I had been searching for an old arcade game I used to play for years (the only one I played a lot, I was not a player). I thought gaming.stackexchange could help me, redacted a very detailed question (Help identifying a late 80s arcade shooter game?) and thanks to a number of people that helped I finally found it, granted a bounty. It was a great moment, lots of people commented.

Now I wanted to check one thing on the question, and I entered gaming.stackexchange, as I never enter anymore (I'm no gamer) I had a notification I had the Popular question badge, I went to see the question and...it was deleted.

I asked in meta.stackoverflow and found out I cannot view it in any way, only a moderator could. So, could some moderator provide me with the question somehow so I can save it locally?

A reason why the question was deleted would be appreciated too.

    Oops, hit the wrong close reason. These questions were voted off-topic and are now disallowed, with the old ones deleted. You should be able to use the Data Explorer to retrieve the content. This shows the post, getting answers would be slightly more complicated: data.stackexchange.com/gaming/query/67753/… – Matthew Read Apr 25 '12 at 18:28

    Well, as a 10k user I can offer you this massive screenshot. For the reason why it was deleted, see Matthew's comment above. – a cat Apr 25 '12 at 18:36
  • @lunboks some comments are missing I guess, but that's what I wanted yes, appreciated. – albert_vad Apr 25 '12 at 18:50
