There should be a way for a question asker and moderator to have some kind of dialogue after the question has been locked or deleted. Should there not be a way for me to shadow edit for the moderator to review once again and then maybe approve for undelete?
I asked a question which got locked down because it contained content that was not fit for a family audience (which I find a stretch, but fair enough, I am not a moderator). I'm still very interested in asking this question, but I have no possibility to edit what was inappropriate since the moderator just locked it down without giving me the opportunity to change what was unfit. I have no reputation so I can't make any meta questions for the SE in particular (Sci-Fi & Fantasy).
The question had not been up for 30 minutes. Is it not harsh to lock it down with nothing more than a vague explanation and no examples of the unfit content?
I find this really toxic. I've made bad questions on GameDev before, and when I did that Byte56 edited it for me, explained what was wrong and then allowed the question to remain.
So again, should there not be a way for a user to communicate with the moderator after the question has been locked?
Be warned, it was a bad question (I mean I think it was a really kickass question but people don't seem to agree). The beef I had was me not being able to change the question in a way that SE did not find more acceptable.
