Earlier today, I posted a question and self-answer that proved unpopular (-3 to both). I deleted the answer so I could rethink it, but I also deleted the question, thinking it worked the same way. I see, however, that's not the case.

It was not my intention to permanently delete the question. Is there a way I, or someone else, can undelete it?

(The question was related to identifying a scale based on a set of notes or chords.)

You can undelete it yourself; go to the 'questions' tab on your profile (or visit this link) and click the 'recently deleted questions' link at the bottom. There you'll find your question and you'll be able to undelete it.

  • Got it. I see the list shows questions "deleted in the last 60 days". Does that mean that after 60 days the deletion does in fact become permanent?

    No, if you have a link to the question you can always visit and undelete it. If you have 10k reputation, you can even search for deleted content you own.
