I asked a question a while ago:


It's apparently been "deleted for reasons of moderation" - but I never got notified of it being closed/downvoted - so I'm a bit confused as to what happened.

If someone with the necessary reputation level could look at it and tell me what happened? I just want to know where I went wrong.

It was deleted by automated process back in May 5th as it got no answers and no upvotes for a year and didn't have enough views or comments to "justify" keeping it around.

Here is the official post where it was implemented:

Enable automatic deletion of old, unanswered zero-score questions after a year?

  • Thank you, Sha. I was getting a little confused wondering how it met the criteria for being a bad question.

  • @TZHX not a bad question, more like abandoned question. Sep 27, 2012 at 13:06
  • not really abandonned, it just never got any answers so I moved on with life (and got a different job). I'll accept this when the system lets me.

  • If you want to re-ask the question let me know, I can copy&paste it here for your sake - maybe now you can ask it better in a form that will attract more attention to it. :) Sep 27, 2012 at 13:09
