I just deleted a post on the DBA SE beta site. When I tried to return to that page, I got the following message:

Your question was removed from Database Administrators - Stack Exchange for reasons of moderation. Please refer to the FAQ for possible explanations why your question might have been removed.

The system shouldn't show the "hey, we had to bring a mod in to clean up your mess, loser" text for self-deletes.

  • I just did this here on meta and got no such message. Does this only happen if you have < 10K? (and if so - what's that like?)

  • I just reproed on both SU and Board and Card Games. @status, can you log out or open a different browser and try it as a non-10ker?

  • When I view after logging off I get the normal 404. I don't have an account with less than 10K, so I can't try otherwise. Since you've got < 10K on the sites where you did this, I think that's the trick. It kinda makes sense, as a 10K shouldn't need that message. And, of course, it's not needed on self-deleted posts.

  • @status, what I meant was to post and delete a question as an unregistered user; that's a <10k account anyone can access.

  • @Pop - I did (stackoverflow.com/questions/5758990/…), but I can't delete it. Ugh.

    Based on the wording of the message, my guess is that the OP is the only one that actually sees this message.

    Ah, here are the rules for the wording: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/71179/….

  • @Robert - there's no case for the owner viewing his/her own self-deleted question.

  • @status: True enough.

  • @status The first case shown there includes self-deletion. My revision changed it to specify that the only thing that matters in that case is that you're the owner, regardless of who actually deleted it.

  • Regardless, I'd consider that this is a bug, albeit low priority. Jul 27 '11 at 16:13

I think this is an insane thing to even bring up, but whatever. Easy fix, so...

This question was voluntarily removed by its author – that's you!

    I think it was insane to ever write "for reasons of moderation" in that case, but whatever - I'm happy that it's fixed! Aug 15 '11 at 7:22
