My webapps question seems to have disappeared, I'm assuming it was deleted? It would be nice to be able to see this information somewhere, how can I learn what if anything I've done wrong if I get no feedback?

--added after ChrisF's helpful answer--

Ok, so not constructive is defined as: This question is not a good fit to our Q&A format. We expect answers to generally involve facts, references, or specific expertise; this question will likely solicit opinion, debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion.

I don't really see how this fits, seemed pretty straightforward to me. Unless there is some confusion as to what defines a "major" email provider? Then I could have been requested to reword my question.

The question was closed as "Not Constructive" as it was asking for just a list of email providers. In this format there is no real correct/incorrect answer (just a poll of services) which does not fit with the StackExchange Format.

If on the other hand, you wanted to figure out how to turn on auto-save in Hotmail that would be a good question.

The deletion was done based on a clean-up We need your help to clean up Web Apps! asked by another user. Normally we wait longer to delete a closed question giving the user time to review it and request a vote to reopen. In this case the deletion happened sooner than normal.

  • I see your point, although the details listed under "Not Constructive" don't really apply, but I'm assuming they're are more detailed FAQs on the main stackoverflow site. Commented Nov 8, 2011 at 8:58

Yes it was deleted.

The question was originally closed as "Not Constructive". See the FAQ for more information on why it might have been closed.

We normally leave closed questions on the site for a while to give the owner chance to revise the post in case it can be brought on topic or made constructive.

There are occasions when a question will be deleted sooner rather than later, but another moderator performed the deletion so you'll have to wait until they see this question and respond.
