could see others' deleted posts. –  quack quixote Apr 20 '10 at 5:01
@Marc: i should also like to see my deleted questions/answers. Why not extend the search functionality with an appropriate parameter, for example: user:me is:question flag:deleted? –  Tim Schmelter Sep 6 '11 at 8:01
@Marc: I'm looking for a question I asked about whether UIApplication should inherit from UIResponder or NSObject. I asked to delete it because I thought I might have been breaking the Apple Developer NDA. But now, I found that I can site UIResponder Class Reference instead of the XCode 4.2 template. Would you please undelete this question so I can edit it? Thanks! –  MattDiPasquale Sep 26 '11 at 14:54
@JonathanSampson I just deleted my question titled something like: "objectsPassingTest: vs. filteredSetUsingPredicate:" Would you please un-delete that question and the one mentioned in my comment above? Thanks! :) –  MattDiPasquale Dec 4 '11 at 22:12
@MarcGravell: I am looking for my deleted questions(deleted by me or otherwise). Please. There is one specific question I asked about WPF Datagrid DateTime Colum Binding which I can't find link to even though I have 10k+ rep. Please Undelete it. –  Nikhil Agrawal Sep 15 '12 at 11:08
@Nikhil this one? stackoverflow.com/questions/11258131/… –  Marc Gravell Sep 15 '12 at 14:09
@MarcGravell: No not this one. Another one. WPF Databinding string format for DateTime Column. BTW is there a query to run in data.stackexchange to find only deleted questions. I tried SELECT * FROM Posts WHERE OwnerUserId = 1011959 but it shows all question other than deleted ones. –  Nikhil Agrawal Sep 16 '12 at 2:56
@Nikhil this one, then? stackoverflow.com/questions/11032285/… –  Marc Gravell Sep 16 '12 at 18:31
@MarcGravell: Yes this one. Thanks –  Nikhil Agrawal Sep 17 '12 at 1:04
