I was stupid an answered a question with just a link. I then went back and edited my answer to actually something useful, only to find that no one will ever see it again because a moderator deleted it (Sad Panda). Is there a way to get it undeleted?
If your post has been edited to fix the reason it was deleted, then you can flag it for a moderator to undelete with the "flag" link below the post. Just select the "Other" option, and state the reason for your flag (that it was edited to no longer be a link-only answer, and that you want it undeleted)
Users with over 10k reputation can see deleted posts and vote to undelete them, however we can only vote to delete posts that were deleted by the community. Posts deleted by a moderator need to be undeleted by a moderator.
