I posted my first answer ever in Stackoverflow. I'm not sure exactly why it was deleted, but I still tried to enrich it after the deletion.


  • What else should I edit or add to make my answer proper?
  • What should I do next?
  • Will it notify the moderators to just edit the answer without doing anything else? (At least this post cannot be undeleted, so I don't know what else can I do)
  • Your post was probably deleted due to being little more than a link initially. That said, you seem to have improved it significantly since then; this automatically puts it in a queue for review. If enough users feel the answer has been fixed, it will be undeleted.

  • The meta effect -- your answer is undeleted!

  • Bookmarking, as I'll refer anyone confused about how to write a great answer right here.

1 Answer 1


This was the answer you posted in the first instance:

I have the same question as you, but I have an alternative to do this: use chrome.downloads.download api.

But still I want to know a perfect answer to the question, like what I also asked here: Does chrome extension api support downloads directly from browsing cache?

This seems more to be of a question than an answer. It would have collected at least 5 flags indicating that it is not an answer before it was deleted by a moderator.

Ensure that you attempt to answer a question when you post an answer. DO NOT seek clarifications or ask another question when posting an answer and chances are that it wouldn't be deleted1.

1 Unless the post is deemed to be a spam.

  • Thanks a lot! A very clear explanation!
