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 ...

I think that amon's answer pretty much covers it, but as the moderator who deleted it, I wanted to walk through my process. The answer was brought to the attention of the mod team by flags. At least one user thought that the post needed moderator intervention to address concerns that the community members could not handle on their own. In response to the ...

First of all, the question itself would be considered off topic under current rules. It is a detailed legal question about the AGPLv3 and not about really about software engineering. The question should be closed. Nevertheless, your answer addresses this legal topic. It presents a valid opinion. It however fails to clarify what the commonly accepted ...

Because it was essentially a link only answer where the actual answer is behind a paywall. (and where the person following it also has to wait on shipping and handling) That is not conductive to a Q&A.

I deleted the answer because it was not only attracting down votes, but flags reporting it as not an answer. I agreed with those flags because very little, if any, of the content of the answer was addressing the question that was asked. You talk a lot about characteristics of a scripting language without ever, in my opinion and the opinion of other users, ...

Maybe gnat's comment did not explain well to you what was wrong (in your attempt to answer this question), but Thomas Owens (who deleted your question) was IMHO right. Let me explain why. Since I have trouble to understand what you are trying to say with this short statement, and how it answers the OPs question, I guess other readers probably had the same ...

I don't have much to add over Doc Brown's comments on this question. We have guidance on what makes a good answer. We also expect that answers explain how and why it helps the asker. I don't see how it answers the questions asked of how to safely work with namespaces.

Your answer was a link-only answer that didn't provide much more than external resources in the body. This isn't considered a high-quality answer: Links to external resources are encouraged, but please add context around the link so your fellow users will have some idea what it is and why it’s there. Always quote the most relevant part of an important ...

The deleted question is actually closed as a duplicate to this one, which contains a more complete list of freelance sites. Best solution in this case would be to probably edit the existing answer to point to this non-deleted post instead of the deleted post, although in other cases where there isn't a good non-deleted duplicate, we'd probably want to edit ...

Deleted answers are visible to users with a reputation over 10,000. It can be undeleted if necessary (ask an admin). But usually if it was deleted, there was generally a reason for it.

You have 9 deleted answers on Programmers. 7 of those were deleted when the question was deleted, one you deleted yourself and the more recent one was deleted by three community members. I'm guessing that's the one you are looking for, here's the link to the question: How to indicate that a class might implement an interface?. As ChrisF already mentioned, ...

You can always see your deleted answers (regardless of your reputation) when viewing the question. So as long as you have (or can find) a link to the question you can then find the the link to the answer. Of course, only moderators or 10K+ users will be able to see your answer, so it would be best to include the text of the answer in your Meta question.

It looks like it was deleted by a moderator because it did not meet the quality standards we have for answers on this site. Short one sentence answers really fail to capture a full explanation needed, even if the OP is asking a painfully simple question. Here is a link with some helpful information on how to write better answers. https://...
