I want to know if my question was deleted 4 months ago. I don't want it, but whenever I go to my questions, I can see my questions in the recently deleted questions.

  • If it was deleted 1 year ago, you do not see it in the "recently deleted questions" list. "What does Stack Overflow do if it's been 1 year since my question was deleted?" Nothing. I'm not sure I understand the question here. Can you please edit and try to clarify more?

    Still not clear. Are you trying to find your deleted questions that don't appear in the "recently deleted questions" list? If so, unfortunately, that's not possible until you reach 10K reputation. You could flag one of your posts for a moderator intervention and ask them to find your old deleted posts for you. You probably should have a good reason though, otherwise, they might not appreciate it (I'm just speculating).

  • Maybe this thread? I'm not sure.

    FWIW, I think that disallowing low-rep users from viewing their old deleted questions is a bad decision. I do have a feature request about this though: Allow all users to use the deleted:1 operator to find their own deleted posts. Let's hope it gets picked up soon enough.

    @AnkitTiwari No, questions (and answers) are never completely deleted (except in very rare situations). They're just hidden from the view. The author and 10K users can always see them (if they have a link). No one can find them without a direct link though (except moderator and the post author if they have 10K+ rep).

    It does nothing about them. You can't see them after 6 months, but users with 10k+ reputation and moderators can always see deleted posts. Jun 26, 2021 at 10:05
  • “Sorry, for taking your attention for this stupid question and my english is too bad so apology for that too.” - You could always use the appropriate tools to fix the grammatical errors. You shouldn’t feel a need to apologize for your English, since you can do something about it, by using the appropriate tools.
