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 over at SO:

There was an answer and I forgot who posted it but it was helpful until the person deleted it (I think because of a misunderstanding)

Can I get it back. Or can someone with 10K+ rep retrieve it and repost it?

There are no deleted answers on that question. – mmyers May 4 '10 at 19:22
@mmyers - check the history of the oldest answer... – ChrisF May 4 '10 at 19:31
@ChrisF: Forgot there was a moderator involved already. Never mind. – mmyers May 4 '10 at 19:39
Is it just on my end, or does the other answer (the one that wasn't deleted) have a no author visible? – Grace Note May 4 '10 at 19:46
@ccornet - seems OK to me. – ChrisF May 4 '10 at 20:19
@ChrisF Okay, when I checked in yesterday on FF, I could see the author, but today, back on IE8 (I was checking the question for a different reason), the author is invisible again! How bizarre... – Grace Note May 6 '10 at 15:51

The correct thing to do here is flag your own question for moderator attention with the above text.

But, this will work too :)
