This question was deleted by Community.
But I can't see why. Shouldn't it only delete the old/closed questions?

    \$\begingroup\$ That is really odd. Hm. I think Community's trying to rise up against us :o "We should ban Community, it's really hurting our community" ~ some person on TNB \$\endgroup\$ – user42649 May 23 '17 at 12:33

The user who posted that challenge was destroyed as a sockpuppet account, which as a side effect deleted all of its content.

Needless to say, this is rather unfair to the users who posted the 40+ legitimate solutions. I've undeleted the challenge.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Oh, I forgot to consider the poster being deleted because I forget users can be deleted. Interesting. :P \$\endgroup\$ – user42649 May 23 '17 at 12:44
  • \$\begingroup\$ so, a "normal" user deletion wouldn't trigger the Community to delete the question too, right? \$\endgroup\$ – Rod May 23 '17 at 12:46

    \$\begingroup\$ @Rod That's right, delete and destroy are two separate options, the former of which only removes content with a negative score. \$\endgroup\$ – Doorknob May 23 '17 at 12:48
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Doorknob Similar scenario. I voted to undelete. Is there a way to look at what questions were deleted by Community yesterday? \$\endgroup\$ – mbomb007 May 24 '17 at 13:53

    \$\begingroup\$ It seems to have happened again, Doorknob; I just lost some rep from a user being deleted. \$\endgroup\$ – Shaggy May 25 '17 at 22:25
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Shaggy That's inevitable. When users get deleted for any reason, the votes they've cast are invalidated. \$\endgroup\$ – Dennis Jun 3 '17 at 1:41
