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.
Extension, 2021: now everybody can get a list of their deleted questions/answers by clicking the "Deleted questions" / "Deleted answers" link at the bottom of the "Questions" ("Answers") tab of your profile. Thank you, SE!
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).
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.
- Questions with a deleted answer and no other answers
- Questions with a deleted answer (and no other answers), by 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.
