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.
