# How to get a link to an old question that was probably deleted for no answer/no votes?

I'd solved a scripting problem and included it as part of a question here a few years ago. I don't see the question and I'm guessing it was deleted for no answers/no activity or similar. I've searched for the script or blend everywhere on my computer and can't find any trace of it.

• old = circa 2016,
• possibly contains some of: interpolate, interpolation, bend, extrude, tube, snake, pipe

The question was about how to script the creation of extra polygons to regions of a bent tube mesh only where the bending radius was tight, so as not to have too many total polygons. My example script was a bent tube and there may have been a GIF animation included in the question.

Is there any way that I can find questions that were deleted by the Community bot?

You have six deleted questions. Five you deleted, and one (probably the one you are looking for) was deleted by the community bot.

You can always see your posts, OPs don't need 10k rep and the "View deleted posts" privilege to see your own posts. You do however need a link, it will not show up in your list of questions.

• This is excellent, thank you for your time tracking all these down! Yes that's the one, and this/these will save me time remembering what I'd done and getting back up to speed again.

As a regular user, no.

Users with access to moderator tools can only see deleted questions within at most 30 days, or search their own deleted posts with deleted:1 search operator. It's still possible for them... to traverse each question posted in 2016 (from ID 44022 to 70222) manually.

For users without that privilege, they can only see their own questions/answers deleted within 60 days.

Moderators might be able to help you since they can search for any deleted posts.

• @uhoh oops, bad copy-paste. But, yes, if it's your own deleted posts, then you can use deleted:1 after getting that privilege. Mar 12 '19 at 11:23
• oh! From comments below here you can see that this has been mentioned to me earlier, but I thought something like an SQL script was necessary. Now I understand that one can simply type deleted:1 in the search bar in any site where one has sufficient privileges. Thanks for taking the time to explain it to me!
