Right now, there is no current way to tell that this post was deleted. Can we add another entry in here, to show that this answer was deleted on Oct 3 at 21:19 when the question was deleted?

My use case: Currently writing a bot to help try and detect possible bad reviews by users, for the mods. Right now, it's not possible to detect question deletion, without re-querying the question.

    Any particular reason why we'd need to add deletion history events for every single answer under the question? I can't think of any situations where this would be a useful thing to do. What led you to wanting this information there? – animuson Nov 8 at 19:45

    @animuson Well, the timeline should be all the events for that post. If the question was deleted, and as a result all the answers were deleted, why shouldn't this be included in the history? My use case: Currently writing a bot to help try and detect possible bad reviews by users, for the mods. I'm currently hanging out in the workshop room. Right now, it would be nice to detect answer deletion, without re-querying the question. More info here. – FrankerZ Nov 8 at 19:55

    I would edit that information into the question. Without context for why it's important, this request will be seen as a "just because" and almost certainly be declined. – animuson Nov 8 at 20:10
