# Question deleted and reposted by same user.

A user just asked this question but removed it after it was heavily downvoted.

Then he proceeded to post the same question again with no apparent change whatsoever.

Is this allowed? It seems like it shouldn't be.

• It is definitely not allowed. – Michael Greinecker Mar 20 '14 at 11:24

• If you have downvotes, and you delete the question, is your reputation restored? – GEdgar Mar 20 '14 at 14:34
