Post 31265 and Post 31267 are working fine, but https://area51.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/31266 leads nowhere. I have earned enough rep to see deleted posts, and I do see them all the time, but not this time. What happened to post 31266?

    Usually, you'll need 10k reputation to view deleted posts. Can you see my deleted answer here?

    Strange. I don't see your deleted post (although I upvoted it for the humor, since you said you like "flags" but meant moderation flags rather than flag designs). But I see this deleted post, don't you? You're right it says that we need 10,000 to view deleted posts: area51.stackexchange.com/faq, however I could have sworn that the rep required on A51 was significantly lower. There's a total of 7 people with 10k, out of about 100,000 users. Jul 19, 2020 at 2:14
  • I don't see that deleted answer either. Is it your own? Did you ask the question?

  • As someone who's certainly don't have enough rep to see deleted posts on here, I can't see all the posts linked on here ;)

  • @Glorfindel I was not the one that asked the question, but I did write an answer to that question, so maybe that's why I can see it. I was under the impression that I had enough rep to see deleted posts here because I see them often. The Languages Supersite proposal for example, was deleted for some period of time and I thought I could see that one too (but maybe because I wrote an answer to it). Jul 20, 2020 at 17:31

You need 10,000 reputation to see deleted posts (with some exceptions, such as your own deleted posts, or deleted questions you've answered; the full list is documented on Meta Stack Exchange). Area 51 Discussions has the same privilege level as normal sites even though Area 51 uses a different one.

So the post was deleted, just like what happens to many others on the site. I do happen to have some information about it, because it was logged in a script of mine; it was about a now deleted proposal Android APP Development.
