Currently if a question is deleted, users with <10K will see a broken link in their list of deleted answers.

For example, on one of the sites a link to one of my answers results into a 404 page. However, it turns out that I can see my answer still by looking at the post revisions instead.

Could we have a link to the post revisions instead in the list of deleted answers for users who don't have the required privilege, i.e. less than 10K? As is, the link to deleted answer is rather useless in case the post has been deleted and it's not quite obvious that an alternate link can provide access.

    It would still be confusing; I can already see the questions here on Meta: Why do some of my deleted answer links go to the revisions page, while others go to the actual post? – Martijn Pieters Feb 27 '14 at 17:03

    @MartijnPieters Perhaps less confusing than: One can always see their own posts even if those are deleted and still end up in 404. – devnull Feb 27 '14 at 17:06
  • Sure, just pointing out the one slight problem with the idea. Note: I did not downvote your suggestion either. :-P – Martijn Pieters Feb 27 '14 at 17:09
