I just noticed that this question was deleted but I can't understand why.


What can be the reason and how I can "undelete" it?

    $\begingroup$ Most people cannot see what is linked to. Perhaps describe the situation a bit. Who deleted it? What was the score? Had it answers? (If the answers are Community, nonpositive, none, then it was very likely autodeleted.) $\endgroup$

It was automatically deleted by the Community♦ user. The question was 30 days old, had a negative score and no answer. Such questions are removed automatically.

Since ordinary users cannot undelete ♦-moderator deleted posts, you cannot undelete it yourself, you need to flag it for moderator attention if you want it to be undeleted. Ordinary 10k+ users can now undelete Community♦-deleted posts, but it requires three undelete votes (or moderator intervention), so if you want it undeleted, post in the Requests for Reopen & Undeletion Votes thread making your case (or flag for moderator attention; not recommended as first option).

Note, however, that if the status remains (negative score, no answers), it will be deleted again by Community♦ when the script next runs (weekly, I think), so unless there is reason to expect a change of that status, moderators people will be hesitant to undelete.

    $\begingroup$ @JonasMeyer That's the daily script, which deletes eligible closed questions (9 days old, etc). The low-scoring questions that meet 30- or 365- day criteria are deleted by a weekly script. It runs about 0:00 on Saturdays (UTC). $\endgroup$
