I answered a question like a month back concerning the radius of convergence of a specific series where the poster had a polynomial so I pointed out that convergence is all of $\mathbb{R}$, not the most interesting question but since nothing was done until today I am confused by its deletion. My answer to that question was accepted and up voted a couple of times which means the poster themselves can not have deleted it according to the help center post.

I cannot see the reasons for deletion so could someone please explain why it was deleted now?

    $\begingroup$ Without including a link to the question that was asked, I'm afraid we can't help you too much. When a question is very low quality, it might be closed, and when a question is closed, so are all the answers to it. If you have a link, perhaps we can then see whether your answer alone was deleted, or the entire post. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @amWhy I sadly do not have a link. My reputation is to low to see deleted content I suppose. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ For those who can see deleted posts: please see this question. @AndréArmatowski It was the question that was closed for lacking context of any sort, then deleted. As I said, when a question is closed, then deleted, any answers to it are also deleted. The question you answered was a very poor post not meeting site standards. In the future, please be more careful when selecting posts you choose to answer. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @amWhy Thank you for the clarification, that answers my question. I am not disagreeing with its deletion, but I am disagreeing with not being notified. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I think you should be able to see your answer listed here: math.stackexchange.com/users/recently-deleted-answers/649348. That is the link to "Recently Deleted Answers", available at the bottom of the "Answers" tab on your profile. $\endgroup$
