I posted a question titled "Construction of a $k$-variety from a separated scheme of finite type over a field $k$" in December last year. It was deleted yesterday by "Community". Here is the link to the deleted question. It had had no answer. I think it got negative reps for the first time less than a week ago. I think a question will be deleted if it has negative reps and has no answers for 30 days. So I think it was deleted too early. Am I wrong?


A sufficient set of conditions for auto-deletion is:

  • question is more than 30 days old
  • has negative score
  • has no answers
  • is not locked

From what you said, your question met all of the above conditions.

There are also other reasons for auto-deletion, see meta.SO.
