Appears that RemovedAbandonedClosed is added after the date of the question removal, if the question is deleted by Community.

Though it acts as a reason of removal (:P), I doubt it's intentional?


This is intentional.

Animuson explains what reasons are available in a post for this feature:

  • RemoveMigrationStubs
  • RemoveDeadQuestions
  • RemoveAbandonedQuestions
  • RemoveAbandonedClosed

An explanation of how each status is defined is explained further in this post


Intentional or not, I find this very useful. Deleted questions aren't visible to regular users, so putting useful information about the deletion directly visible to viewers is a good point.

The text might be formatted a little better, maybe linked to some FAQ about the Roomba script, but besides that: please leave it there!

  • I agree it doesn't harm anyone to display this info. But apart from being sort of an example to the linked help article, it doesn't seem to be really useful... You can, of course, sort those roomba-removed questions by the exact reason of removal, however it won't give you anything, will it? This info also won't affect your decision whether vote to undelete the question or not. – nicael Nov 5 '15 at 13:01
  • True but it helps to diagnose why your (or someone else's) question was deleted. We get those questions often right? – Patrick Hofman Nov 5 '15 at 13:02
  • And now you have a notice with the link to the help article :) Moreover, I don't get "RemoveDeadQuestions" in "another case" you linked (but when I click the link, everything gets clear once I read the first point - the need of these stats again?) - the confusions like mine can lead to the new questions. If the info remains there, it's worth probably to make a list explaining each stat. – nicael Nov 5 '15 at 13:05
  • That would be a feature request I would support :) – Patrick Hofman Nov 5 '15 at 13:11
