I've just stumbled across this poorly
If the question was poorly written chances are it may get closed.
But before the question is closed the user will be notified by other users that the question needs more details.
If the user does not pay attention to those comments and does not improve the question it is likely to get closed.
if you look through the comments it
appears that the user previously asked
an identical question that was deleted
- it occurred to me that this question may well have been deleted before the
poster had a chance to read any of the
comments / feedback on that question,
This looks like a rare occurrence, as the user might come back to check if any answers are posted.
If the question is closed he will get to know that the question is closed.
But in the case of having a deleted question instead of having a dedicated page as "My deleted questions" in the profile page as stefan suggested, the user can see the deleted question in the list of questions on the profile page marked in gray or red indicating that this question is deleted.
Also the user should be able to view the deleted question.
And when the user views the deleted question he gets to see a message displayed with the question indicating the reason the question was deleted, similar to the message shown for the closed questions.
