Today, Community♦ deleted this question. (10K only, obviously)

That's good, if you wonder. The question didn't add any value to the site.

But, as far as I could determine (my search-fu is weak, so I may have missed something), it doesn't meet the new criteria for auto-deletion,

  • Closed more than 7 days ago

Yes, that.

  • Not closed as a duplicate

That too.

  • Score <= 0

And that.

  • Not locked

Also this.

  • No answers with a score > 0

But not this!

  • No accepted answer
  • No pending reopen votes
  • No edits to the body or title of the question in the past 7 days

nor the old.

Having Community♦ auto-delete closed questions with negative score, but upvoted answers risks losing valuable content, so such questions should be brought to the attention of moderators/high-rep users to determine whether they should be deleted or kept.

Did Community♦ go past its duty, or have I missed something?

  • Hard to tell whether it was deleted by the usual cleanup, or from the owner deletion.

The owner has been deleted.

Negatively-scored questions by users that have since been deleted get auto-cleaned too.
