I have noticed a loss in my reputation and I think it should be related to some user who has deleted his question with my answer, or maybe his account altogether. Are there any means to determine what was this deleted answer? I would like if possible to have its text for myself in case one asks something similar (or at least the title of the question - to avoid unsuccessful search over my past responses).
Recently deleted posts can usually be downloaded using Data Explorer, provided that the latest data dump took place after the creation of the post but before its deletion.
- Use Post with its answers, by Id if you know the Id of the deleted question. Since the Id is a part of the question's URL, it may be found in the history of your browser.
- Alternatively, use the query My posts in reverse chronological order. It will return all your posts present in the current data dump, with all associated data.
Also, a Google search for title or fragment of the post with the parameter
site:math.stackexchange.com will usually lead to the cached version of the post.
If it's your question that gets deleted, finding it is easy: go to your
user profile ->
deleted recent questions at the bottom. You don't need 10K to see your own deleted questions.
