What can cause a post to be deleted, and what does that actually mean?

Is it possible to undo the deletion of my own questions that I have deleted myself? If yes, then how can I do that?

I'm asking this because I read that users with 10k reputation can see the deleted posts, so they are still there in the database. If I delete any my question accidentally, then how can I get it back?

    Just curious, why did you use [discussion], [feature-request], [support] and [bug]? You only need one of those four. This happens every once in a while and I'm wondering how we can reduce its likelihood of occurring. Was the description on the Ask Question page confusing?

    closing as duplicate works a little differently on Meta SO. Here, duplicates are for any question that covers a topic that an existing FAQ also covers. I updated the FAQ to include your question and an answer, so it is now a duplicate by the Meta definition.

There is not an easy way for you to do this, something I have complained about before. If you flag one of your other posts, select "Other" and explain what you want, a moderator should be able to undelete it for you.

  • What about the post which didn't get answer and deleted by myself not flagged?

  • @avirk Just pick any of your posts and flag it, so that a moderator will see it. Tell the moderator that you just deleted a question and you would like it undeleted, and they will be able to see the question and do that for you.

  • @avirk It doesn't matter how you deleted the old post, just flag any post you have made.

  • You can undelete your own questions without flagging... As long as they aren't locked. Commented Jul 26, 2011 at 16:17

    @CodyGray I'm unable to see my own deleted questions, as we discussed here. Hence I needed to flag when I wanted a mod to undelete one.
