The real duplicate is: How do notifications on deleted posts work?
Say someone joins a site in Stack Exchange and posts an answer. That answer is not good enough, so it gets some comments to finally be deleted by a moderator. The user has not been active on the site during all of this, so no notifications arrived to him before the question got deleted.
After few days, the user enters the site again and his answer is gone. However, is he still able to see the comments that were written to him, as well as to see his initial post and update it? More importantly: does he get the notifications on the comments? (which is something not covered in any of the targeted duplicates).
This is relevant to me since in a site I mod we some times have the case of someone posting an answer that can be a hidden gem, but needs quite a lot of polishing. This is a common case in Spanish Stack Exchange: a very basic answer consisting in a mere translation, that could somehow get improved by the author by adding some references and examples. It is more a comment than an answer, so it does not deserve to be kept there, but if the author dares to do some extra work on it, it will be very useful.
I do want the user to get our feedback in comments, so I wonder if it is lost if the post gets deleted.
It would be also interesting to know if such behaviour is the same for users with reputation 1 (brand new users) and reputation 101 (trusted users in other sites).
