- Search results are old/out of date 1 answer
As a mod on https://ux.stackexchange.com/ I often do a search of
deleted:1 to see what posts have been removed that I may not know about, or to refresh my memory of any spammy nonsense. Just doing a general check of the state of the site to see what's been going on.
However, doing so today I am not seeing anything since the end of May 2014.
A check with the mods from some other sites seem to say this is happening elsewhere too.
- No deleted posts on Webapps since 1st June
- No deleted posts on DIY since 1st June
- No deleted posts on Programmers since 1st June
And even on StackOverflow the last one to appear in
deleted:1 search is from the 2nd June.
So what is going on? Have they been completely expunged from the known universe? Or is the
deleted:1 search string no longer the one to use - and if so, how do we find deleted posts nowadays?
