One of my answers has been deleted, but I'm not able to find which one it is and why. Is there any way to find to which answer it was, and why it got deleted from my SO account?

I had 187 answers but now it's 186.


I can't see any rep change in the rep history either.

    For you last sentence: In reputation tab click on show removed posts. It will show you removed posts where your reputation is affected. – Himanshu Jansari Feb 13 '13 at 14:43

    i checked that , it shows nothing. – Mirage Feb 13 '13 at 14:44
  • @hims056 that only works if the answer had votes – juan Feb 13 '13 at 14:51
  • If you had comments for that answer it might still exist in your "inbox" tab on your network profile. – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Feb 13 '13 at 14:52
  • but how will i know that which answer it was , there are many comments from many answers – Mirage Feb 13 '13 at 14:54
  • @jmfsg - Yeh thats why I added at last : where your reputation is affected. :) – Himanshu Jansari Feb 13 '13 at 14:58
  • 10ks and the owners used to be able to see deleted answers in the profile, but it appears that has now been restricted to mods. – Kevin Feb 13 '13 at 15:17
  • @иɪvэЖєvɪɴ yes its seems .. can not see deleted post .. – NullPoiиteя Feb 13 '13 at 15:29
  • @иɪvэЖєvɪɴ If you mean in the user profile of a user, that is only possible for moderators, but it has been so for a while now. Other users can see a deleted answer if they flagged it, and they are 10K users, or if they are given a link to the answer (and they are 10K users). – kiamlaluno Feb 13 '13 at 15:32

    @Catija: Doesn't seem to be answerable with the instructions there. – Nathan Tuggy Jun 20 '16 at 16:59

This question which you had answered was deleted 10 hours ago: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14515695/js-game-assistance

And since the SE engine likes to convert this answer to a comment when posting it, here's the content of your deleted answer:

You need to use some server side language like php so that when the user play for the first time then you mark that in the database and you need to check that before running the game.

You can store the ip information if you don't have any other details to store

you can also use cookies to store the user information. But if the user chnage the browser or delete them then you can't do anything

Since that answer had zero votes there is indeed no way to find that on your own - even I had to go through your deleted answers and check which one was deleted today.


You can see all your deleted posts by searching deleted:yes on the site in question.

Note this shows only your own deleted posts.
