# Can a user be encouraged to repost a deleted question?

A user posted a question that received negative comments and downvotes, and he promptly deleted it. The question was poorly formulated, but could easily have been sharpened to a clear mathematical question that had a precise answer; and I believe that this answer would have satisfied the user, who is now simply discouraged from posting. The user has over $1000$ reputation points, and obviously could be contacted via a comment to one of his other (unrelated) posts; but this seems to be a misuse of the comment system. Is there an approved way to encourage a user to repost a deleted question?
