From a previous thread, it seems that the functionality to list deleted answers has been removed. Is this true? What if I only want to see a list of my own deleted answers?


Recently this feature was added to the SE.

You can get a list of your own deleted posts by clicking here.

You can do it only if you have at least 10000 reputation.


The answer by iostream007 is actually valid now: the profile tab /votes/deletion shows you all the votes to delete that you cast, on your own posts and on the posts of others. This is the result of an ancient feature request (July 2012) fulfilled recently.

Alternatively, open the /answers tab of the profile and click "deleted recent answers" at the bottom. As the name suggests, this shows only relatively recent answers (60 days, if I remember correctly).

There is no way to do that. Only moderators can see deleted posts in user profiles, regular users can't see them.

The best I could do with data.SE was to produce the list of questions which have at least one deleted answer and do not have any non-deleted answers. There are two versions of the query: all questions, and questions with a particular tag.

The query does not see the questions with both deleted and non-deleted answers. It also does not know the author(s) of the deleted answer(s).

But I think the lists may still be of value; these tend to be non-straightforward problems.

Here is a hopeful sign: SE is testing the possibility of showing users the list of their recently deleted questions. See What is the 'deleted recent questions' page in the user profile?. I don't see any link to this list on the user profile, but the feature appears to work if you navigate to


where xxxxx is your user number (e.g., $1551$). My list is empty since I did not ask any questions on main; hopefully someone with recent deleted questions can test this and confirm if it works.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks a lot. Although they are not what I need, the three links you provided are interesting and useful. $\endgroup$ – user1551 Jun 23 '13 at 8:57

In your profile go to "votes" tab.then you will see some sub tab like "all,upvote,downvote,"here in deletion and undeletion you can see your deleted answers.

    $\begingroup$ Thanks, but apparently, the "deleted" option in the "votes" tab only lists those answers that you have once deleted but reopened later. Answers that remain deleted are not shown. $\endgroup$ – user1551 Jun 22 '13 at 13:05

    $\begingroup$ @user1551 That behavior was changed; see my answer. $\endgroup$ – user147263 Jul 9 '14 at 18:57
