This question already has an answer here:

One of my questions was deleted and as such disappeared from my Activity and Questions tabs. There's no way for me to find this question now. It may have been marked as duplicate, but even in cases of deletion I should be able to find it.

Feature request: Deleted questions should show up in the owner's "Activity" and "Questions" tabs.

    Was likely deleted. Check your browser's history to get the url of it. – Adam Rackis May 23 '13 at 16:05
  • My question about the disappeared question will perhaps… disappear ? – Nicolas Barbulesco May 23 '13 at 16:09

    @NicolasBarbulesco There is no reason that I see for this question to be deleted, so no. While that's technically possible, it won't happen as this question doesn't meet the qualifications for deletion. Also, this is not a bug, this is the site working as it should; stop tagging it as a bug. – Servy May 23 '13 at 16:10

    Seems silly that this question is being downvoted into oblivion. So long as users can't see their deleted content in their profile, questions like this will be inevitable. – Adam Rackis May 23 '13 at 16:17

    @Servy it feels like a bug to the person who's question disappeared. – Kate Gregory May 23 '13 at 16:17
  • @KateGregory Sure, but when told that it's not a bug he shouldn't continue insisting that it is. – Servy May 23 '13 at 16:18
  • @Adam -2 is hardly oblivion... – Doorknob May 23 '13 at 16:18

    Yes, this is very undesirable. However the feature request that wants to change it is status-declined :( – Doorknob May 23 '13 at 16:20

    @NicolasBarbulesco The don't omit duplicates, they omit deleted questions. Not all duplicates are deleted; in fact, most aren't. – Servy May 23 '13 at 16:21

    @NicolasBarbulesco if it had been marked as duplicate it would probably not have been deleted unless it was identical to a previous question from you. – Kate Gregory May 23 '13 at 16:21

    @AdamRackis But it was -2 at the time you said it was "downvoted to oblivion". And even so, -3 is still not oblivion. – Servy May 23 '13 at 16:34

    Your question as written is a support issue. If you want to make it into a feature request, you have to actually name what your feature request is. Right now you have no actual feature request listed. – George Stocker May 23 '13 at 19:54

Your question was deleted by the community user for having negative votes and no activity for 30 days. You have to suss out the reason by magic.

You can't see your deleted questions unless you have a link to them or bookmarked them.

I prefer another approach for handling visibility of deleted questions.
