What can cause a post to be deleted, and what does that actually mean?

Is it possible to undo the deletion of my own questions that I have deleted myself? If yes, then how can I do that?

I'm asking this because I read that users with 10k reputation can see the deleted posts, so they are still there in the database. If I delete any my question accidentally, then how can I get it back?

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.

Just curious, why did you use [discussion], [feature-request], [support] and [bug]? You only need one of those four. This happens every once in a while and I'm wondering how we can reduce its likelihood of occurring. Was the description on the Ask Question page confusing? –  Pops Jul 26 '11 at 18:10
    
NO its not duplicate of that just check the mean of this I'm not asking for the cause I'm asking how to get back the question deleted by your own self. –  avirk Jul 27 '11 at 1:25

closing as duplicate works a little differently on Meta SO. Here, duplicates are for any question that covers a topic that an existing FAQ also covers. I updated the FAQ to include your question and an answer, so it is now a duplicate by the Meta definition. –  Pops Jul 27 '11 at 14:31

There is not an easy way for you to do this, something I have complained about before. If you flag one of your other posts, select "Other" and explain what you want, a moderator should be able to undelete it for you.

What about the post which didn't get answer and deleted by myself not flagged? –  avirk Jul 26 '11 at 16:02
    
@avirk Just pick any of your posts and flag it, so that a moderator will see it. Tell the moderator that you just deleted a question and you would like it undeleted, and they will be able to see the question and do that for you. –  Jeremy Banks Jul 26 '11 at 16:04
    
Then its mean I have bad luck because I deleted them without flag. –  avirk Jul 26 '11 at 16:13
    
@avirk It doesn't matter how you deleted the old post, just flag any post you have made. –  Jeremy Banks Jul 26 '11 at 16:16
    
You can undelete your own questions without flagging... As long as they aren't locked. –  Cody Gray Jul 26 '11 at 16:17

@CodyGray I'm unable to see my own deleted questions, as we discussed here. Hence I needed to flag when I wanted a mod to undelete one. –  Jeremy Banks Jul 26 '11 at 16:18
    
How can I see them to undelete them. –  avirk Jul 26 '11 at 16:33
